My kids are notorious for leaving the caps off of their markers! It drives me absolutely bonkers every time I find a lone cap drifting aimlessly under my dining room table. Ugh...WHY?! I honestly thought I was doomed to the bitter and, frankly, monotonous repurchasing cycle. But there may be hope yet with the Magic Stix Washable Markers from The Pencil Grip, Inc.
When I came across this review opportunity, I was sure it was like an answer to prayer. Markers that don't dry out when caps are left off?...Umm...Yes! The claim is that you can leave the caps off for 7 days and they won't dry out or lose their vibrancy. Yeah...pretty sure these markers were made for my kids. And washable?! That's all you really ask of a marker as a parent I think.
Of course, what's a claim if you can't back it up? The company encouraged us to test out the claim, so, we did! I'm not gonna lie though, I was super stressed out about intentionally leaving the caps off the markers. I felt like I was going against everything I had adamantly stood for for the past 7 years...but I digress.
So, did the "won't dry out for 7 days with no caps" prove true? If you didn't check out the video above, the answer is yes! We removed the cap from all 24 of the Magic Stix Washable Markers and just left them there...for 7 whole days. Eeekks! Lol I couldn't wait to get to day 7 so I could put the caps back on; However, I was pleased when, by day 7, the markers were still writing as vibrant as they had on day 1.
Some other reviewers from the Homeschool Review Crew even left the caps off for 30+ days! You can check out their reviews here.
Even though the whole washable claim didn't deliver like I had expected, I would still give these markers a 4.5 out of 5. Washable is great but when weighed up against not drying out, it's no contest with this mama. I'll just have to be more vigilant about keeping them in the classroom instead of at my dining room table.
If your looking for a quality set of markers, Magic Stix Washable Markers can definitely give you that. The vibrancy and color selection of these markers opens amazing opportunity for creativity. My kids absolutely love them and use them on almost a daily basis.
