It is no secret I love pens - particularly pretty ones. I also love pretty paper. So when Shoplet asks me to review pens and I get to keep them to play with - no problem!
My package had lots of pens in it. The first I looked at was a Pilot FriXon Erasable Pen. Generally I tend not to like erasable pens. The ink seems to want to "skip". I used this on several papers for school (cheap notebook paper) and then again in my journal. I didn't notice any grabbing or missing marks. It has a nice feel to it - the pen is large so it fits in my hand comfortably. As you can see from the photo (I hope) it does erase. However it leaves a bit of a trail behind, but really no different than a pencil might. It also has somewhat "smudgy" ink. Not a problem, if you let it dry a bit before moving your hand across it.
An erasable highlighter? Really? Now how cool is that?! I can see lots of uses within my classroom. I tried it on several surfaces and was very satisfied with how it worked. I have never seen one of these and really wish it had been around when I was in school. They can be purchased by the dozen at around $11.00. Not a bad price and erasable too.
Before I could get to reviewing today, I had a lot of school work to do. So I grabbed one of the pens from this collection - the Acroball. I like the grip on this pen. It is designed to be comfortable. It also writes a very smooth black ink. I plan on taking this one to school to use, since black ink can be needed at times. However, I will guard it because it writes so nicely!
And now for the "pretties". The pens are pretty - but that ink! The ink from the Pilot B2P Pens
is really cool! I love the colors. These are gel pens, made from recycled water bottles! They sort of have kept that water bottle look! That is so neat. The ink, as I said, is gel and a very bright color! I like these very much!
