SMENS Gourmet Scented Pens Review and Giveaway!

Good day Neighbors!

It is so beautiful outside today, and I am so glad you chose to stop by At the Fence. I have another great item from Educational Insights. They are called SMENS ($24.99). They are made from 100% recycled newspapers and biodegradable plastic. There are 10 SMENS that each come in a gourmet scent. The tube that each pen comes in is made from biodegradable plastic. SMENS are guaranteed to keep their scent for two years.


The 10 scents include:
Pink Lemonade
Black Licorice
Creamsicle
Banana Fo Fana
Aloha
Caramel Corn
Red Licorice
Mocha
Ninja Berry
Passion Fruit


They are really nicely scented. I am having my daughters keep them in the tubes when they are not in use. These will be great for school! They are recommended for ages 6-14. Once again these would make a great gift idea for a teacher! Or you could give them as a gift with a journal. My 10 year old loves writing and getting to use pens with gourmet scents only makes the writing more enjoyable.


One neighbor will win a set of SMENS.

Mandatory Entry:Visit Educational Insights and tell me in a comment one product they carry that you would like to see reviewed. You do not have to be a blogger, but you must leave a valid email where you can be reached should you win. This giveaway will end 7/6 at 11:59 pm CST.
