Pencil & Crayon Sharpeners
I have purchased these several times for our school store. The kids continue to like them--the colors and the fact that they sharpen both crayons and pencils, and have a tray to catch the shavings. Good item for the price!

Not quite was I expected but good price
The pencil sharpener did not fit tight into the shavings holder so sharpener fell out easily. Younger children will not know how to hold the unit to keep the loose sharpener in place while they use it and sharpener will get lost easily. Also, the crayon sharpener just crushed the crayon and broke it into pieces - it didn't really sharpen it.

Kept a few for myself
Used these in Samaritan's Purse Operation Christmas Child shoeboxes, snagged a couple for my own use. Easy to empty & re-assemble, Cheap & does the job.

Great then and now
I remember how much I loved these from when I was in elementary school. Now, I teach 2nd grade and my students love them. They love being able to sharpen their pencil and crayons without getting the mess all over their desk!

Not for extended use
I bought these for my fifth grade students, both math and reading class. Unfortunately with the amount of use they got they only lasted for a very short period of time. The plastic cracked inside, the blade would come loose and fall out, which certainly isn't good. For high use I would not recommend this product.

My kids really really love this item. I have bought other sharpeners from here but this is the first with a crayon one. My youngest girl (5) jsut loes using the crayon side. Great buy for the money and there are no issues when one gets lost I just give them a new one. Im thinking of buying more to give out as a holiday gift with a pencil and notepad for the classes!

Older kids (fifth graders) really appreciate a good sharpener. These sharpeners sharpen very well--and last a long time too.

These were the BEST! The kids loved that they worked for their pencils & crayons! The moms loved that the shavings stay inside! The different colors are also very cute! & the amount you get for the price AWESOME!

They will work wonders for my Nephew for his School Year.
They work great for my nephew, and he loves them a lot. It will work for his School Year.

Best handheld sharpener
These sharpeners are great for sharpening colored pencils which always seem to be testy in electric sharpeners, or the old fashioned sharpeners. The crayon sharpener "rounded" the crayon. So if you are expecting a sharp pointed crayon, don't. It works perfectly for both. Plus, it is easy to empty. Some other handheld sharpeners are difficult to open and then allow the shavings to go all over when it finally decides to come apart. This one was quite simple and easy to use.
