NEWS – Check this out pen and pencil fanatics! The wonderfully retro 4 Color multi-pen from BIC is celebrating its 50yr birthday and has been updated to now include a mechanical pencil.* You get red, blue, and black ink pens, along with a 0.7 mm retractable lead pencil that replaces the green pen that is included with the original BIC 4 Color pen. Need an eraser too? No problem, there’s one under a cap on the top and there are 5 extra erasers along with 12 replacement leads included with the pen. It’s priced at $5.49 from Amazon.
A rep from BIC contacted me to let me know that while BIC does make the 4-Color pen with a mechanical pencil, the 50th anniversary pen actually includes purple ink – rather than a mechanical pencil! Please find the link to the 50th anniversary pen here.
They also wanted to let everyone know about BIC’s feel-good movement to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the pen! To honor this milestone and feel more connected with friends and loved ones during these unprecedented times, BIC is spreading cheer and gratitude with the BIC 4-Color Garden, bringing people together through drawings and doodles on Instagram, all while giving back to the community. For each flower drawing shared with #BIC4ColorGarden, BIC will donate $1 toward Kids In Need Foundation, up to $50,000 through July 1, 2020.
