PRODUCT: STABILO EASYoriginal Pens (www.stabilo.com)Stabilo Easyoriginal

DESCRIPTION: A range of ergonomic rollerball (0.8mm tip) pens for children learning to write, in separate left-handed and right-handed designs. Features include curved barrel design with non-slip grip zone, large protective cap and name label. Line thickness 0.5mm. Includes 3 x exchangeable blue ink refill cartridges, each with new tip. Available in a variety of two-tone barrel designs, with three available writing colours including royal blue erasable ink, or permanent black or red ink. Suitable for children aged 6 years upwards.

GOOD POINTS: The EASYorginal pen from STABILO is the perfect tool for school aged children who are learning to write, and is a great alternative to the traditional fountain pen. 

The pen is very sleek in its appearance and comes in some wonderfully vibrant two-tone colour combinations which young children will love. It is a durable rollerball pen with a fine 0.5mm line width and easy to use non-scratchy tip, and it has several specifically designed ergonomic features to make it really child friendly.

For starters, the pen is the first of its kind to have two separate versions especially geared towards left hand and right hand users; a unique non-slip grip area contains special finger grooves which are positioned slightly differently dependant on the user's preferences, and are really effective at encouraging a optimum position for practising handwriting. This, along with its curved flattened design makes it very comfortable to hold and also prevents the pen from rolling off surfaces. In addition, a large secure removable cap protects the tip when not being used, and the underside of the pen's 'tail' contains a space for a name tag to be added - three labels are included.

The EASYoriginal comes with three royal blue ink cartridges (note that this ink is erasable using ink eradicator - not included) and, unlike traditional fountain pen refills, each of these refills has a new tip which reduces blotting, mess and scratching, and allows for consistent ink delivery. This also means that you should never have to buy another EasyOriginal pen again - just the refills! The refills are very easy to insert - simply unscrew the 'tail', take the top off the refill cartridge, drop the cartridge into the barrel and screw the pen back together. 

In our opinion, the EASYoriginal is a really unique rollerball with some well-designed features to cater perfectly for children's handwriting needs.

BAD POINTS: Quite expensive for a pen, but a few cartridges are included in the price, and once you have bought the pen you will only need to account for the cost of the refill cartridges.

PRICE: £6.99 each
