The great marker exchange

Fellow parents of small-ish kids: anyone have some spare green (washable) markers they want to swap for a different color?

See, our elder son's favorite color is green. Consequently, he uses up the ink in the green markers long before any other color. But no one sells the kids' washable markers individually--you have to buy a whole multicolored pack. Therefore we have about three working markers apiece in any color you like, except green. Green we keep running low on.

So it seemed to me that we parents need to orchestrate an exchange: are there any households out there in similar need of, say, purple markers? Or black ones? Or yellow, or red, or orange, or blue? Speak up and we can do some swapping via mail! (Note: I do prefer the washable type, be they Crayola or Rose Art or other brand. We're willing to take either thick or thin varieties, however.)

Hmm, maybe...I'd have to see how well they wash off hands and tables!

Mine have been through the hands of three kids, and are of no further use... but the folks at Crayola have what you need: 12-packs of single colors.

(Scroll most of the way down to the bottom, until you get to "Crayola Washable Bulk Markers, Wedge Tip - 12 Markers. Green")

They sell markers directly, but I didn't see the bulk packs in there - a phone call would probably straighten that out. The "Where to Buy" link offers the usual list of stores that might or might not actually have them. Amazon seems to have only the non-washable single-color packs: http://www.amazon.com/Crayola-Classic-Broadline-Conical-Markers/dp/B0044SGT4U/ref=sr_1_3?ie=UTF8&qid=1288669526&sr=8-3.

Aha! Thank you! I knew LJ would produce an answer--and, for that matter, suspected Crayola probably had thought of this, at least in some form.

With your tip I did further searching and found them here:

Now that will make an exciting stocking stuffer for him indeed. :)
