I loved the idea of this product. Having a small marker seemed ingenious to me at first. The washable part is the TOP NOTCH thinking of this product. Any product that a child can use that will not stain their clothing is wonderful for me! Also to know that if she gets it on something else, like my carpet, it will come out easy enough. My complaint is that they are just way too small for my daughter to use...it does not fit comfortably in her hand for ease of use. The colors are bright and it does not smear too bad. I sometimes worry about the smearing when something is washable. We still use them for projects but they are not what I thought when I got them. My mind did not think of the fit to her hand only that they were small and that would be nice! So these markers are a great purchase for any child that can hold them comfortably, just not for us! So be creative if you get them and have fun!
