Pros: cute, small, nice colors that are bright
One day I sat down to help my kids make some cards and started using the markers we had- half of them being dried out or the tips well all smushed in. I said- why didnt you tell me these markers were this bad, Ill get some more next time I go shopping! So, when I went to Wal-Mart I decided to try Crayola Pip-Squeaks Washable Markers, which I paid $4 and something for a package of 16.
One reason I bought these is because there were more colors in the package than the standard package. Plus these are so much cuter- they are only about 3 ? inches long. Heres the colors that come in the little clear plastic sleeve:
Little boy blue
Toy poodle black
Rain drop blue
They all have such cute names! Also, with the smaller size, to me and my kids they are a little easier to hold and deal with- the full size markers to me are a little too chubby, but these arent quite as chunky.
Also, these are washable, which are the only kind I like to buy. My youngest got these on the carpet by accident, and it came up when I steamed the carpet. It will also wash off hands and clothing as well.
The colors are very bright and vibrant- none of them seem to be faded looking like some of the other sets we have had. Also, its pretty hard to squash the tips or tear them up like others weve had- these are much more durable.
Overall, these are markers that I would recommend- they are easy to hold and use, wash out of clothing, off skin, and come out of carpet, and the colors are pretty and vibrant and there are plenty of color choices in this pack! I have seen these in some treat bags we have gotten in the past as well.
