Review of Magic Stix Washable Markers and Wonder Stix from The Pencil Grip, Inc

Is your family ready to dive into some creative expression? Craft loving kids will love using Magic Stix Washable Markers and Wonder Stix from The Pencil Grip, Inc!

Chilly days are perfect for pulling out the crafting materials and let your imagination and creativity go wild! The Pencil Grip, Inc. has two especially fantastic mediums your kids (and you) will love!

What is the Pencil Grip Inc.?

The Pencil Grip, Inc. is a fun office and school supply company that offers several art and craft materials as well. For this review, our family received Magic Stix Washable Markers and Wonder Stix, and their Kwik Stix are great as well. We have used all three and it is difficult to choose my favorite!

What are Magic Stix Washable Markers?

The Magic Stix Washable Markers come in a pack of 24 beautiful and vibrant colors that are irritable to pull out and create with. With so many choices, my kids loved trying out new colors they had not seen in markers before. Plus, they dry so quickly that they don’t smear. Lines can be sharp and clear between the colors.

The Pencil Grip, Inc. said that they would not dry out even after 7 days without the cap. So we tried it out and it is really true! Check out the picture; you will notice that the color did not even fade over time.

And of course, the washability is a must for me! So we tried that too. With a little scrubbing, the marker came right out. What a shirt saver!

And they don’t have any strange odors that make some markers so stinky to use. And since they don’t dry out, they have vented safety caps.

What are Wonder Stix?

Our family also tried out the Wonder Stix. These come in bright and soft colors and will work on a chalkboards, white board, paper, glass, windows, wood, and cardboard. These versatile Stix are dust free, washable, and odorless. They twist up to sharpen.

We tried them out on chalkboards and I like them more than chalk! Chalk can get so dusty, but the Wonder Stix stayed put. Plus, they wiped clean with a paper towel.

When we used the Wonder Stix on the white board, I especially liked that they didn’t rub off or smear like other white board markers and crayons do. The Wonder Stix wiped of easily with a damp paper towel.

We even drew on the windows. That was fun! We decorated for Saint Valentine’s Day and now for Saint Patrick’s Day. The Stix wiped off easily with a damp paper towel. Easy peesy!

A short note about Kwik Stix

The Kwik Stix are solid tempera paint stix that take the mess out of painting. And wow are they fast drying, it only takes about 90 seconds and you are ready to keep going. Without giving up the paint-like finish, the Kwik Stix don’t need water or brushes. They are available in thick and thin sizes.

How did our family use the materials from The Pencil Grip, Inc?

We just love these materials. They are so clean to use, I bring them around with us often. Practice your spelling words on the chalkboard. Make beautiful cards for friends with the markers. Decorate your windows (my boys of course drew targets for Nerf guns). Before discovering the Kwik Stix, my youngest son did not get to use paints often. It is such a big process to get out all the paints, brushes, smocks, etc. that I just didn’t want to deal with it. But he loves using the Kwik Stix because he just gets them and paper out himself. Yea!

I teach a small class at our homeschool co-op, so I decided to use the Magic Stix for a craft in class. The kids loved them! I have one student who is allergic to many kinds of markers and paints, so she usually keeps gloves in her backpack, but she had no problem using the Magic Stix.

I am a Stix Fan Momma! I’m not going back to chalk, I don’t need to pull out all the messy paints again, and the Magic Stix markers are so beautiful and have so many color choices that they are my marker choice from now on.

One quick note about The Pencil Grip, Inc. customer service

As I was preparing to use the Magic Stix in my classroom, I needed more than one set. So I tried to order through Amazon at the beginning of Feburary, but they kept pushing the delivery date farther and farther away until it was into March. So I called The Pencil Grip, Inc. and they had a package in the mail to me that day and I received the materials the next business day. They were friendly and so helpful and understanding when I explained my perdiciment. It is difficult and rare to find amazing customer service like this, so a huge THANK YOU to The Pencil Grip, Inc. for their kindness and courtesy!
