I’ve previously exposed my obsession with art supplies. We still love these crayons and these pencils for kids and these pencils for fancy kids or serious artists. But these Lyra pencils looked so fun.
As far as design, I love the look, but it has a practical purpose. They’re slightly triangular so that they don’t roll, and the spots are drilled through the paint and into the wood to help with grip.
As far as cost, they’re significantly less expensive than Prismacolors, and the color is smoother and brighter than your average kiddie colored pencil.
These even come with a place to write your name, if you’ve captured a tiny fairy as your slave who’s capable of writing so small.
I’m grudgingly letting the girls try them. If you don’t have them nearby, you can find them here.
