Overall experience was great and my daughter loves her journals!
I've purchased this item in the past, the cover theme changes each year it seems so that's nice. My aunt loves receiving it to keep her work notes organized. This time the pen (which was not the one pictured above) arrived broken beyond repair. It was black and mostly plastic. I'm still giving a 5 star rating because the pen isn't what makes this item great anyway.
It was a Christmas gift for my daughter and she seemed to love it.
Very nice quality.
