About me: I know my reviews are not as exceptional as some of you lovely members but I was a little surprised by the premium fund payout this month, it seemed very poor.

I bought this pack of pens to write Christmas cards with and to have my grandchildren get creative with.

You get 12 in the packet so a good range of colours although you get 2 silver and 2 gold and I must admit the red and orange are very, very similar so are almost the same anyway!

The colours are bold and bright so they will brighten up your Christmas cards or drawings that you're making.

The pens are long and thin so not really suitable for very young children as they will find it hard to hold these properly. My three year old granddaughter can just about hold these well enough to draw but the nibs are very thin and scratchy if you don't hold them upright so really they are best for older children and adults.

The ink comes out the colour of the lid and the glitter is also this colour but with tiny bits of silver in too. It's very, very fine glitter so it's just enough to catch the light. There isn't lots of glitter so don't expect it to be overly sparkly but it is more subtle which I actually like. Sometimes the ink is very slow at coming out as it's gel and so you could write something and find that it is hasn't come out properly which can be a little frustrating.

These pens are not the best, I have used better but for making things look a bit more interesting and glittery then they are okay but just don't expect anything outstanding from them.

They wash off hands easily too and what I have noticed is they are very durable- we have done lots of drawing and colouring with these and they still look as though they are full so I imagine these will last a long time.
