7 Days with NO cap: Magic Stix Washable Markers ~ a TOS review


I have a daughter who loves to doodle and draw. In fact all of my kids love to color. Being able to express yourself through art is therapeutic for the soul! Sometimes finding high quality, safe, and most importantly washable art supplies can be quite a challenge. I want my kids to get creative and messy, but I don't always want the mess that goes along with it. That's why my craft loving kids have enjoyed using Magic Stix Washable Markers from The Pencil Grip, Inc.!


If you are not familiar with The Pencil Grip company, it was founded in 1992 by Dr. Lois Provda, a prominent educational therapist. Since inventing the first grips way back in the early 90's, the company has grown to offer many unique and innovative products for the home, school, and office. The newest item for The Pencil Grip, Inc. is the Magic Stix marker. We received the 24 pack and have been using them in some fashion every week!


So, just what is so special about these particular markers? Let me tell you all about their greatness!

Washable ~ marker on your hands, face and/or body, clothes? What about the walls and carpet? No problem, it comes out! 

Unscented ~ no smelly fumes to cause headaches here. 

Assorted colors ~ bright, vibrate colors. Available in packs of 12 or 24. 

No-cap guarantee ~ long lasting colors that won't dry out even when the cap is left off for 7 days!


These markers arrived just in time for us to travel to Atlanta and they were a life saver on the long trip. Not only did I not have to worry about them drying out because they were left uncapped in the van, but they were the perfect activity for my kids to do as I plugged along down the highway.


The plastic carrying case is the perfect size for our on the go bag! It is made from durable plastic and not too clunky. Inside each marker snaps into place and the case has two latches to keep it closed on the outside. I love that the case keeps the markers neat and tidy. With 24 different colors you are sure to find just the right shade you are looking for. The tip of the marker is not too fat or too skinny so you won't have any problems doing detail work.


Overall, we love these markers and they go everywhere with us in our travel bag! The fact that the cap can stay off for 7 plus days is HUGE in my book, especially since I have a three year old who frequently forgets to recap the markers. Each of our makers has been going strong since the day we got them, cap or no cap. The fact that these markers are non-toxic, odorless, and come in a variety of colors hues you need to get your hands on a set of the these. You marker budget will thank you! I would love to see The Pencil Grip release a dry erase set of markers like these!
