Black Barrel is Terrible Idea
The older version of these markers had a white barrel with a big circle in whatever color the marker was and wavy stripes of color going around the top and bottom. The newer version has a black barrel with a white circle and white stripes. You have to look at the cap to tell what color the marker is. This is a problem with young children who may not put the cap back on the right marker. Other than that we really ,like these markers. They are good quality and last a long time. It's easy to clean up marks on the table, wall, clothing, etc.
ProsThey are truly washable. It's easy to clean marks off tables, clothes, and hands.
