100 Mega Count Washable Marker Set

US Art Supply invited me to review their 100 Mega Count Washable Marker Set. Mega Set of 100 Long lasting and durable fine tip washable markers in vibrant and bold colors. Excellent for kids to use for writing, drawing, coloring and doodling. The vibrant inks do not smudge or bleed through most paper. Comes in a convenient organizer carrying case, so you can keep all your markers neatly organized and ready for use.

This 100 Mega Count Washable Marker Set comes with 50 different color shades. There are two markers for each color. These markers have a wide shade variance within each color. For instance there are 8 blue tones. The shade variance starts at a very dark blue and ends in a light baby blue. Some of the blues have more green and some are more of a true blue. You can see this same variety in the purple, pinks, reds, greens, etc. The colors with the least amount of shade variance are yellow and orange. While there’s less variety in these two colors there’s still enough variety for our needs.

These markers have a fine point tip. They are great for writing or fine details. We’ve not had any issues with the tips widening or fraying. These markers don’t bleed through standard paper. If you have thinner paper it might bleed. We buy our girls card-stock quality paper for their arts and crafts. These makers don’t bleed though card-stock quality. We do have some coloring books with thinner paper and while the color came though to the back of the page it didn’t bleed through to the pages behind it. Bleeding also depends on the child, if they hold the marker down in one spot excessively, like any marker, it will eventually bleed.

These markers wash off hands easily. My toddler is notorious for getting more ink on her hands than on the paper. We’ve have no issues removing the ink from her hands. Luckily she’s not colored any surfaces so I’ve not had to test them in that regard!

The only problem we’ve had with this set is with the handle on the carrying case. The handle had come unsnapped during shipping. It’s very easy to reassemble the handle but it has since come undone a few times. The plastic trays inside the carrying case really aren’t firm enough for repeat use with a toddler. I removed them from the case and I store the markers in the case loosely. The buttons on our case are firm and have not come loose or fallen off. That being said using the buttons isn’t as easy as it should be. I would like this better with Velcro buttons instead.
