I got this at a Dollar Tree a few days after Christmas for some pocket change. I probably would have put this review off even longer, if it weren’t for my niece Jade and her many attempts at smuggling this item from my room. I guess the big gimmick here is that this isn’t just a pen, but 5 different items entirely.
The first is this little topper featuring a Christmas stocking containing some presents, a stuffed bear, and what appears to be a banana peel.
Here’s one of the more intriguing parts, some kind of light. Although this doesn’t give off enough luminescence to brighten even the smallest of areas, I guess it’s the most advanced portion of our pen thus making it a little more noteworthy than the other parts.
After missing with this thing for a few minutes I absolutely destroyed and dismantled it beyond repair. My pen was now in pieces. Take note that I didn’t do this on purpose, but the cheap design of the item was to blame.
I found out rather on accident that the aforementioned topper seconded as a stamper. The stamp is a rough rendering of the topper itself, which boggled my mind for some reason. I suppose it’s not the oddest choice, but I was assuming it’d be a stamp of Santa Claus or a more seasonally iconic character or symbol.
Lastly, there were some little hard candies inside the tube of the pen. I was pleasantly surprised that these were quite tasty for what they were. I was expecting something a little more customarily bland, but these actually packed some flavor, thus making this mess somewhat acceptable in terms of an overall success.
