My First Crayola Washable Markers

If you are a regular reader you may have noticed that we are hosting a My First Crayola Twitter Party on Monday 10th June from 8 till 9.30pm, if you are free come join us. #myfirstcrayolaparty
To be able to tell you all about My First Crayola I have been sent a selection of Crayola's My First Range to try out.

You can read our review of the My First Crayola Palm Grip Washable Markers My First Crayola Colour and Flip Book, My First Crayola Colouring and Sticker booksMy First Crayola Musical Rub-Art Station or read our review of the My First Crayola Washable Markers.

The My First Crayola Washable Markers I think are a must for any child. The markers are easy for a toddler to hold, they come with a rounded tip which gives your child more coverage than a thin nib. In our set we got 8 bold, bright colour that are just the tool needed to colour in all those lovely pictures, not only did I mention they are washable?. Now I know when ever I see washable I do think "yeah right" to myself however on this occasion I was proven wrong. 
I left my daughter in the care of my mother in law & gave her the markers and a book to keep her amused as I nipped out. On my return I discovered that they both had a fun time & some how my daughters top was covered in colour! I wondered how much stain remover would be needed to get the top back to just one colour. Then I thought I would put the washable part to the test, my mother in law who is my stain guru looked at me and said "I didn't like that top anyway" which makes me think she helped to colour it in. 
In the washer it went on a standard wash with no stain remover, I waited patiently for the cycle to end and to my surprise it washed out, every single mark had gone. I smugly informed my mother in law that she will see her grand daughter in said top again in the near future! I also discovered my beige sofa had a few colour marks on too, I quickly jumped up in a panic and my mother in law said "don't worry just give it a wipe with a damp cloth and it comes off, what else did they get up to whilst I was away?  
I have now learn't not to automatically think yeah right when I next see a product that claims to be washable because on this occasion Crayola Markers really are washable. 

I was sent a pack of My First Crayola Washable Markers, I was not required to review these but have done so because I think they are brilliant.
