Untruth in advertising


I generally don't pay much attention to "Hello Kitty" merchandise, but this dual-point marker caught my eye as I was looking for other stuff at the local craft store. 


I was intrigued by the shape of the smaller point -- from the package illustration, it looked like a long, thin chisel point, something I'd not seen in a marker before. So I bought it…

… and was very disappointed when I got it home, opened the package and saw the actual point.


As you can see here (even in these slightly blurry photos) the small point doesn't look ANYTHING like the illustration on the package.

This may be more of what you were looking for. The beauty of these is that the nib/brush is replaceable and the ink is refillable.
