This has been a very fun review for us! We have been using the Kwik Stix 12 Pack from The Pencil Grip, Inc. I am going to tell you right now, this is as far as I can remember during my time on the Review Crew, the very first time that when I opened a box with a review product in it straight from the mail, I had two kids quite literally attempting to pull it right out of my hands immediately, lol!
Of all four of my boys, the two who have really been the most interested so far have been “The Artist” and “Mr. Loquacious”, the aforementioned children who attempted to rip THIS
directly out of my hands, immediately after I opened the shipping box and they saw the following:
It was too funny! I had to make them let go, just so that **I* could take a look at it!
I’ll be honest, I had my doubts about the quick dry claims.
I was worried enough that I considered putting newspaper down on my kitchen table before allowing them to use them, but they got ahead of me. “The Artist” used some pages out of his sketch book:
And “Mr. Loquacious” used a pad of newsprint that I had purchased from a scrapbook store which was going out of business.
“Mr. Loquacious” did a different picture a while back, but wouldn’t let me use it. He wants me to let The Pencil Grip, Inc. know that he wants them to make these in a way that would allow for detail work, lol! However, since he’s stuck in the house after an injury, he got the Kwik Stix out and did this picture for the review. 🙂
By the way, it did not matter one bit whether or not I put down paper first, these Kwik Stix truly do dry super fast, and they did not bleed onto the back side of either kind of paper! How cool is that?
As you may have noticed in the shipping package above, The Pencil Grip, Inc. also included a sample Kwik Stix, as well as a sample pencil grip. My eldest, “The Batman” is my one child who has the most difficulty with writing and printing, because of his disabilities. He asked me if HE could use it, and review it for me so I would know from him how well it works.
“The Batman” is left handed like me, as you can see. Now, you can see in the picture how he needs to hold a writing utensil. The instructions for the pencil grip said to use it with the thumb on the letter L for left handed writers, and the thumb on the R for right handed writers. Unfortunately, “The Batman” had a lot of trouble using it with those instructions, however. He needed to reverse it, and put his left thumb on the letter R. It seems to work very well for him that way!
We are VERY pleased with this product, and think you would be as well, but don’t take my word for it, go along over and read what the other Crew Review members had to say! Just click the banner below, and it will take you to all of the reviews!
