Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by hopeky94 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!

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.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by MrsKrimbrook 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!

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by RoomMom42 Okay for the price
Inexpensive goody bag item but not the best pencil sharpener out there. Seemed hard to keep closed when in use.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by artgal464 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.

by FundraisingGirl Great to Pair with Pencils
We ordered custom pencils from OT and got these to go with them. Folks were more inclined to take a pencil if they had an immediate way to sharpen it!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by JNanaBanana Good sharpeners for Operation Christmas Child shoeboxes.
Small pencil sharpeners that work! I tried one to sharpen generic brand colored pencils to evaluate their quality. It sharpened them nicely. So, good buys all around.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by jezcat723 packaged well, average quality, but for the money - good!
We purchased these for a community event project. We didn't have a lot to spend. Grateful that OTC had what we needed. They were packaged very well so they weren't rattling around in shipment.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Smiley536 Sharpens well. The covers fell off once they came out of the box. Just a little tedious to put back on.
Sharpens well. The covers fell off once they came out of the box. Just a little tedious to put back on. Bright colors!

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by MegBeth tops don't stay on
These arrived with many of the tops loose from the sharpener. I was not able to put them on to stay so threw the tops out.
