Fruit-Scented Markers


Four years ago it was Smencils ("gourmet-scented pencils made from recycled newspapers") and now comes this variant in the marker space.

From websites: "Green smells like mint, Orange smells like an orange, Yellow like lemon, etc. The scent makes it easier to recognize the color and offers an excellent learning tool for children."

What? The black marker was my favorite!

Like others who have commented, Mr. Sketch is ancient. I think it's cool that they've made a comeback.

What is old will be new again....

Same here. We had the scented Mr. Sketch markers way back in elementary school in the 80s. They usually dried out very quickly because we'd leave the caps off to smell them all the time. Except for the black marker. It smelled like licorice and nobody really liked it.

My favorite part of elementary school. The cool kids all had their own set of these...

Mr Sketch is ancient! I had these when I was a kid (hint: not a short time ago)
