We have new pencils! It's always fun to open a new package of writing utensils and try them out for the first time. I really like these Bic Xtra-Fun pencils because they are two-toned, making them more colorful to use. They look more like colored pencils than the regular #2.
Another thing I really like about these new pencils is that they have break-resistant lead, so they don't break as much as some other brands when writing or drawing. Some kids/adults press hard when writing, so breaking is a regular thing. So far, that has not happened at all and the point seems to stay sharp a lot longer too. The latex-free erasers have held up with repeated use and haven't come flying off. All in all, a pretty good product so far.
You can purchase these for about $2.99 for 10 pencils, at retailers nationwide.
