Bright Pencil Sharpeners
Great for shoeboxes
Haven't been able to find multipacks of pencil sharpeners anywhere else... These will work great in our Operation Christmas Child shoebox gifts-- and still have plenty left for future years! Do wish the little plastic covers would snap onto these more securely, but just the fact that they HAVE covers is a plus!

Cute gift for great price.
Great colorful and useful sharpeners to give to kids to get ready for the school year. Goes along great with Oriental Trading of personalized color #2 pencil. I got three dozen for a reasonable price. They were the talk of the party.

Great Gift for Students
I have given these as gifts twice now to students, and they have been very popular. The pencil sharpeners in our school often break, and I have been told by more than one teacher that these sharpeners are a lifesaver when the classroom sharpener is out of order. The sharpeners work best with wooden pencils (without those plastic linings some pencils have nowadays). The biggest complaint is that they don't tolerate abuse; they will crack and break if someone is too hard on them. But overall, of all the little trinkets I give out to students, I always get the most positive comments about the sharpeners!

Okay for the price
Inexpensive goody bag item but not the best pencil sharpener out there. Seemed hard to keep closed when in use.

A lot of stuff for the money!
Was so glad to find a lot of single sharpeners for less than $1/each! Needed lots for bag giveaways at a kids' art event.

Great Little Sharpener
We use pencils made from recycled materials and they do not sharpen well using the "regular" sharpener. We tried using the smaller inexpensive ones and WOW they worked great. So I purchased these and they sharpened our recycled pencils perfectly!

Cute Little Sharpeners
I ordered these to go in little birthday party goodie bags and they fit the bill. I just wanted a simple sharpener and this was perfect. Easy to assemble (the kids did it!) and a perfect little sharpener. A few of the tops were cracked, but we didn't need the entire bag so it was no big deal!

I give these sharpeners to my students at the beginning of the year, and as rewards. They are the BEST sharpeners I've found in more than 20 years of teaching.
I always keep a supply handy!!

A Great Tool!
A co-worker found some small simple pencil sharpeners, but I couldn't find any. So I went on line to look at Oriental Trading. I found these pencil sharpeners. To me they are better, because it has a catcher for shavings.

Bright Pencil Sharpeners
I have purchased these sharpeners for my classroom as Christmas gifts for years. They are very sharp, very small so kids keep them in the zipper pocket of the notebook, and they hold the shavings until the end of class.
I also like the colors.
I have 90 students. It's worth it.
