Great everyday colored pencils! Perfect for school, home, arts, crafts, relaxation coloring, and more. Our 12 yr old needed a 24 ct colored pencil for school, but the store was sold out. I grabbed a couple boxes of these Cra-Z-Art 36 ct. boxes of colored pencils instead, very inexpensive. He was thrilled with the 36 color choices compared to the usual 24 and loved the bright vibrancy of the shades. I really love that these pencils come pre- sharpened, so no hassle! They are also Non-Toxic, I can feel safe giving these to the kids for use. Colors smooth, doesn’t skip, and the pencil leads seem strong, we haven’t had an issue with breakage. I’m glad I purchased 2 boxes! Recommend, and will repurchase.
