I don’t know about you but in our house, the one thing that absolutely irks me (and the wifey) is when things go missing on a regular basis. And at the top of the list are elastic hair bands and bags of potato chips. Okay, so the latter can be attributed to the wifey but for the elusive hair bands, I can never find them until it is often too late – the hair bands are all dusty and we would have bought new ones by then.
Oh, and did I mention pen caps?
If you have children at home, you will know that when they get carried away with drawing with their marker pens, many of those pens have died from the lost lid of dryness. The pen caps ALWAYS get lost somewhere! I don't really know where where they go - maybe an imp picks them up, who knows?
But now, thanks to Stabilo's Cappi marker pens range, my woes are a thing of the past!
The product concept which distinguishes the Cappi marker pens from all other fibre tip pens on the market can be clearly attributed to this red ring that comes with the markers.
The caps of the marker pens can be simply strung together in a clever ring, which makes losing them very difficult.
With the help of the ring, all pens connected and hung on the ring. A ridiculously simple idea, but a very useful one.
Did you notice the unusual tube shape that the pens come in? That's done on purpose, so that the pens would not roll away onto the floor and can be easily picked up!
Grip-wise, the ergonomic grip zone is something that both Ash and Ayd have grown accustomed to when it comes to writing equipment from Stabilo. The pens fit perfectly to the delicate hands of children, making writing or colouring an even more comfortable prospect.
The amazing thing about the pens is even if the little people do forget to cap the marker pens, parents will be relieved to know that the pens can be left uncapped for 24 hours without drying out!
Oh, and the ink is washable too... something which is a must-have for parents I think.
And not only are the pens great for indoors, they are sensational for outdoor use as well. By having the pens all strung together means that they can be stored easily in the wifey's bag and fished out in ONE complete bunch!
Definitely an ideal set of markers to bring to the restaurants and travelling.
A pack of Stabilo Cappi Fibre-tip Markers (12 colours) is retailing for S$10.20 at Stabilo's online store, or S$10.90 in retail stores.
