I’m not a huge stationery lover – in theory I love it but there is one thing that I really don’t like – using a notebook and having to cross things out, on a to do list or something. If pages are finished and done with I have to tear them out as I don’t like it being messy and being like this makes me not want to use notebooks at all, I’d rather make notes on my phone and be able to delete them without making any mess.
When Magic Whiteboard got in touch about their Magic Notebook I was so excited by their products. As you can tell from the above, I don’t often get excited by notebooks but Magic Notebook is different – it’s a notebook made from Whiteboard style paper so that you can write on it, erase it and write on it again, as many times as you like.
Magic Notebook sent me a selection of their products including both A4 and A5 size books as well as some whiteboard pens to try them out. The A4 notebooks had ruled lines, squares, plain pages, handwriting practice pages and even colouring book pages so a reusable notebook for every use. The A5 books were the same but smaller and I had the ruled and plain page versions to try out.
Each of the books was easy to write on and dried really quickly – quicker than a normal whiteboard. The writing didn’t smudge or rub off when the book was closed but came off nicely using a piece of kitchen towel or a whiteboard eraser – even rubbing hard with your finger works too!
LP loved the colouring book as she was able to colour it in, erase it and colour it in again – she now wants a bigger selection of whiteboard pens to be able to colour it in using a bigger variety of colours!
I’ll be using at least one of the notebooks to keep all my blogging info in going forward and I am sure LP will be using the handwriting practice book when she starts school in a few months. The concept of Magic Notebook is great and one that I absolutely love. It fills a definite gap in the market and I just need to invest in their chunky hardback, spiral bound notebook – I would then never need to buy another notebook!
