For Your Little Artist

When it comes to coloring there are no rules. Give kids a blank piece of paper and something to doodle with and watch them express themselves – no matter their artistic skills or age. Chameleon Kidz is adding a new twist to childhood coloring. Say hello to the return of the Blendy Pens, markers that offer a colorful palette with the stroke of a single pen! The results are stunning single-color gradations without changing markers.

We all know what happens when you add yellow to green. But imagine the result when strokes of yellow follow orange and then red without switching colored markers! That’s the beauty of The Original Blendy series, popular a dozen years ago. They are making a big return to store shelves in Q4 and 2018 with Blendy Pens Jumbo Kit (24 markers), Large Kit (20 markers), Small Kit (8 markers) and Stationery Set (6 markers).

Blendy Pens work like the Chameleon system so now kids as young as four years old can color with depth and dimension, shadows, highlights and shading. The results are simply striking. And very important, the markers are washable!

As their YouTube video shows, boys and girls put any two Blendy Pens into the fusion chamber. Two single colors will create a cool color combination.

Inside the first of a series of kits are not just Blendy Pens but stencils, posters and a unique Blendy airbrush for artistic expression in a whole new dimension.

Blendy Pens are a hit in our household, and my girls have been using them several times a day to color the posters that came with the kit as well as on plain paper to shade in their own drawings. The Blendy Airbrush has also been really popular. Did you know paper towels are a great surface for Blendy Airbrush creations? According to my girls it is, but what do I know – they’re the artists!

Now the important news: where to find. In Canada, you can currently only order Blendy Pens online through which is in USD and ships from the US. BUT..BUT! Big news – as of mid-November, you should be able to find Blendy Pens in Canada at Michaels stores! I sure hope so, because we’re definitely going to be using them a lot this winter (and I think they’ll make great gifts not only for Christmas but birthday parties too!)

One of our readers is going to win a Blendy Pens Jumbo Kit (Kit contains: 24 Blendy Pens, 12 Color Fusion Chambers, 10 Magic Reveal Posters and 1 Blendy Pen Airbrush.)
