Pilot Pen Set… Help!

Am I going mental?! I have such a vivid memory of a Pilot Pen Set that my best friend got for Christmas when we were younger… Maybe 10 or, so this is mid ’90s. I was SO jealous. It was an assorted set that had every pilot pen you could possibly dream about… or at least it felt like it at the time. Anyway, I thought, this would be a good one to write a post on; see what was in the sets, if they still exist etc…

HOWEVER, I can’t find any record of such a thing of the internet anywhere! And I’m quite good a googling. I’m so baffled. I though it was “a thing”. Maybe I made it up… My boyfriend says he remembers them too, but I’m not sure if he’s just humouring me.

So reader, does anyone else know what I’m talking about? Did anyone ever have one? Worth a shot I suppose…



  1. Yes. Yes! I do remember them. My local newsagent used to sell them, as it was round the corner from a secondary school. I did buy one once and I got serious classroom cred. It was excellent for gaining pencil case oneupmanship. However stationery theft was an issue at my school and you had to be on your guard; no leaving it unattended or out of your line of sight!

    If you manage to track one down I’d be interested to know if you can still buy them anywhere.
