The pencils are great. Prismacolor always creates the highest quality pencils. I am so happy to find that they made a more affordable product for young artists. I bought these as a Christmas present for my niece. She is going to be excited to finally have a set of high quality professional pencils. The only issue I found was that the packaging in the photo doesn't match the product I received. The package I received has the same pencils however it is clear plastic and looks kind of cheap. Nevertheless, the pencils are great. I would have preferred to have had the packing as pictured.

I bought these for my 10 year old son, he hasn't used them yet as they are for Christmas but I opened the box and tried a few of the pencils. The quality seems great, you don't have to press very hard to achieve a rich even color on the paper. Good assortment of colors. They look like they will last a long time and give lots of pleasure to artists of any age. Great value and speedy delivery.
The Package of colored pencils I received had been opened or damaged before I got them.

The product is great. The packaging was bad. the pencils were all rolling around in the box with broken tips. They were not in bubble wrap or anything except a large box. The original packaging for the pencils was not taped and therefore the pencils were all out rolling around in the shipping box. Bad packaging. Could not believe they were not at lest wrapped in bubble wrap.
These are great pencils for me and my kids. They sharpen much better and give a much better color. My kids are always drawing and these are a better quality pencil that the usual pencils out there on the market.
- How accurate was the sizing? N/A
My daughter loves these pencils, and when she saw the prices, she went crazy! I ordered them on the sly and will give them to her for a Valentines Day present. She raves about the quality of the Prismacolor Scholar pencils and I was glad to see them here.
