The classic chalk stick is a toy that kids have played with for decades, but with the MFMARKER Chalk Tagger, artist Baschz Leeft gives the toy's image a much-needed makeover.

The MFMarker (MyFirstMarker) is essentially just a chalk marker that's been sculpted to look like a permanent marker. Rather than encouraging kids to go out and make a lasting mark on public property with paint or markers, this chalk stick is something that encourages creativity that will be eventually washed away by the rain. Since an ordinary chalk stick just doesn't have the same allure of a graffiti marker, Leeft describes that this creation is one that "Safely introduces little children to the art of vandalism."

For protection, the white piece of chalk comes in a black tube, that almost looks like a can of spray paint.
