The ultimate in felt tip pens. This vast array of 50 comes in a handy jar to store away – what’s more, the pens themselves click and connect to each other for hours of model making fun and there’s no danger of any runaways! The fibre-tips themselves are designed to withstand enthusiastic use and the ink is water based made with non-toxic food dyes so if scribbles happen where they shouldn’t, it’ll wash out no problem. For ages 3 and over.
