Pip-squeaks Mix 'Ems markers let you mix and blend tons of colours for unique creations every time!
Simply cap any marker to any coloured cap, press the button (the longer you hold it, the more it will blend) and watch the colours mix and blend in the mixing chamber.
To Blend: After using the mixing chamber, hold the marker at a 90 degree angle and draw for colour fades.
To Mix: After using the mixing chamber, hold the marker at a 45 degree angle and draw for multi-coloured stripes.
Pip-squeaks Mix 'Ems caps work with any broad-tip Pip-squeaks markers!
My 3 year old was gifted some of these for her birthday, and at first i was a bit disappointed, as they are hard to click together and do the colour mixing by pushing the button on the end, however, in just a couple of weeks, she has mastered the knack, and they are fantastic! She has loved the colour blend and that the markers do "cool rainbows".
They can handle having the lids left off for a little while (max 1 hr) then they are a little dry, but that is realistically the same as most felts! I found that reading the instructions on "how to" helped - rather than just clicking them together and pushing the button - there is an easier way!
I have since purchased more packs as presents for friends children, and they have adored them as well! I like that they have lots of colours and the neat rainbow/mixing feature makes them a little more special!
i bought these for my 3 and a half year old daughter, as she loves drawing quite regularly.
I was disappointed with this product, as the marker pens were hard for her to switch and join together, and even harder to push the button at the end to do the crazy mixing blend magic.
She did eventually get the hang of this, but alas, the marker pens just did not last long at all, they worked like cheap $2 shop marker pens, and for the amount i paid for them at the post shop, i feel i wasted my money.
Not easy to use. Did not last long. Disappointed.
these were a really cool arts and craft tool for the kids. they spent the whole afternoon playing with them and coming up with every possible combination they could imagine and tried to draw a picture that suited the mixes. needless to say there were a lot of dragons and fairies in the mix. they proved very simple to use for special drawing effects. the instructions are very easy to master if you read them carefully and the results were very pleasing for the kids. the peace and quiet they created was very pleasing for the adults. they seem to last for ages because even though the kids left them lying around with their lids off for up to half an hour they were still ready to go anytime they were picked up. a great product and great value for money.
