This is a pen for adults, not children, and yet...
I have decided to use this pen for children and I have great expectations! First off let me tell you about the pen. It is a space pen!! Last month marked the 52nd anniversary of the Apollo Space landing, and I thought luxury gift emporium Pen Heaven offered a great way to celebrate, in featuring their pens that would work in outer space. After checking out the selections available, paying particular attention to the intergalactic vibe, I ordered the Fisher Space Pen that was designed for use by astronauts. My students are going to love this!
THIS PEN WRITES IN EXTREME CONDITIONS (INCLUDING UNDERWATER)
AND IT WRITES AT ANY ANGLE!
This pen can write in the most extreme environments (including underwater!!!) and at any angle. What more of an extreme environment here on Earth, than in a classroom??!? LOL! Just kidding...sort of. But one thing that is for sure fact is that the students are tough on pens.
For adult use, there are some things you should know. This pen has a sealed pressurized ink cartridge. It works in extreme conditions (so it would be a wonderful gift idea for anyone in emergency career positions, military, or those who have to work outside). It even writes underwater or in the rain. I'm thinking this will go in the Holiday Gift Guide as the perfect stocking stuffer for those who work in such conditions, for teachers, astronauts (haha, not many of know an astronaut, and if you do, yay! that is very cool!), for those who have to write at odd angles, or anyone who appreciates an awesome pen.
Back to my classroom though, students lose pens a lot. You'd think having it right next to the door with a sheet of paper, they'd be fine and the pen would stay put, but no. I can't count the number of times I have to put a replacement pen up in a week. It's not optional either because we have to have a sign-out sheet for contact tracing purposes. We are accountable for knowing where each and every child is at all times. This pen comes with its own lanyard (what?!) so that will prevent my problem of lost pens (hurrah!) and that helps me make sure my sign-out log is 100% accurate without me having to stop a lesson to find a writing utensil. The lanyard comes in black or pink. The pen comes in black or chrome.
I've already hung a hook on my door. I did this once before actually, with a string, but it didn't work out because the kids couldn't write vertically with pen I had up. This one writes in any direction it is held, including upside down, so it's going to be just fine.
It sounds great. Sigh on the exploding pen issues though. I have gone through that more than once.ReplyDelete
Gadgets are so cool aren't they. This looks like such a funky pen.ReplyDelete
Oh wow! What a cool pen, so amazing that it can write in so many extreme conditions!ReplyDelete
This is such a novelty, amazing how it has been designed for astronauts. I am sure the students will love it.ReplyDelete
I need that pen for my space missions.ReplyDelete
Wow, a space pen! I'm so excited with the thought of owning one. It's indeed out of this world.ReplyDelete
Plus, I like that it's a heavy-duty pen that you can use even in the toughest conditions.Delete
Oh wow, what an interesting pen! I hate it when pens explodeReplyDelete
That’s an amazing product. A pen that writes under water! I would love a space pen.ReplyDelete
Wow a space pen! I would love to see the quality of this pen for myself!ReplyDelete
I would rather not use the pen, if I happen to own one. What an interesting pen I could have - not the ordinary thing.ReplyDelete
What a cool pen! I've had a few pens explode in my bag and it's never fun.ReplyDelete
Indeed, it is a unique pen. Ive never seen anything like it beforeReplyDelete
That is SO unique - I love it! Great idea for a gift :)ReplyDelete
I love a good pen. I always have my best with me all the time.ReplyDelete
This sounds like a cool pen! Your kids. Will definitely like it.ReplyDelete
Pressurized pens are cool for that reason. The ink doesn't stop flowing and you can write at any angle.ReplyDelete
Wow, what an interesting pen. Slightly dangerous, but cool!ReplyDelete
That is definitely an interesting pen. I would love to have that. Amazing!ReplyDelete
May your pen continue to delight you as you use in under all conditions.ReplyDelete
I really like the small size of that pen. Having a good pen is important for me because I like to journal.ReplyDelete
If I am being completely honest, I never thought about the fact that astronauts would need special pens to write in space! This is so cool!!!ReplyDelete
My husband, sister and sister in law are all teachers, and they all need this pen! It sounds awesome!ReplyDelete
Wow! What a cool pen. I like the sleek design. Love the color too!ReplyDelete
Oh how fun, such a cool pen and a great way to make writing that bot extra special xReplyDelete
Never heard of a space pen ever. It's a great invention. Nice features.ReplyDelete
These seems so awesome and compact! I've never seen anything like this before.ReplyDelete
Girl, I love pens! This would be quite the addition!ReplyDelete
I am so super picky on my pens. You do highlight a few interesting features though. It is interesting that regular pens stop working in the rain. I wonder how deep underwater this pen will work with the same integrity. By the way, I was born two days after that momentous time so that is an extra special time in history for me.ReplyDelete
Wow, I don't think I've seen a space pen before but that is looking quite interesting. I think my son would love this.ReplyDelete
Oh this is my first time to learn about this product. I would totally love to have this!ReplyDelete
Damn! What is this pen made from? I love it already! Shipping to Tanzania, as we speak!ReplyDelete
The pen looks big and looks like a rocket but only with black color, overall it's awesome penReplyDelete
Now that is a cool pen! So, my best friend had a best friend in college that actually was on Richard Branson's flight crew to space. So, I know someone who actually knows an astronaut, if that counts LOL.ReplyDelete
What a neat pen! My kids are always taking my pens.ReplyDelete
