Faber-Castell's Triangular Coloured EcoPencils are great for young artists! The easy to hold ergonomic shape are easier to hold and won't roll off the table or desk. These pencils feature highly pigmented leads that blend easily and do no flake on paper. Faber-Castell's colour pencils are made from reforested wood and are designed to last! Unlike many other coloured pencils, the leads are glued the entire length of the pencil barrel, making them easier to sharpen (leads will not fall out) and are break resistant. These pencils are non-toxic, acid free and conform to ASTM D-4236. Great for ages 5+.
