My kids (all four littles) are notorious for leaving the lids off of the markers. We throw markers away all. the. time. I have resorted to buying our markers at Dollar Tree because I know that undoubtedly 90% are just going to get thrown away because they dry out in a few hours.
The problem here isn’t that the caps are eternally gone, we always end up finding them. But by the time we find them, the marker is either a) dried out or b) thrown away!
However, these bad boys are guaranteed not to dry out for seven days! No more throwing away markers for us!
Magic Stix Washable Markers
As soon as the markers arrived, the kids grabbed some of their coloring books and went to work.
That Minecraft coloring book I found at Goodwill for .33 in basically brand new condition. Max was super excited to use the Magic Stix Markers in his new book. The rose picture is part of a cursive coloring book that I’ll be telling you all about in a few days.
The Magic Stix come in a nice hard plastic case that locks closed. The handle on the case makes it easy to carry around. I was impressed by the color variation in the 24 pack. There are five different shades of green! My girls were excited to see six different shades of pink and purple.
And as always, I was glad to see grey was included. It seems like grey gets forgotten a lot when it comes to coloring kits or sets. There are also several different flesh colors, that’s always great.
The Magic Stix Markers are great for:
- even walls! (yes, we had an incident, but no worries, it came off)
The kids absolutely love these markers. The colors are bright and bold and the write smoothly. Also, the caps are all identical, so there’s no worrying about getting the wrong lid on. Overall, these are a wonderful art product to keep on hand. That being said, I was a bit disappointed to see that the markers are made in Korea instead of the States. But that is a minor thing and most people don’t care one way or another.
I wish I would have had these years ago. They are going to save me so much money! Now when I can’t find a marker lid, I just put it up for a few hours (or days) until we find it.
