My boys are both Superhero fans with plenty of toys and books featuring the likes of Batman, Spiderman and Hulk, so who else was I going to ask to help me test out a Marvel Spiderman pen that I have received free to review from Cross.
They immediately decided that Superhero dressing-up was in order, so we have two Spidermen accompanied by two Hulk bears.
I asked son1 to use the Spiderman pen to make his mark by answering the following questions.
• Tell us about your favourite superhero and why?
• If you could choose one superhero power, what would it be?
• If you were a superhero for a day what would you do?
And here are his answers.
And son2 also answered the second question.
You can see we appear to have a Hulk bias in their answers. I blame the bears! With all that smashing going on, I think I had better choose invisibility as my own superhero power.
Cross have just launched this new series of fine writing instruments featuring the most prominent icons of the Marvel Universe – Iron Man, Captain America, and Spiderman. This ties in with the new Marvel movie, Captain America: Civil War which will be out in the cinema at the end of this week.
We will have our fingers crossed that son1’s blood counts will be high enough for a cinema visit. We’re all certainly counting down the months to the end of his chemotherapy when our lives can regain a sense of normality. No more worrying about picking up a bug which could be potentially life-threatening. He has been such a superhero throughout his treatment.
The pen we received is the Tech2 style, which transforms from a ballpoint pen to a stylus in a flash, so great to use on the iPad too. It is finished in a metallic lacquer and displayed in a Marvel themed gift box. This style of pen currently retails at £30, but is also available in the brand’s evolutionary Century II rolling ball style for £95.
This dual-use pen would be an especially great gift for Dads.
So I’d love to hear who is your real life super hero or your answers to the questions that I asked the boys?
Disclosure. This post is a review of a product I was sent for free. I will also receive 2 free tickets for the new Marvel movie, Captain America: Civil War after this review is published. All opinions are my own.
