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.
The Cross Marvel collection can be purchased online at www.cross.com and at select retailers. You can access the online store locator for more details.
So I’d love to hear who is your real life super hero or your answers to the questions that I asked the boys?
