I’m Lovin’ It – Frixion Markers

I’m linking up with Covered in Glitter and Glue for What I’m Loving Wednesday.


Some other bloggers mentioned they loved using Frixion erasable gel pens so I checked them out.  All I could find locally was a 2 pack of black.  I snatched them up because I knew if I loved the pens I could get color ones from Amazon.  Amazon has everything!

I fell in love with these pens!  So, I hoped onto Amazon to order some in pretty colors.  Low and behold, Pilot also makes Frixion markers and color pencils!!  Who knew?! This is what I ended up buying.


They are the cheapest pens and markers around but they are definitely cool!  I tend to make mistakes (A LOT!) so having pens and markers that really erase is worth the expense.


Frixion markers work great in planners. 


Here’s how my planner looked after I finished erasing.  Dang – these markers erase well!!



In addition to using my new markers in my planner, I plan on using them in my interactive notebooks.  They are bright, erasable, and don’t bleed.  Check out this math entry:


Ooops. No biggie!




Here are some quick links if you want to go check out these markers for yourself.  These picture links will take you to Amazon.


Is anyone else in love with these pens?

UPDATE -
The Frixion pens and markers have built-in erasers on the caps that never wear down.  Gotta love that!  However, I did a little experiment this morning to find out if any eraser would work.  The short answer is yes!  However, I found out that some erasers work better than others.  If you're interested, I can do another post to show (with pictures!) the results of my eraser experiment.

  2. I had just a blue and black of these last year and I too, loved them! I've forgotten about them, so now they're going in my shopping cart! My new planner should be arriving in the next couple of days, so I should have these to go with it!!! Thanks for the reminder!!

  3. I've been thinking about getting those, too.

    I have a strange question. Can you erase them with any eraser or only the one that comes with it? (I have a latex allergy and have wondered if I could use a latex free eraser with them.)

  4. Oh my gosh, I want to buy those markers, but I am hesitant to spend $16 after the exorbitant amount I've already spent!! :)

  5. I think I am going to need those markers. I am always making mistakes, but I like to use pen when doing examples of things with the kids because it shows up better on the ELMO. This could be the solution I have been looking for. I'm stoked! Thanks for posting about them and I would be interested in your eraser experiment. :)
