Ferby Triangular Colored Pencils
Our price: $18.50
Chunky and fun, the ergonomically superior Lyra Ferby colored pencils are vibrant, apply smoothly, and blend well. Lasting 3-4 times longer than standard colored pencils, so there is less frequent sharpening, the super thick, 6.25mm cores are break-resistant and made from highly-pigmented, natural waxes.
A favorite writing tool of occupational therapists, the sturdy fat profile of the Lyra Ferby pencils makes them especially fitting for smaller children or left-handers. This ideal beginner’s pencil, with its triangular shape is comfortable to hold and less tiring to use.
Okay, so I realize that sounds weird but the moment you take them out of the box you smell the woody deliciousness! They feel really nice in your hands, and my 5 year old has been enjoying all the colors. I was hoping that the bumps and thickness of these pencils would help to correct his pencil grip, but we ended up needing to purchase some pencil grips to go with his erasable pencils. However, we still use these everyday for projects and coloring.
We’ve used them a lot but not something I needed to spend on.
Ferby Triangular Colored Pencils are good, solid pencils with good color. We wrote the colors on the side in pencil for easier recognition, otherwise you have to look at the tip or color a bit to see what color you have. I plan to make these last through multiple children. In the Math-U-See primer, we use a bit of green and blue to make the mint color, because that is as close as we can get. My daughter thinks it's pretty funny to mix the colors. This goes good with the kindergarten kit because you certainly use them a lot!
If I had known how to customize the kit from the beginning, I wouldn't have gotten these honestly. They're fine, just not necessary since we get all our school supplies during school supply time for pennies.
These go great with the Math U See Primer! In the lessons you have to color on the page the same color as the blocks, and there’s almost a color pencil for every block. The only one there isn’t is the “mint” color for 9. But either way these pencils are awesome! They make writing and worksheets more exciting!
