A Bit Difficult to Grasp,
= Durability: = Fun: = Educational:
This review is from: Crayola Beginnings First Markers (8 Pack) (Toy)I bought these for my 18 month old daughter last week after having huge success with crayons and pencils but unfortunately it has taken her a while to get used to these and they are often picked last to use.
It seems that she holds a crayon/pencil etc. "as an adult would" on the tilt slightly whereas most children starting out will "grab" a pen and scribble in an almost vertical position which if your child does this then these are great and designed for just that but for children that draw like my daughter they will quickly get frustrated at the white rim of the pen hitting the paper first and getting in the way... Hope that made sense?!?!
I haven't had any problems washing them off skin or clothes (in a 30deg wash) either which is always a bonus!
