ACME Crayon Retractable Rollerball
Cute but leaks!
I was excited to get this pen because I thought it was SO CUTE! However, when I received it I was disappointed by how heavy it is and not balanced (like the Levenger's great True Writer pens!). But I decided that I would put it in my purse for occasional use. Bad idea. It leaked black ink all over the inside pocket of a very expensive Dooney & Burke handbag. Luckily, it is only on the inside & did not damage my checks or passport tbat were also in the pocket. If you get this pen, keep it on your desk in an upright position!

Beware the crayon that leaks
This pen writes perfectly, looks great, has a good, solid weight, and feels great in your hand as you write. It's also a great conversation starter, due to its novelty. Alas, its ink completely leaked out the second week I had it, even though the cartridge was fully retracted. Thankfully, I was wearing dark pants at the time, and the ink washed off easily with hydrogen peroxide. Much as I would like to, I cannot recommend this pen.

Awesome Crayon Pen
I have bought several of these and gave them as gifts to college students and an office administrator. They liked them so much that I finally bought a couple for me and boy am I glad that I did! They write wonderfully and are so cute. I've gotten compliments already. They are my best purchase ever!

Fun & Functional
Bought three, two were for friends and one for me. I received so many fun comments on mine. It worked well and fit my hand well. Only gave it a 4 on Function as would have liked a clip so that it wouldn't slip out of the pen loop on the Circa Junior.
Unfortunately it disappeared from the apartment I rented this past winter (2012-2013). Someone thought it would be as fun as I thought it was. Hope she enjoys it.

M and Her Crayon Pen
That Crayon Pen, an oxymoron?

My fingers forearmed!

Loved the look of this pen and had been wanting it for a while. Finally decided I would spend the money to get the fun look, BUT this pen does not write smoothly and it skips frequently. When starting to write, I could have pen to paper for more than two inches before the ink would flow. I really wanted this pen, but had to return it. Looks are great, but it still needs to work as a pen, especially at the price.

I love this pen. Received as a gift. I get so many comments when I use it. Being an art teacher, it's a cool pen to have. It works well, very sturdy. It will last a long time. Of course I have the pink pen, the prettiest color!

Love this pen!
I got this pen on a whim: I just thought it was fun. Now I find I use it for everything and I miss it if I leave home without it. Try it I'm sure you'll love it just as much as I do. It writes like a dream!!!

Love This Pen!
I was hesitant to purchase this pen based on some of the negative reviews, but I decided to take a chance knowing that I could always return it if I didn't like it. Well, I love it! It is well balanced and the ink flows smoothly--no skips or fading! I would recommend this pen to anyone who just wants something fun and different but offers excellent performance, too! The only negative to this pen is the price. I think it's a bit expensive, but I guess you have to pay for the Crayola name!

Fun and functional
Using this pen makes me feel like a kid writing with a crayon. It writes nicely. The only problem is that I lost the first one I bought and now have to buy another. I loved it so much that I couldn't be without it. The first refill that it came with didn't work well but the company was FABULOUS and sent me several additional refills immediately. BUY this pen you won't regret it!!
