Chalkola Chalk Markers Review & Giveaway

Have you ever thought how amazing it would be to have chalk that is as easy to use and intense in colour as markers? Well, this day has arrived…

Chalkola markers work just like regular markers but after drying out they look like chalk. They also come in wide selection of shades and are easy to remove from most surfaces using wet sponge or a wipe.

Chalkola chalkboard markers can be used on chalkboards, whiteboards, glass, ceramic, just to mention some of the uses.

My girls and I we have tried jumbo 15 mm Chalkola markers  (£14.90 per pack of 8) and set of 21 Chalkola markers (£16.90) including 15 chalk pens + 6 metallic markers (£16.90) or various project around the house and we loved how all of them turned out, without exceptions.

We had lots of fun with those markers decorating blackboards, whiteboards, mugs and even using some of the metallic markers on jars with sweets. They have so many uses (!)

We were very positively surprised with quality and ease of use of those Chalkola pens. They are absolutely must have at home and we will be definitely working with them to decorate other things shortly. I have feeling they will become permanent gadget in our house…

My older daughter loves writing and drawing and she created those doodles for her heart shaped chalkboard to hang on the wall.

And the best part is the fact she can wash it off and make brand new artwork whenever she wishes… so useful especially for kids and teenagers who get bored with things pretty easily.

Chalkola markers should be used on non porous surfaces like chalkboard, whiteboards, glass, plastic or windows. Porous surfaces can absorb the liquid chalk therefore they are not suitable as makers may be difficult to completely erase them.

Chalkola markers are non toxic, child safe, water based and wash off from clothes.

We have also special 15% discount for our readers on all Chalkola products (including set of 21 markers and jumbo 15 mm markers), simply use the COUPON CODE: 15OFFSTR at the checkout.
