I got to try these out today:
(Not sure how to make that a real link.) They're totally plastic, but you buy the ink separately and it wicks into the markers through the writing surface. They feel sturdy enough to go through gallons of ink before you'd need new markers. I'm not sure how often they need re-inking, and the process isn't very kid-friendly. They're smaller than a crayola marker -- closer to crayon size. Worth a look if you find yourself throwing away a lot of plastic markers.
Those look really interesting. Is it the same kind of ink as would be in a Magic Marker? Does it come in different colors?
I forgot to make a note of the type of ink I tried. (It was decidedly non-washable, since I was at a fabric design class.) But you buy the ink separately, so I'd imagine any bottled ink would do the trick. We used several basic colors.
