I got a ton of Zebras last week - Giveaway

I got 4 new Zebra Finches (two matched pairs) to add to the little zoo that I have here.  Boy are they cute.  I love their sweet soft singing.  Much un-like my other 3 birds, which tend to be very loud.  My oldest G-son said "they bounce off the walls of the cage like ping pong balls."   Because they are very flighty and always on the move. 

The other Zebras that I received were some awesome new Zebra pens and pencils.  Look at these colorful and fun new Zebra pens and pencils.  I love them!
I received the Z-Grip Daisies Retractable Ball Point Pens in five fun colors in a medium 1.0 mm point.  The rubberized grip tells you the color of the ink.  I love embellishing my envelopes with these very smooth writing ink pens.  They also make writing snail mail letters much more fun as well.

Next, I received the very colorful Cadoozles .7 mm mechanical pencil 6 pack.  The Cadoozles are refillable and I love that they have the shape of a regular pencil.  They roll less and feels like you are writing with a wooden pencil.  Each has a different colorful graphic for both boys and girls.  Some of the graphics themes  include balloons, sports gear, ice cream treats, music, and space.  You will never have to sharpen your pencil again with the Cadoozles.

Then I finally received two four packs of assorted colors of the Regal Roller Ball Pens.  One in a arrow tip that is 0.7 mm and the other is a needle tip that is 0.5 mm.  I wasn't sure how much I would enjoy using the roller ball pens.  They surprised me!  I enjoyed how smooth they were to write with and find that I am using them on a daily basis.  The four colors are black, blue, red and green.  I love that you can actually see how much ink is left in the barrel.  And if you travel, they are airplane safe!  You won't have them taken from you at check-in.

The Zebra Pen Corp has been a leader in the business for more than 110 years.  Zebra is a name associated with quality, and they back their quality with a guarantee.  Zebra has also produced an eco-friendly line of products.  Many of their products are refillable, and so ...are eco-friendly.

“Right now, consumers are most concerned with two things: making sure they’re getting the best product their money can buy and doing what they can to ‘go green,’ said Director of Marketing Chris Farley. “Zebra Pen Corporation is making a way for consumers to do both.”

When you visit the Zebra facebook page you will find that they hold  many contest of their own.  You might want to take a moment while there and see what is happening.  Zebra products can be found in stores such as; Staples, Walmart, K-mart, as well as other office supply stores.  Many food and drug supply stores also carry the Zebra products.  For more information, check out the Zebra website, it's full of information and very easy to navigate.
