5.0 out of 5 stars 25+ yrs old & still scented!, February 17, 2015
This review is from: Mr. Sketch Scented Markers, Chisel Tip, Assorted Colors, 12-Count (Office Product)
I thought some would get a kick out of knowing that my 25+ year old Mr. Sketch markers are still going strong - still moist & still have their scents! I bought several sets when I taught nursery school in the late 80's-early 90's & since then, they've been stored in our attic (hot in summer/frigid in winter). I recently got them out for our 5 yr old grandson & we sorted out the dried out ones (only dry because tops not on tightly) . I have boxes & boxes of new markers & crayons, yet these are the favorites. Brilliant idea, Mr. Sketch! No clue why our attic weather fluctuations didn't destroy them. So for any doubters….this is for you!

3.0 out of 5 stars Pros and cons, August 18, 2017
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I was really excited to get these! I'm a college student and am always looking for better exciting ways to help when studying. And studies show heightening your senses can be very beneficial.

Pros:
Very bright
About 5 of the 6 smell pretty good

Cons
they are a bit darker than I would prefer the pigmentation is more like markers vs. highlighters

They bleed more than the average highlighter (although other reviews say this does go away after a couple uses I will update if I find this to be true)

Idk why I expected the smell to be more potent when applying to the paper but it was more like I had to put my nose up to it

This is my first initial impression. I will update after more uses

The pics I attached compare the mr.sketch highlighters on the LEFT and sharpie highlights on the RIGHT
So you can see how much darker they are and I flipped the page over so you can see the differences in bleeding

5.0 out of 5 stars HELPFUL FOR MAKING FLASHCARDS AND WRITING NOTES IN COLLEGE., April 14, 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This is a great product. I use these markers as well as the other Mr. Sketch for note taking in my college classes. I know, a college student using scented markers. They are great as they maintain their "juice" for a long time, as well as the scent. I have had people ask me why they smell popcorn and then demand they smell the rest of the Mr. Sketch Markers.
Light blue- smells like blue raspberry, I like this one personally. This was voted as the best by the commuter lounge people
Bright yellow- buttered popcorn, a second favorite. Another favorite for the commuters.
yellow- orange- nachos. This does not smell like nachos. Amazingly, the guys thought it smelled good.
Light- brown- root beer. Was okay,
Dark brown- chocolate mint, was okay however, not the best. I think the Mr.Sketch people should have made this light green as mint-chip ice cream ( which is available at some movie theaters for a God-awful price), than brown
Pink- candy, I think it... Read more
