Our Experience


I adore the package this mini color pencils come in. It is a very sturdy paper tube with a nice close fitting lid. The pencils are packed in tightly enough that they don't knock each other around, but not too tight that Moira can't get them in and out on her own. I think this would be a perfect travel pack of pencils. I was also excited to discover that the company is located in the Pacific Northwest, so it's local to me!
8/22. A Room

The colors are strong and vibrant and the small size makes them easy for both kids to use. Colored pencils in our house are usually used once or twice and then ignored, but these have been coming out over and over for different projects.
Excited girl
Moira seemed especially enchanted with the pencils, and had lots of plans for what to write and draw with them. The one problem we had was that some of the leads were a little loose inside their newspaper shells, but I've never bought a pack of colored pencils where that wasn't true.

Buy it!

You can purchase your own Mini Color Pencils in a Tube from TreeSmart for $3.95. In addition to their line of colored pencils, they make notebooks, rulers, and lead pencils, and they offer a school set called the All Star Recycle Set, which is just $10 and which two readers will be winning as part of a set! Plus they have classroom sized sets at very good prices. There is also a fundraiser kit available!
