I had bought a bunch of Crayola Twistable pencils for my kids, who love to color. One the one hand, the pencils were very convenient because they didn't need sharpening. On the other hand, they were only convenient for older kids who could be trusted with them...and who probably could sharpen pencils on their own, anyway. My older kids got the concept of not twisting the lead out too far, but the younger ones liked to push their luck. Inevitably, I'd find long pieces of broken off leads, and the waste would drive me crazy.

So, how do you possibly recycle those long, broken-off pieces? It just so happens that the lead size of the Twistable pencils is the same lead size that's used by the the Pentel Eight Color Automatic Pencil. This is one of the coolest clutch pencils because it holds eight different colors at once. But the price for lead for it if you buy it from Pentel directly is highway robbery. It struck me that the pencil leads looked close in size, and I substituted one from a Twistable into the Pentel. It fit perfectly, and the Pentel can use lead lengths as short as 3/4", so even leads that before seemed unusable become usable again.

Hope that helps someone!

This set has some really vibrant colors (see my photo). I agree with other reviewers that the lead is closer to a crayon than a true colored pencil. It is hard to get a really sharp point, so these aren't great for finely detailed coloring. But my 12 yr old daughter enjoys using them with the adult coloring books that have larger open areas.

I'm the one who likes the Crayola Twistables! My kids prefer traditional colored pencils. I use Twistables to illustrate for work and in my journal. Crayola products render more saturated color and the leads and crayons are softer which means more color is left on the paper with less effort. As a design professional, I prefer Prismacolors for color drawing, but Twistables pack better when its time for drawing on the go, and I don't tense up as much about losing or misplacing them.

I think my children prefer the colored pencils because they are more forgiving when dropped. Once the crayon portion of a Twistable dislodges from the base, the product is useless. Their first pack of Twistables didn't last as long as they would have liked. If you have young children and supervise their drawing time, this probably won't be an issue.

Tips and tricks:

- Show children how to expose only a small amount of crayon at a time and never extend it fully out of the casing.

- To get a fine point, hold the Twistable at shallow angle. Scrape the tip along a piece of paper while rotating the pencil.

- Encourage older children to blend colors, warm up the product by drawing on scrap paper first. Then rub the pencil back and forth lightly on your art work in layers.

- The white pencil looks great on black construction paper and so do the blues and oranges.

- Help young coloring book artists use Twistables for small areas like eyeballs, belts, and shoes. Demonstrate how crayons are good for large areas like lawns, oceans, and the sky.

These are great. I thought the points may be too thick for small areas but they work just fine on tiny areas. Great for shading, just press harder for darker areas or go over and over. Lighter touch for a lighter color. Good color selection.

The colors are vibrant and there is an assortment of fabulous colors. However, the waxy material is more crayon-like than a pencil. Unlike regular crayons, I had to use more force than I wished to exert in order to achieve the consistent vibrant color that I sought. I found it impossible to achieve any shading from dark to light. I don't completely regret my purchase, as it is another medium for kids to experiment and be creative, but I can't highly recommend this as a TOY because you have to press hard to get good results, and I can't recommend this as an ART material because you can't achieve the results that can be achieved with real pencils.

To refute all the negative reviews I must say these are great for coloring. I don't understand how anyone could be dissatisfied with these or what kind of deliberate force would be necessary to break the lead inside the barrel. One comment said they twisted the lead too far out and then it broke, leaving the assumption the lead couldn't be retracted. In fact, they can be, just twist them back if they're twisted too far out.

I find these great to work with. I wish they were available with more colors, but they are very bendable. They are sort of a mix between a colored pencil and a crayon in that they have a very slight crayon-type finish. I like this because it let's you lay down a fine line of color that is not obliterated by a second color. After a little experimentation you will see the benefit. Regular pencils can't achieve this effect.

These colors are also bendable if you use light strokes. Again, you can work with them to find out how to achieve numerous effects. It is also possible to create bold, vibrant colors, and there are sufficient colors to achieve beautiful shading. I have recently rediscovered the joy of coloring and find these pencils perfect for that purpose.

Others have listed the colors that come in the set. In case there is still doubt, there is a vibrant red. The only color without sufficient range, in my opinion, is blue. There are only 2 shades of blue, but neither are a true blue. Both tend toward the slightest blue-green shade. They are pretty colors, but there is also no light blue. There is a pretty shade of aqua.

The size of lead is durable but also small enough to make a fine line. They never need to be sharpened. I have used other brands of colored pencils as well as pastels, but this is definitely my favorite for coloring. I have several Creative Haven coloring books as well as some mandalas. These pencils are perfect for all of them.
