Hello! I have been a floaty pen collector for 11 years. I bought my first pen at Legoland in Denmark and I now have about 450 pens.  Click on the categories below to see my pens.


For the “floaty novice,” floaty pens are oil-filled pens with movable images. The company that makes them is Eskesen, although there are some fakes out there (I know there are fakes made in Italy and China). You will see that the photos I provide are of just the window portion, not the entire pen (to save image load time). An example of an entire pen is here.

On a side note, for you animal lovers out there, take a look at this site:  There is a horrendous stray dog problem in Romania, as you can see on the Romanian Animal Rescue, Inc. website. If you would like to get involved to help these dogs, please contact me at
