With all the Adult coloring books available now, it's easy to find a use for these amazing colored pencils. Plus my girls just love to color!
These pencils color smooth and flawless. I like the round cardboard style tube they came in. It's more durable than a standard box that we usually get colored pencils in. Even with 4 kids and toting these pencils around the house & on trips, I can see this tube lasting for a very long time keeping the pencils in great shape. At first, I was thinking that $11 seemed a bit pricey for 48 pencils but when I looked up the cost of another well-known brand, for just 2 more pencils, their price was nearly the same. If you are looking for some high-quality colored pencils to have on hand for sketching, drawing, and using in adult coloring books, I recommend these and would give them a 4 1/2 to 5 stars. Despite using them quite a bit so far, we haven't had to sharpen them yet. I will add an update as soon as I have to sharpen any to let you know if they sharpen evenly like I anticipate and hope they will. The only thing that I can really ding these pencils on is that they don't have the names of the colors on the pencils. Some of the darker colors are so dark that I keep a piece of paper to mark a line so I know what I'm working with. Other than that, these pencils are great!
