|Maped Tatoo Soft Fountain Pen|
When I opened the box of stationery supplies I was sent from National Stationery Week and Small Man Media my husband spotted this pen straight away and picked it up for a closer look. He was definitely drawn to the fun comic book/pop art design on it and so was I! It reminds me of the Batman TV show that used to be on in the 60's (which I watched as repeats in the 80's!) when the fight scenes were intersected with flashes of cartoon POW!!'s and BOOOOM!!'s.
The pen comes with a standard cartridge of blue ink so you can use it straight away, I popped it into the pen and tried it out.
The nib is a little finer than I am used to using but it still writes well and the triangular comfort soft grip feels nice and, well, comfortable in my hand!
This pen retails for around £5 which makes it a great starter fountain pen for children or if you haven't used one in a while and want to try again without splashing out too much cash.

Overall I really like this pen, the design is fun and colourful and it passes my main test which is good ink flow so it doesn't feel scratchy when I write with it.
I will be back with a second pen review later on today and you will have the chance to win your own shiny new fountain pen to play with!
