I have tried Google but not really having any luck. DS (2) decided to pen mark poor DC1's donkeys face.

Vinegar and bicarbonate? Often does the trick. Sorry... Made me chuckle!

Flash magic eraser. Gets Biro off walls etc so might work on donkeys?

Wd40 or hairspray.

It's not often you see a question asked on Mumsnet which has never been asked before, but I think you've managed it smile

If all else fails try rubbing alcohol. It's great at getting marks off

I had to open this thread just to see if I could find out why someone should have an inflatable donkey with pen marks on it. It's been niggling at me all day. grin

Hairspray? I've used it successfully to get pen marks off leather before.

Ha ha thank you everyone, never crossed my mind that it sounded like an odd request but in hindsight I can see it does grin (think I have just got used to seeing said donkey on the dining table for the last 2 weeks.

Will be on to scrubbing it's pink rubbery face tomorrow smile

I think we need a pic of said Donkey?

If it's proper biro then surgical spirit will get it off. Discovered this when my health visitor accidentally drew on my new sofa. 'Ooh' she said 'this looks new, when did you get it?'. 'It was delivered about an hour ago' I replied angry

We used to have an inflatable donkey (kind of a donkey shaped space hopper?) and ours had biro all over it too.

Anything pertaining to inflatable donkeys belongs in the sex topic.
