I’m not one to totally slam a brand. There are so many factors in every situation. There are bad batches, factors in transportation (things being too hot, too cold, or getting bounced around in shipping), and operator error. I will say I’ve liked Mondo Llama’s crayons, markers, and colored pencils (not my favorite...but I’d for sure recommended them to my students for at home use!).
I was given some gift cards to Target from someone in the community that likes to support the arts. I went on line and saw that Mondo Llama had brushes. I ordered about a class set worth. Within a week I regretted my decision. After a couple days of using them...their was a plastic like coating start bubbling up on the handle. A couple days later their were large areas of paint pealing off. Now you might be thinking I left my brushes in water. No, I learned not to make that mistake over 20 years ago when I first started teaching. There is just something up with these brushes. I terribly disappointed. The brush itself is nice, but the handles....not so much.
