Ergonomic UGLee Pen Review & Giveaway

Disclosure: I got this product as part of an advertorial.

Thanks to Tomoson.com, I received a 3-pack of UGLee Pens to try, review, and to offer as a giveaway to you.

Here’s a bit about the company:

“The UGLee Pen is good for everyone who writes (even just a grocery list), and is especially helpful to people who experience pain and discomfort when writing, for example those with arthritis, carpal tunnel syndrome, etc., and for all children who are learning to write and are developing fine motor skills. It is also helpful for special-needs children who find holding a pen or pencil properly difficult. And for high-school and college students who have to take copious notes, this pen helps keep hands and fingers from cramping.”

I try to make my reviews be totally honest and transparent. I have been lucky to have a lot of amazing products that I’ve been able to review in the past. I knew that at some point, I would receive something that I didn’t love. Unfortunately, today is that day. I have mixed feelings about writing about them, but I was asked to do a review, and a review I shall do. Because I was sent 3 pens, I used one and gave the other two to Tim and my mom. Tim has a love of writing utensils (he is always taking my pens and putting them in his pen collection in our closet at the end of the day), and my mom has recently had some issues with her arm and hand that cause writing to become difficult. I thought the ergonomic design could help her out a lot, if it worked. The review that follows is based on all three of our opinions:

First, the positives:

  • Easy-to-open packaging
  • Nice colors of the outside of the pen
  • Easy click-top
  • Squishy, long grip
  • Thicker pen to make it easier to grasp
  • Lightweight
  • Don’t have to grip tightly in order to use (good for those with hand issues)

Now, the negatives:

  • Outside colors of the pens don’t match the actual pen (we only tried the blue color ink)
  • Pen didn’t write smoothly (constantly having to scribble to get ink to flow)
  • Thick-tipped writing only
  • Tim’s explanation was: “a cheap ballpoint pen in a nicer cover”
  • Lightweight (don’t feel substantial)
  • “Slimy” grip

Now, the giveaway:

One winner will receive a 3-pack of pens (colors chosen randomly), sent by UGLee Pens. You can enter the contest using the widget below:

I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Tomoson.com. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.
