Sanford Foohy

I have never been "picky" about markers. As long as they work, I like to have a nice variety on hand. Different brands give you different colors which gives you different results in the art work. Foohy Gel Markers, however, seem to be (or should I say..seemed) a brand beloved by art teachers everywhere. Unfortunately, Sanford has yanked Foohy Markers from the market. We need Foohy! Mega marker makers like Crayola, Prang, RoseArt..etc...need to have a quality product like Foohy Gel Markers to hold them to a higher standard.
SANFORD ARE YOU LISTENING?
BRING BACK FOOHY!!!!!!!!!!!!

  2. These are my favorite markers. The crayola ones just don't compare in my oppinion.

  3. I just discovered these markers in a classpack ordered by a previous art teacher. They are great markers and my kids LOVE them. I can't believe they've discontinued them -- I'm gonna write them!

  4. Love Foohy gel markers. Was SO disappointed to see that they were yanked. Crayola gel markers aren't juicy enough and don't hold up near to the quality of the Foohy markers.

  5. You know, Crayola isn't all that they hype about! As an art teacher you spend so much money ordering markers and you want quality, juicy markers, which Crayola is not. I don't even buy Crayola tempera paint any more. There are so many more options than Crayola and I think they better step up their game and check their prices before they loose out on us art teachers!!! There! I guess I got on a soap box, sorry...

  6. There is no other product on the market to compare to the Sanford Foohy markers! Will Binney & Smith take the hint and develop a similar product? Their current gel markers aren't even close!

  7. I though I was the only looking for Foohy markers...I can't find them anywhere. I have double sided gel and metallic markers from 6 years ago and would be willing to spend the money if I could find them again. Foohy is my favorite!!!

  8. It's a long story how I just fell onto this old post of yours - but anyhow - oh do I miss those Foohy's, and even more, I miss the Foohy Gel markers that were fabulously rich in color, including black. Nothing like the wimpy colors of Crayola Gel markers. Did you ever find what happened to the Foohy markers?

  10. I'VE BEEN SEARCHING FOR FOOHY PRODUCTS FOR WHAT SEEMS LIKE AN ETERNITY. IN MY OPINION, THERE ARE NO OTHER MARKERS THAT COMPARE TO THE QUALITY OF FOOHY. BRING BACK FOOHY!!!
