Never seen before: creative people of all ages can now use the new GRIP Colour Magic crayons to trace two colour shades at once. Two easy steps to the ultimate in drawing fun: first draw your picture using the GRIP Colour Magic crayons. Then use the brush included to blend the brilliant colour pigments with water and – like magic – an additional colour shade will appear! The colour of the cap at the end of the pencil will tell you the shade. In total, there are 8 magical colour combinations, inviting you to discover the fascinating world of the magic pencil leads.

At the same time, the GRIP Colour Magic crayons also fulfill the highest functional quality requirements: their ergonomic triangular form and the patented soft-grip zone support the child's hand and thus result in confident, fatigue-free drawing from the very beginning. In addition, the magic colour pens are made from non-impregnated, untreated wood coated in environmentally compatible water-based varnish, which is more hygienic than unvarnished or partially varnished wooden pencils. This is a great advantage for small children, who tend to suck on pencils, or for nursery and primary schools, where pencils pass through many hands.

Like the tried and trusted Colour GRIP pencils, the GRIP Colour Magic range is a major component of the “Playing & Learning” range, which develops educationally meaningful and ergonomically adapted writing aids and drawing utensils for every phase of childhood, ensuring that children have fun while teaching them, through play, how to work with their hands.
