I will admit this is one of the most unique pens I've owned. Has a really nice matte finish - just like the paper that wraps a crayon. My only problem with the pen is the size and weight. I am a fairly petite woman and my hands are I'd say average to slightly smaller than average. The size (width) and weight of this pen make it difficult for me to hold for a long period of time. If I'm in a meeting taking a lot of notes, this is not a pen that would work well for me. I also tried to replace out the ink with a smooth writing ball point cartridge I have from Levenger and the cartridges were not interchangeable, so I'm assuming I'll have to buy special replacement ink cartridges for this one due to the size of the barrel.

I was shocked to see this on your customer favorites. I didn't read the reviews but I had significant problems with this product. I believe I purchased it soon after you started to carry it. I was very excited to receive it because it is so cute. I brought it to work and it stopped working after a couple of days - literally. I called and immediately another one was shipped out to me - that one also stopped working after a couple of days. I was stunned and totally discouraged. It is very difficult for me at work to find the time to make the call again to customer service and I have not. A total disappointment and waste of money.

Comments about ACME Crayon Retractable Rollerball:

I have wanted this pen for a while, now the price was so great I had to have it! It is cute, has a surprising heft, and writes so smoothly!
I would like it a little longer, but overall a great purchase.

My favorite pen ever

By 

from Benicia, CA

Verified Buyer

Comments about ACME Crayon Retractable Rollerball:

I originally bought this pen as a gift for my daughter. She loved it so much I bought myself one. Recently, I bought myself a second one, so I can have one in my purse and one in my satchel.

I teach children poetry two days a week, and whenever I go, I bring my "crayon" pen. They all love it, and want to hold it, feel it, see how it writes. ("I thought it was a real crayon," is the most common comment.)

Great pen. Writes well, feels good in my hand.

Sensational!!

By 

from Marion TX

Comments about ACME Crayon Retractable Rollerball:

In all the hustle and bustle of this sometimes crazy world, a sense of humor always helps. I bought two of these pens for my daughter and her co-teacher for Christmas this year (different colors of course). I know they will appreciate the humor, especially as they spend their days teaching 3rd grade dual language.

Comments about ACME Crayon Retractable Rollerball:

I like to collect ink pens. And I love the uniqueness of this pen. I want to get it in all colors. The pen is a little heavy, but I like the thickness of the pen.

Much heavier than expected

By

Comments about ACME Crayon Retractable Rollerball:

This pen is very stylish and a great conversation piece! Additionally, the ink draws smooth and doesn't smear. However, it is MUCH heavier than I expected. To me, personally, it's just too heavy and, so, doesn't have a good "hand feel". I will be returning, but hope others have luck with it!

Bummer it leaks!

Comments about ACME Crayon Retractable Rollerball:

I wish I could recommend this pen; it is clever, makes people smile and feels good in my hand. Unfortunately, it now lives on my desk; even when ink-end-up in my shirt pocket, fully retracted, I ended up with ink on my fingers and blotches on my shirt. Too bad. It was a birthday gift and I love the idea of it. Maybe a ballpoint or "zero-gravity" cartridge would work better?

Comments about ACME Crayon Retractable Rollerball:

I had been admiring this pen for ages so I decided to buy it for myself as a cute birthday gift. I do not normally spend this much on a pen so I will admit I was worried that it would not live up to my expectations. Luckily it did! I love the look of this pen and I hope that someone actually thinks I am trying to sign documents with a crayon. It also has a lovely weight and writes beautifully. I am a fan of pens without clips, but be aware that it will roll around more for this reason.
