When you use authentic Spirograph® pen refills for your Spirograph® sets by Kenner you will be delighted! These quality Spirograph® pen replacements work just as well as the original, and possibly better. The original Spirograph® pen cartridges were made of plastic and the official Spirograph® pens replacements are made of metal with high quality ink. Spirograph® toy pens replacements are what you are looking for in old style ballpoint pen refills. Both our Spirograph® ball point pen refills and the pens themselves come in red ink, blue ink, green ink and black ink.

Bring more creativity by adding additional colors to your Spirograph experience. The ballpoint tips of each of the cartridges inside are the exact right size to fit properly into the holes of the Spirograph gears. Colors include black, blue, red and green, yellow, light blue, pink, purple, brown, and orange.
Replacement Pens are for 1960s Kenner Spirograph.®
We are certainly aware that the Spirograph® has had many, many versions over the years. The pen replacements that we offer fit the Kenner toys version of the product that was made between 1965 and 1969, as pictured here. This includes the “Super Spirograph®” and other variants made during that time period.
The pens will ALSO work in the “Spirograph Plus®” from 1983/1984. The only thing in that case is that the colors will be off. Those units had three pens: Blue, Red (Pink) and Orange, but at least you know that the replacement pens would fit! Try our multicolor pen if you want these alternate colors.
It is possible that the pens and pen refills will also be compatible with earlier and later versions of the toy, made by other companies, but we cannot guarantee that. If you have Spirographs from 1971, 1972, 1973, 1974, 1975, 1976, 1977, 1978, 1979, 1980, 1981, 1982, 1983 and 1984, our pens WILL PROBABLY WORK! If your model used felt-tip pens then our pens will NOT work! What we sell is the old style ball point pens.
Original Pen Tip and Modern “Rollerball” Tip Comparison.
Beware other “Spirograph® Pens” suppliers who just want to make a buck but don’t really care about your happiness. They claim that their pens “work perfectly with the small holes on the Spirograph® Wheels” but this is actually not true. In our tests, their pens MAY FIT INTO THE HOLES OF THE SPIROGRAPH GEARS BUT THEY FIT SO TIGHTLY THAT THERE IS NO ROOM FOR PLAY! This means that their pens create friction as you attempt to draw, which results in errors and frustrating skipping and mistakes. Although it is tempting to get their pens that write in 12 colors, you will most likely be disappointed!
Notice how the rollerball style has NO ROOM for play because it “fits” so tightly into the hole.
Official Spirograph® Pen Refills.
If you have the pens that came with your Spirograph® toy but they are dried out, then you just need the refills. The original Spirograph® pen refills were 105 mm in length. The replacement Spirograph® pen refills are 106 mm. The extra millimeter is in the tip of the replacement cartridges, so it does not interfere with the functioning of the pen mechanism itself! However, if you find that the extra protrusion of the pen tip causes the gear to slip, just loosen the pen barrel by half a twist and that will help. The tip is called “medium tip,” like the original was, not “fine tip.” Also known as “x-10 refills” or “x-10 ballpoint pen refills, “thin ballpoint pens” or “thin tip ballpoint pen refills.”
Note: our Spirograph® Pen refills will fit both your original Spirograph® pens AND also the replacement Spirograph® pens, below. If you are buying the pens, it may be a good idea to buy one refill kit to have it ready.
These ballpoint pen cartridges ALSO will fit ANY old-fashioned vintage ballpoint pen from the 1950s, 1960s and 1970s, before they started phasing out this size. This includes the Ritepoint® pens.

Spirograph® Pen Replacement Set – All 4 Colors $19.99 Buy Now
This set includes one red, blue, green and black pen to replace the original pens that came with your spirograph® Included with each colored pen is the ink cartridge of the same color. This set includes a 16% discount off the price if you were to purchase each pen separately. Each pen is customized specifically to work with the Spirograph gears. We found barrels manufactured in Germany but they are off by 2mm so we must individually modify each one.
(If you find the Schneider K15 pens, they will not work as they are — because the tips will not reach all the way through the gear holes. They must be modified to make them work and we have taken that step for you! You may call our pens “modified Schneider pens,” “Spirograph® Pens from Sound Feelings Publishing” or “Sound Feelings Pens, catalog #96083.”)
