Write it in Red with Bic 4-Color Ballpoint Pen Giveaway 2/14

 I recently was given the opportunity to review one of these pens, and my first thought was "I had no idea they still made these pens!"  You see, when I was a little girl (back in caveman days if you ask my children) I used to love to go visit my Auntie and Uncle's house across town for a week every year, and I remember what great times we had at her house playing games.  One game in particular required writing down information, and we always used a Bic 4-Color Ballpoint Pen to write with.  I am a little unsure as to why this pen is such a vivid and fond memory in my mind, but that pen is always forefront in my mind.


I recall that the pen wasn't always reliable back in the day, and we often had to scribble on a separate piece of paper to get whatever color we wanted to use working so I was curious to see how well today's version works.

Pen Features:

  • Blue, Black, Red or Green Ink
  • Medium Point
  • Refillable, so better for the environment
I have to admit I was dreading writing my New Year's Resolutions this year, but this pen made it a more colorful task!  Of course, I had to use all four colors as I was writing my thoughts down, and here is what my real life experience was using this pen!

First of all, all four of the colors worked right away-no need for scribbling on a piece of paper.  Secondly, there is no sticking when switching from one color to the next.  I personally prefer a fine point pen a little more, but this pen does write very smoothly, and I love that it has four colors in one pen!  As a former teacher, my favorite color to write with is red!

You can find out more about this and many more pens on the Bic website and Facebook.  This is the perfect pen to write your Valentine's Day cards with, and you can win a pen of your very own here!
