*I was not paid for this review! I received this product free of charge for my honest opinion!
My six year old son loves drawing and doing other crafts. I call him my little Picasso because he's always working on an art project. We have a few chalkboards that we made ourselves with chalkboard paint, the largest one is inside his playhouse in the backyard. He's constantly playing in his playhouse, but sometimes runs out of stuff to do. I received these awesome Vellostar liquid chalk markers, and they are amazing!
The liquid chalk markers came in a nice compact box that would be perfect for gifting. They came in a range of eight colors - red, green, white, blue, yellow, orange, purple and pink. When you first get the markers out of the box, the tips are dry and you must activate them first. The box suggests to depress the tip while holding upright and to shake the marker for 30 seconds with the lid on. Well, that didn't really work. I got way better results just by pressing the tip down onto a hard surface until the chalk bled into the tip fully.
The markers were amazingly bright and easy to use. Each color showed up perfectly and absolutely bold. They were very easy to use and drew very well and smooth, with no skipping of the chalk. It really was just like drawing with markers on his chalkboard! The markers have nice clean-edged chisel tips which are fully reversible to bullet tips for fine detailing. The pack also comes with 4 replacement tips in case your kid gets a little zesty and grinds them into the chalkboard too hard. The markers are eco-friendly, completely child-safe, non-toxic, acid-free and has almost no odor. I can happily trust my son to play alone with these without worrying.
The markers are very useful to use on other surfaces besides chalkboards too! They also work on glass, metal, ceramics, LED boards, whiteboards and basically any other non-porous surface. Cleanup is very easy, it suggests cleaning with a wet cloth. I used a cloth that I soaked with a little bit of green cleaning solution, and it came of without leaving a trace. I tried wiping some off with my finger, and it smeared, but I was able to wipe most off. If your kid gets them all over their clothes, never fear, they are completely washable!
I absolutely love how bright and vibrant these chalk markers are and they are so easy to use! My six year old son absolutely had a blast drawing with them, and I love feeling that they're safe and how easily they cleaned up!
