Sargent Art White Board Crayons {Review}


This product was another one I chose as part of the CSN offer I recently accepted. Unfortunately, my review of this product is not a positive one. (This will be my only negative review of the products I received.)

Let me start by first saying that Brynne will love these when she is wanting to draw on the white board. They are fun crayons that do wipe off (with some work) and she can do some creative artwork with them.

For me, however, I would not use them for school work. They did not write as smoothlly as dry erase markers.

This is a sentence dictated by Brynne. The top one in green is with an Expo marker. The bottom one in blue is with a white board crayon being reviewed today.

And, erasing them was too much work!

Wiping a white board eraser down the sentences one time.
Rubbing the white board crayon with an eraser several times.
Wiping across it one time with a paper towel.
Residue left after erasing "completely" with a paper towel.

When I am working on the white board, I need to be able to write quickly and erase quickly to move on to the next thing.

I would not buy these crayons again.
