Stabilo Cappi – Never lose a cap!

Product Review
(Daddy colours)

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.

The pen cap can be found everywhere in the house. Under the sofa seat, inside the pockets, in between the pages of the book or even in their school bags.

Pen caps MIA everywhere in the house...cant find them but at times reappear when u give up searching.

Me said...

No idea where they are. Sometimes never found.

The pen caps can be found everywhere in the house - under the sofa, under the bed, under the table, inside the toy boxes, inside the drawer, even under the washing machine or under the refrigerator.

Debra said...

They have gone to join the missing single socks and will probably reappear when you have thrown the marker away :)

The "tiny" pen caps (compared to the pen and the places where they can be found) can be at any place depending on where the kids used them. Can be in drawer, behind study desk, and even dustbin (wrapped up in used drawing paper they throw!). Sometimes, not only pen caps go missing! Sometimes, they misplace the whole pen uncapped, then you first found the cap and will have to frantically look for the pen so that you can save it from being dried up! At least now, with the caps intact in a bunch, a glance can tell you if any pen is missing, and you still have a grace of 24 hours to look for it without worrying it drying up!

It may sounds weird but I found the caps in the fridge!

Cherry said...

Either mixed in a boxful of toys or thrown in the bin by the maid.

Saroette said...

Jamie said...

Amirah Zain said...

The pen caps will be on my bed. Where my younger sister are doodling and drawing!

Clarice Tan said...

Strangely they will be found in places like underneath the sofa, in my handbag, makeup pouch, in a corner of the bed even! :)

WENDY TAY said...

most commonly left in between the pages of colouring/drawing/sketch books, and under/behind shelves. and we normally find them AFTER the pens have dried up. :/

Yippee said...

The caps could be under my bed, sofa, kitchen, in between books! In fact, it's almost everywhere in the house!

the missing pen caps have all mysteriously disappeared and probably lying comatose after dropping down from the 14th floor of my balcony.....

Wenli said...

They are practically everywhere! Places you can and cannot imagine.

the missing caps if found on the floor by my little girl will always end up in her hello kitty bag.(rainbowknows@yahoo.com.sg)

Cen-Lin Ting said...

Hee, now you said it, I realised I really don't know where the pen caps gone! I also noticed I actually changed to mostly push and click types of pens but for children’s writing materials I had throw quite a lot away ; (

Haha... one of those unsolvable mysteries of the household. Under the sofa, in the toybox, down the toilet bowl... who knows?
