If you home school or have a home office, you are sure to have use for a dry erase board and markers. I know for the duration of 11 years I used one for my home school children from everything to spelling tests, to math homework and everything in between. For a busy executive like I have, a monthly dry erase board helps keep track of business meetings, deadlines, travel plans and more. So when I was asked to review Whitey Board Stick On Whiteboard and Markers, I had to try it. I will break it down into two groups, what I liked about each product and what I didn't care for, along with a sum up of the review in conclusion.
Writey Board Stick On Whiteboard and Markers is a blank, monthly dry erase board in a sense that it is a peel off sticky board. You simply peel it off, and apply it where you would love a monthly dry erase board. It does come with warnings to ensure if you have recently painted a surface within 30 days, it might remove the paint and to take caution before using. It also comes with 4 dry erase refillable markers, red, black, green and blue, chisel tips. This was depending on how you use it, you can get a broad or fine edge to your lettering.
Pros: Love the thickness of the dry erase board, if you can call it that, since it is a peel off. It is really study and I could see simply using thumb tacks instead of peeling it off and applying it to use it. Love the blank month and days, so I can simply update it depending on the month. It comes pre-packaged in a cute dry erase marker shape. The colors of the markers are vibrant and clear and don't smell as strong as your typical dry erase markers. The white board measures 2 feet by 3 feet.
Cons: Since it is a peel off and apply dry erase board, you have to be cautious on which surfaces you apply it to, as I mentioned above. Not sure how you might test it in a long term situation, to ensure there is no damage to the surface you apply it to. The markers leak. I was surprised when I opened the cap to the red one and it literally dripped all over the carpet, my jeans and fingers. Not what you want when using a refillable marker. I was pretty happy with the product until that happened. It does wash off easily enough and haven't washed my jeans to see if the red dye comes out since I just tried it today. Since this applies to a surface, caution must be used to ensure you don't wipe off the markers onto the wall when erasing the ink.
Overall, based on the markers, I would rate this product overall a 3 out of 5 stars. I would keep the Writey Board Monthly Calendar and use another set of dry erase markers that don't leak. If you are using them with younger children, these could become a bigger mess than it is worth. I would avoid using these for younger children due to all the precautions mentioned above. I received Writey Board Stick On Whiteboard and Markers compliments of Omni-Deals and Writey Board for my honest review. I did not receive any monetary compensation aside from a Writey Board and Markers to try in exchange for my personal and unbiased review.
