* 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.
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.
