I did buy this set for a three-year-old, but both of us use the crayons. The color can be spread smoothly even on cheap paper, with fewer unexpected bumps and clots than Crayola wax crayons may have. The range of colors is great for a small set, and stray marks do come off well with a bit of water. (So far: painted wall, painted wood chair, veneer window blinds.) My child "likes" the thickness of the individual crayons: they haven't broken yet despite some intense use.

This bag is awesome, with secure stitching and well-designed pockets. I take it to work, sometimes with my 13" Thinkpad laptop wedged in, and then I pick up my child from daycare: Wise-Walker on back, toddler in an Ergo carrier on front. Thus the Wise-Walker serves as purse, diaper bag, and general carrier of small work items. It's slightly too narrow to zip around a letter-sized manila folder, but if the weather is good one can leave the zipper partly open. I love the size, regardless: it holds what I need, keeps my hands free, and discourages me from packing unnecessary things. The thoughtful little pocket for a transit card is exactly right.

I really like the semi-opaque white body. It has a slightly softer feel than the original Petit1, which was a hard plastic all over; this one is a bit friendlier to the touch. I ordered one without any ink cartridges, in hopes that my old Petit1 cartridges would work with it, and they do!

Verified Purchase
The Coleto body and the ten-color refill set are the only cost-effective way to use the excellent Hi-Tec-C ink and pen-tip. I love them. If only the refills came in some of the rarer colors (they're available only as standalone pens, but it's a waste of plastic...).

The ink is a pretty color, a pleasant mid-green. I confess I've no idea what "takoizu" denotes, though....

Verified Purchase
Well, for me this pen is definitely *not* better than the Hi-Tec-C. The ink seems a bit watery somehow, or perhaps I'm influenced by the unexpected color. For "emerald" I thought it'd be a bit darker.... It writes fairly smoothly, but I actually prefer the Hi-Tec-C's grip and nib.

Verified Purchase
It took me a moment to realize how to load this pen. Once I found the little flip-top cap and opened it, everything went smoothly. I like having two colors (and two different nib sizes!) available in the same barrel, and it's great to have a blue-black refill, which JetPens doesn't seem to carry for the regular Hi-Tec-C.

The ink is a pretty color, a pleasant mid-green. (The pic above is somewhat bluer than the ink itself.) I confess I've no idea what "takoizu" denotes, though....
