Educational Insights ~Smens~ Review and Giveaway

EIlogo
*There were 261 entries. The winner is Tina.
Thank you for entering*

Do you remember having things like smelly stickers and markers growing up? I certainly do and these pens I received from Educational Insights reminds me of them. These are actually called Smens which is smelly and pens put together (I bet you already figured that out =)). There are also smencils available as well.

The Smens come in a set of 10 or 50. I was sent the set of 10 gourmet scented pens which includes the scents:
  • Red Licorice
  • Creamsicle
  • Aloha
  • Mystery Scent
  • Banana FoFana
  • Mocha
  • Passion Fruit
  • Ninja Berry
  • Pink Lemonade
  • Black Licorice

Not only are these pens super cool but they are environmentally friendly too! They are made from recycled newspapers and biodegradable plastic. Each pen comes in its own little tube to insure the scents last at least 2 years.

We had a lot of fun guessing the different scents when this set arrived. In fact, my boyfriend was using a pen that was sitting on the desk when he said, “Wow! Something smells good!”. He started sniffing around trying to figure out what it was. I knew that it was a Smen he was using but I was laughing so hard it took me a while to tell him that. Needless to say he was impressed.

Some of the scents are ones that I do not particularly care for, but those could be used as a gift if you know someone that might love that scent. All of these pens write in black ink but I would personally love if they wrote in the same color as as their packaging!  How cool would that be?

  3. I enjoyed following the whole entry, I always thought one of the main things to count when you write a blog is learning how to complement the ideas with images, that's exploiting at the maximum the possibilities of a ciber-space! Good work on this entry!
