My Kids Love New Expo Washable Markers

Submitted by on May 13, 2010 – 6:10 pmNo Comment

Every time we bring new office supplies into our office in Plano, the kids think they are just for them. I have to hide my favorite pens, especially Sharpies and my Expo markers for the white boards. It never fails that on a Monday morning as I am preparing for our weekly sales meeting, I end up searching every office looking for markers that still write. The kids’ zone, as we call the space set aside just for the kids (with their own bulletin board, white board, t.v. and computer of course,) is full of Expo Markers, most of which have smooshed tips and little ink, because the girls love to play school, color and generally use up lots of ink!

I don’t begrudge their creativity, in fact, I encourage it, when it doesn’t affect my ability to get my work done. So don’t tell the kids, but I have a secret stash of Expo Markers hidden in the conference room, up high and out of their reach, along with a new eraser and some awesome spray, also made by Expo, that makes my old white boards look like new. I did ask them to test out the new markers to see what they thought. Here’s a picture of the white board they created (at no urging from me, but they seemed to grasp the nature of shameless self-promotion quite naturally!)

I grew up in the age of chalkboards and thinking colored chalk was amazing fun. I don’t miss the dust, the banging of erasers or the screeching of nails (cover your ears!). I love white boards and I love Expo brand markers. So you can imagine my glee and my greed when they sent me a box full of markers to share and try out. They have created a new set of WASHABLE, yes you read that right, WASHABLE markers for whiteboards in brilliant, neon colors. My daughter was ripping them out of my hands before I could take them out of the box!

Yes, they really do work. The colors are bright but show up great and they wash right off of clothes, hands and little faces. Plus, they are low odor which is a huge bonus! These are a great addition to any moms craft box or educational tool box. If you homeschool your kids or just have big white boards in your kitchen like I do, you will love to have a set of these awesome markers!
