Four Color Bic Pen Multiple Ink Colors

Bic's 4-Color Ink Pen
As back to school is approaches or has already approached, depending on which state you reside ...  retro school supplies always come to mind. There was something about the four color ink pen I loved so very much as a kid. I am so surprised to see you can still purchase this assorted ink pen from Bic. I remember the pen being thick, white and having red ink, blue ink, green ink and black ink. You would click on the color to activate which color ink you wanted to use. 

I thought this was the coolest pen ever! My mom used them because she was a teacher and it helped her grade papers and do her work all at the same time, without switching pens. There's just something so genius about having an all in one colored ink pen... Anyone remember or still use these?

I had a 6 color ink pen as a kid. Loved it to no end. I've always loved collecting cool and different pens.

I loved this pen!! And I remember so many of my teachers using them for that very same reason.

I loved these until I realized how flimsy the pens are. They don't work well at all. I still like the concept, though.

Those were kind of cheaply made...but I loved them and would still use one if it ever came my way.

I'll never forget buying these pens for my two girls. They were so excited.

Wow! I remember these. I used to love them, and ask my parents to buy them for me when I was little. All the time. I used to enjoy writing things using all the colors, just clicking one color, and then another.

I loved those too! I actually found one when I was getting rid of stuff a few years ago and it still worked. I also had the really thick ones with like 12 colors when I was a kid.

I have two of these that I use at work - they were promo pens! I had one as a kid that had a ton of colors and it would always jam up because I'd forget to close one before choosing another one.

I had one a couple of times. I also had one that was pink, purple, lime green and light blue and one (non-bic) that had at least 10 colors (that one was so big it was hard to write neatly with).

I also had the bic multi pens, I would try to press two colours at the same time. Remember the papermate erasable pens? I also had pencil crayons with different colours mixed in.
