Can't even begin to say how great we think these are.
They write on dry-erase boards beautifully, and wipe off easily with a damp rag.
If your student/child is asked to use dry-erase markers at school, these win hands-down.
No gross chemical smell
They can't dry out (no caps to leave off)
They'll last the whole year
**The sharpener is a little spendy AND it's dumb-plastic, but it should be a one-time purchase. I hate to say it, but YOU NEED THE SHARPENER - unless you already have an oversized sharpener (17mm opening).
