5-Star Review / 4.8-Star Overall
Pros: Fun, Comfortable Grip, Good Color Variety, Glides Smoothly
Best Uses: School, Fun With Kids, Art
Review: "We purchased these because we used them in an art class. We were "sold" once we used them in class. We got a set for home. These pencils are not only beautiful; they are functional. I think any age child would like them. They are thicker than a regular pencil, and the coverage they make is almost like a crayon. It's brilliant and precise. They have wood on the outside with cute figures all over them, like the green is covered with little frogs. My dad was so impressed; he bought seven more for all his other grandchildren, ranging in ages from 9-16! Nice, nice product."
Bottom Line: "Yes, I would recommend this to a friend."
These chubby, hexagon-shaped pencils are easy for small hands to use. Smooth application and extra thick tips. 8 colors: black, blue, brown, green, orange, purple, red and yellow. 7/16" Dia.

5-Star Review / 5-Star Overall
Best Uses: Travel, Young Children, Indoor Use
Review: "We searched for mats for our daughters' preschool locally but couldn't locate any so we ordered a couple online. They were cheap and flimsy and weren't any better than laying down on a blanket. We finally found these ones online and are quite pleased. They are attractive (bright colors), and there's a good thickness to them, so our girls actually had some padding between them and the floor at nap time. Definitely recommend these!"
Bottom Line: "Yes, I would recommend this to a friend."
The Rainbow Designer Mat is made with super soft vinyl covering and is polyester-backed for added strength and comfort. Durable inside seam construction. Mat measures 48"L x 22"W x 2" thick.
