Bad Markers

Saturday, December 11, 2010
I'm not fully sold on the name of this product.  From the reviews I got from CJ and Jake, this marker set was not a blast:

CJ's criticism was a little more bold than mine:

Although Dustin Hoffman parlayed his use of this simple word when describing K-mart in the movie, "Rainman" to a best actor award, I wasn't crazy about the boys' liberal use of "sucks."  But in this case, I think it was appropriate.

Now I'll be the first to admit that Jake can be rough with any coloring products - crayons, markers, paint, chalk, yogurt, jello, etc, but it seemed like no time at all before these marker tips frayed and were practically useless.  Anyway, we decided to make this whole experience a parenting moment and show the boys that you can do something about poor quality.  We wrote a letter to the company.  Lo and behold, they mailed us a brand new set of markers.  The boys were impressed.  Good on you, Color Loco.

Hopefully this blog post didn't su... never mind.
