Crayola Window FX Marker

Crayola Window FX Marker

These markers are designed for writing on any glass surface (mirrors, windows, etc.), and come in eight colors: Window White, Radiant Rose, Opaque Orange, Sunny Yellow, Vivid Blue, Glistening Green, Smoky Slate, and Shady Brown. They are packaged in a re-sealable plastic pouch for storage, and each has the same size and shape as traditional Crayola markers.

There are two primary things that make these markers great. First, adults will find them to be incredibly useful. They are great for leaving reminders, grocery lists, or roommate correspondence on surfaces where you are guaranteed to look before you leave the house. For once, the mirror can remind us of something we need to be reminded of!

The second thing that makes these markers great, is how fun they are for young people. Coloring by itself is great, but now kids can color on surfaces normally forbidden from their artistic tendencies. Not only does it keep them entertained, but let them do their math homework on the coffee table-literally!

The colors are surprisingly opaque, though not as bright as traditional Crayola markers, and will fade with time and direct sunlight. Unfortunately, the colors don't mix, either. The package recommends avoiding humid places such as bathrooms, but only because you risk having the ink run and stain something that is not glass. Clean up is very easy: either scrub when dry or wipe when the ink is still wet.
