Review of Crayola's Window Markers

As mentioned in my previous post, I bought some new art supplies for the little artist to let her experience different ways of creating a piece of art.

This is the first of the five products I'll be reviewing - Crayola's Window Mega Markers:


I bought my products from a distributor so the price is slightly lower than retail prices but I had to go through much frustration just trying to get the lady to confirm my orders among many other issues, so perhaps you might find it more worthwhile to just buy it at retail price ($11). :P 

I had initially wanted the 8-pc set but it was out of stock so I had to settle for the 4pc set which features mega markers. It's bulkier (the part where you grip is about 2.2cm in diameter) but I think the thickness of the marker itself is quite satisfactory (about 1.3cm) - you can get nice thick defined lines on the glass. They work well on glass surfaces so if you don't have full-height windows for your tot to doodle on, your glass coffee table or mirror would work too. :P

Washable? Yes, very. :) Just wipe the marks off with a damp cloth (followed by a dry paper towel) - even Alicia can do it! - and she derived much pleasure from doing that on top of the doodling :) Don't leave the marks on the surfaces for too long though as they may not be as easily cleaned off and may require several times of wiping. During the doodling, a bit got onto my curtain but it was easily removed with soap and water... phew.

The packaging of the product says it contains small parts and is not suitable for kids below 36mths but I really don't see any small parts at all and I think as long as your kid's not mouthing things anymore, there is no harm in letting her use the markers.

I'm very satisfied with the product and I'm sure Alicia is too!

Some shots of my tot enjoying the window markers:









Checking out the colour and naming it before doodling


After she got comfortable using the markers, she started to doodle on EVERY window panel 


Being responsible for her doodling :P

  1. Hi, just got to see your blog and like what i see! My second girl is about your gal's age, (yr 2008 baby). My house also has full length window, will prob consider buying those markers to let the gals have window doodle fun too! How about the walls, does the ink come off from the walls?

  2. Hi O Tulip Mama, glad you popped by and joined Simply Mommie. :)

    She hasn't doodled on the wall so I'm really not sure about that but it should come off, I believe, with some soap and water, provided u clean it off immediately.
