These arent the REAL brush pens, they're more a 'brush style tip'. Thickness doesnt change with pressure and the colour saturation on the 'pen tip' is weak at best. I expected more from a brand like Crayola, so i can honestly say i was very disappointed. If you want 16 fancy textas, with 16 coloured pens, then i guess you could buy this. But if you want brush pens, or detail colour pens go elsewhere.
Oh - and if you hate excessive packaging, dont even think about it - the tin is nice but filled with disposable pen trays that you have to throw out, then the pens roll around because there's so much room in it. Not a great design.
I have not opened the packages yet, but do not believe that the products will be anything less than as advertised. The rating of less than 5 is solely because one of the packages was a little crushed in transit, and as it is to be a present it does not quite meet expectations. No blame is being apportioned to Amazon, but rough handling of goods seems to be an ever increasing problem. As this is my first complaint about a problem that has happened many times, (from many suppliers) it is possible that a review of relationships with transporters is warranted, before it gets out of hand. I am sure that I'm not the only person who is getting a little sick of it.
