I have an extreme fondness for these pens. My mom used to carry one in her purse when I was a kid, along with some Hot Wheels cars. When I'd get bored, my mom would let me draw with this pen and play with the cars. It fascinated me how this regular size pen could have four different colors in it. What especially amazed me was how one color would automatically retract when a different color was engaged. It was almost magical.

Despite the fact that I am now 20 years older, I still love these pens. They are fantastic for taking notes as you can use the colors to visually distinguish sections and topics. My only complaint is that the clicking noise the pen makes when changing colors is too loud. In quiet situations the loud clicking can become obnoxious. It would be wonderful is this pen were released in a higher quality material than plastic so that the action of changing colors didn't make quite the racket.

In any case, I love this pen and the fact that this item comes in packs of three makes the situation three times better.

I first started using these pens more then 40 years ago when I needed a multi-color pen in my work as an Air Force hospital medic in the Philippines. Nowadays my aging, pudgy fingers appreciate having the pen's wide barrel to grip.

IMHO these pens are the best of their kind (four-color retractable ball pen) but they have their problems. I don't think I have ever had one that out-lasted its ink supply.

For one thing, you can crack the barrel of a pen you've had for a while by screwing it on too tightly. This you can try to bandage with a stip of tape -- preferably "magic" tape that won't ooze adhesive.

Also, in warmer climes or conditions, the ink is prone to leak a bit. This, at least, eventually gums up the works at the tip of the pen. At worst, the green ink in particular seems the first to leak out of the pen and stain your pocket. Even if you're not a nerd, it's wise to use a pocket protector with this pen in hot weather or sweaty conditions.

You can usually clear out the tip, or otherwise clean up the ink, with isopropyl alcohol, but rinse promptly and copiously with water. Isopropyl does nothing good for the plastic body of the pen.

In general, once any of these problems created inconvenience, I just disposed of my pen and bought a new one.

As my need for a multi-color pen passed, other thick-grip pens came on the market, and the store-bought price for this pen rose to near $5 each, I stopped using them. In the meantime, perhaps Bic may have improved the formulation of their green ink. I don't know.

It is mostly the Amazon price (on Jan 16, 2014) of $5.59 for 3 ($1.86 each) that brought me back. And the nostalgia.

Because despite the problems, I "like" this pen as the best available of its kind, and because I "love" the good value of the Amazon price for this 3-pack, I award this offer 5 stars, up from 4.

Just keep a wary eye on that green ink.

I started using the 4-color Bic pens about 50 years ago in grammar school, and this one is exactly the same except the little "ball" on top is now lanyard loop. I used these pens throughout my working life because I could color-code notes, names, dates, specific information, etc, something that's not always as easy to do electronically.

So it's a cheap, great pen that's extremely useful. Nothing bad about it except you'll have to carry a pencil if you need one.

Size Name: 3 Count Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
I didn't realize they still made these! I remember different kids having them back in elementary school, but they sort of fell off my radar. I thought they were cool then, and still do. How much utility is in this one package? I would say limited, but not negligible, so if you have a need to write in different colored inks, I think the old, tried-n-true 4-clicker is the way to go.

In review: the action is fairly smooth, and I was unable to 'jam' the mechanism with any sort of reasonable action or force (though I'm sure you *can* if you're determined to break it - it's only a plastic pen). The inks are the same ol' BIC ballpoints, so no surprises there. The blue is a little dark when put next to the black, so you'll need a brightly-lit room or just don't butt black and blue together. Other than that, red is bright, green is vibrant, and I think you'll be well-pleased with this classic pen. It was seriously pretty cool to see these again, as I haven't noticed them in years.

Definitely cool for kids, but I have uses for them as an adult as well. Any note-taking or serial listing updates are visually aided. Of course, many men are color-blind...so, bummer there, but aside from that, I don't know how much more you could expect from this pen concept. Sure beats carrying around 2 or 3 pens (which I have done off and on for years). Until Montblanc comes up with a functional equivalent, I'll be keeping a few of these campy, retro, blue & white ones around from now on.

I have been a nurse for almost 40 years and through the years have gone through different hospital requirements about what color to write with. At one time nurses had to write in red. Then we had to write in just black or blue, then only black. Now, we use the use a word processor to chart on our patients but still have to sign off the doctor's orders in red. I've used these pens for many years but have found that no matter what I do they eventually break with ink all over my pocket. What a mess..in my pocket and all over my hands. I have never used one of these pens until the ink ran out. They always break first...frustrating! I'm think I'll try a different brand and see what happens.
