Price Point : S$2 for Board + Stand, and S$2 for one liquid chalk marker (available in white, green, yellow, orange and pink)
Context : Daiso, Plaza Singapura
Before : Like everything else in the shop, it shouted "Kawaii-Das!!" An eco-friendly alternative to jot down "to do" tasks in the office, rather than finding scraps of paper. And who ever knew there was such thing as liquid chalk markers that can write on blackboard surfaces!?
First Impression : A simple product which promised to be simple and no frills
During : Following the broken English translation if how to use the pen, the ink finally flowed out after pressing the nib down... not much different to paint markers. But it didn't live up to its promise of rubbing off with wet cloth/tissue... instead I had to use nail polish remover, which also removed some of the black paint off the board
After : Have to admit I'm disappointed with the fact it doesn't rub off easily...
Score : 10/10 for innovation and price, 5/10 for functionality
Last Words : Buy a chalk board and chalk instead
