My Thoughts…

I was given the opportunity to try out the following products from Zebra Pen:

producto_mechanical_cadoozles_pack_0Don’t let how the Cadoozles Mechanical Pencils look fool you, these in fact look exactly like your regular no 2 style pencil but they aren’t!   These mechanical pencils are great for me because no matter how hard I try to stay organized, I always end up misplacing my pencil sharpener! I love that these require no sharpening whatsoever!  I am a fan of Cadoozles Mechanical Pencils because they are cute and reusable.

I’ve had no problem with the lead pushing in when I write or falling out which is an issue I have had with other brands of mechanical pencils.The only issue that I can find with the  Cadoozles is that they may not be the right size for everyone. I am petite and have smaller hands than most so these are the perfect fit for me but may not be for those with larger hands.

producto_markers_zazzle_b_pack_0Zazzle Brights are the best highlighters that I’ve ever used!These spiffy little gadgets come in a pack of 10 and include a free case to keep them all together! The highlighting ink is made from a water based pigment and offered in every color of the rainbow!

I like the fact that Zazzle Brights have a translucent barrel so you’ll know when you are getting low on highlighting ink and when you’ll be needing to get another set.

I’ve been using these to highlight important dates in my planners as well as for highlighting verses and quotes that stand out to me.  I like that I can color code with all the available colors and shades in the 10 pack I was sent.  I’ll definitely be getting more when I need them!

producto_ball_point_z1_imgZebra Pen specially sent my husband the Z-1 Retractable Ball Point Pen after learning that he is a fictional writer whom carries a mole skin notebook around to write down ideas on the fly. Here are my husbands thoughts on the pen he was sent…

I really like the pen. It clips well in my pocket where I keep my notebook. When I write it doesn’t smudge and leaves nice sharp lines so I can read my crappy handwriting. I’ve used other similar finer point pens and they left more excess ink on the page.  The Zebra did not. That is a bonus to keeping the pages cleaner and the writing easier to read.

Overall my husband and I are quite pleased with Zebra Pen and will be looking to purchase many of their great  writing product in the future!
