Those tend to be permanent - well, without alcool or something..



I think that's what she meant.

Overhead projector pens (ohp) are for writing on transparent slides during a talk. You can wipe the marks off later.

You can of course use permanent marker pens to make transparent slides and that ink doesn't come off.

That HARD ROCK vest (and every other drawering on that klicky) seen on the xmasy dio 2015 was made with those pens.. sometime in the 90s, I believe. And the guy was bagged and boxed with everyone else..

(link to the page in the dio - it's the last pic)

Maybe these are more like the dry boards and pens?

The pens we used wipe off with water (generally teachers use a damp paper towel), so if we knew whether the included wipes are wet or dry, that should tell us which genre of pen is included. I think wet erase pens would be more suitable for "pro klicky" use because dry erase pens smudge too easily when you touch the writing, so you'd lose your labeling once someone stuck their big thumb on it. I'm betting the klicky plastic is the usual stuff, in white.

I think they should have made the whole set white and included a set of pens in different colors, so people could go to town "customizing" as they see fit. For the price, I'd certainly expect pens in colors other than just black.

Ah, sorry, I am not familiar with those... The markers I always saw used with those are the "permanent markers"..

Agree.  Again.. who thinks of these?

I would LOVE to know how much they sell. And who actually buys it. I mean, if it's crazy RICH collectors (if I had the cash, I'd buy me a couple  :P ) or actually "companies" - and the this case, I would LOVE to know WHY too. What for, I mean.  ???

I associate wet erase pens with teachers; I don't think most professions have a use for them normally. I remember making lessons on several transparency sheets, using them for each class (with a damp paper towel to erase the fill-in-the-blank answers), and then washing them to reuse for the next lesson (because there wouldn't be enough for the semester if fresh ones were used each week). Computer projectors are so much easier (when they want to cooperate with your computer, of course). I'm surprised wet erase pens still exist, but I googled and they do, so there must be another use for them.

That's a very good question. Given the overall composition of the set (like there's a jester's hat but no shorter hair options for women), I'm not entirely sure that Playmobil knows the answer either. It's less versatile and more hodge-podge.

Just keep an eye on their website and in one year they probably sell them for the half of the current price. Fingers crossed...

Yes... kinda messy, right?

I have NO IDEA what's it for (except parts for us!  :P )

Even half would be too much.
