I tried using my wife's jumbo lipstick sharpener, however, it does not work very well. Melissa and Doug should include one with the pencils.

We have six children, and colored pencils are our preferred coloring tool. They are less easily damaged by chewing than markers or crayons, and you can't color on yourself like with markers. Also the colors are more sophisticated. So, we have tried quite a few jumbo colored pencils for our preschoolers and toddlers. This set by Melissa & Doug is easily my favorite, and here's why:

* Triangular shape. The corners are nicely rounded so it's comfortable to grip. But, the triangular shape makes for easier gripping and keeps the pencils from rolling away.

* Long length. Many jumbo colored pencils are shorter than standard colored pencils; these are not, which means more use.

* Many vibrant colors. Gorgeous, vivid colors are better than some we've tried, and I've never seen jumbo colored pencils in a set bigger than 8 or 12.

The only thing I would change is that these pencils do not have the color names written on them. That would be helpful sometimes in distinguishing between similarly colored pencils. There are two brown ones that have an almost identical exterior, and it would be easy to pick the wrong one when trying to match previous drawing. However, these pencils are still good enough to warrant a 5-star rating, and I recommend them to any parent of preschoolers or toddlers.

These pencils are sturdy and easy for my kids to hold. Our set didn't include a vinyl case - but more importantly - how do you sharpen them? They are triangular and don't fit into our sharpener.

I had the chance to try both these colored pencils and Crayola Twistables. These are slightly better. The color of these are a bit more vibrant but still not bold enough for my tastes. I think I'm probably looking for colored pencils that would be used in drawing or artwork, which would be much more expensive and not necessarily for kids. These Melissa Doug pencils are really much better for small children, and since that's what I have, I'd say these are a good fit.

People were asking about what kind of sharpener to use for these. I bought the Maped Classic 2-Hole Metal Pencil Sharpener, Grey (006700) and it works perfectly. I get a nice, crisp, pointed pencil every time.

I got these pencils before a plane ride with my child and I was interested in the NO-ROLL feature, so that we don't loose them in the plane under the seats. I am dissapointed, the pencils are big, but almost round, and boy do they roll on the floor. These are useless to me for the purpose I bought them, otherwise they seem pretty enough, many colors and the kid loves to learn more color shades names.

We have been on the search for colored pencils that are more durable than your regular Crayola variety. The Crayola brands are always breaking and the leads fall out. My girls, 5 and 7, really prefer to use colored pencils over crayons or markers for drawing and coloring. I was also looking for a less expensive product instead of purchasing the "art" brands that cost between $1-2 per pencil. This was a very satisfactory purchase. The girls have been using them since the day they arrived. The colors are good and the leads have not broken or fallen out nearly as much as the other brands. We didn't have any problems with sharpening them as our pencil sharpener had two sizes and these fit nicely in the larger slot. I will be buying these again.

After loving Melissa and Doug crayons I thought I would give these a try for my almost three year old daughters. These pencils are great. They are thick, durable, brightly colored, and easy for little hands to grip and hold correctly. Definately worth the money. However, if you are expecting a clear vinyl case as the description states, I did not receive one. My pencils came in a an ordinary cardboard box with no case. This is not a problem for me and I honestly forgot that it stated that until I came back to write my review. But, I wanted to let you know in case it is a deciding factor for you.

I'm writing this review, first one ever, to say WTH... no sharpener... so within 5 minutes of her flattening out the pink one... this set became unusable to us...as she could just start coloring and then never be able to finish whatever she was working due to the lack of a sharpener. I love most Melissa and Doug products but this is a huge FAIL. In searching online for the only available German Kum Special Diameter sharpener for triangular pencils, which I'm gonna have to order, I see that most other triangular color pencil sellers include the sharpener...go for them in spite of your love for Melissa and Doug and buy their other products but not these pencils. The triangular sharpener requires me to now spend the same amount for the item to sharpen them and have it shipped, not an Amazon Prime item, and since I just gave these as a gift to a friends kid also, I'm gonna have to buy two so they aren't in the same boat.Kum Special Diameter Wooden Pencil Sharpener for Triangular & Hexagonal Body Pencils - 2 Hole - 8 10 mm - Black
