Tickled pink...and green...and blue...
16 March 2017
This is the third set of liquid chalk pens I've owned - if I'd known about them sooner, I may well have had more.
I bought these pens for my five year old daughter, as there never seems to be enough paper in the house for the endless doodling that she loves to do. My hope was that I could utilise other surfaces for her to draw on, without having to splash out on a chalk board or similar. Specifically, I hoped that the two, wall to ceiling, glass fronted wardrobes in her bedroom would become a super-sized canvas which she could scribble on until her heart's content.
As with my previous sets, I did a 'test run' before handing them out to my daughter and her friends - you want to check that they'll work as advertised before you have kids drawings all over your surfaces. They certainly kept them quiet for some time - perhaps a combination of the ease of using the pens, the bright colours and the sheer novelty of being allowed to draw on the furniture. This set of pens had more colours than the ones I'd previously purchased, with a range of fifteen vibrant chalks. In addition, there are a further six metallic markers, more than enough to keep any child busy.
The pens really do work as well as you could possibly hope for, and they are easy to clean off of glass - just a wipe over with a damp cloth. However, for anyone doing the same as me and dishing them out to kids, I'd suggest sleeves be rolled up, and the carpet be covered, as porous surfaces are not so easily cleaned.
