In 1995, Sanford launched McMarkers — two sets of  licensed scented markers — in partnership with McDonald’s. The partnership didn’t seem to last very long, as almost no mentions of the pen sets appear beyond that year.

Truly magical markers

Nifty McMarkers sit in a holder that looks just like a French-fry box and keeps a set of Magic Markers at the ready.There are no caps to lose, and even if your little Picasso happens to leave a pen out, an overnight stay in the McMarker holder will replenish the color! Sanford, $5.
