Testing Up & Up (Target Brand)

I'm always up for trying new/different brands!  This is the first year I remember seeing the Up & Up school supplies at Target.  I may have missed it before though?!?  Back-to -School prices are not as good as they use to be...so if I can find quality products at a better price...YOU BETTER BELIEVE THAT'S WHAT I'LL BE GETTING!!!!!! ha ha  
So here is what I found from my very scientific tests!!!


I don't know if anyone can top Crayola's crayons?  Up & Up is a little "waxier", but not as bad as some "other" major crayon brands.  They are worth a try, but I don't think they'll make you forget your Crayola's.  


 I really liked their colored pencils.  They are a little harder lead...so the color will be a bit lighter, 
but not by much.   


The markers really worked well.  You may be able to see the colors differences, but you have that with all brands.  I'm not sure what they'll be like in the long run....that is the true test of markers!  I'll keep using them & get back to ya!!!!


  1. Might have to give it a try! :)

  2. Great test there. On the markers the proof is in the endurance. It might have been interesting to take a marker of each brand a part and look at the guts. _HAHA. maybe that can be your next post:)
