With a rich heritage, and origins dating back to 1795, the Dixon Ticonderoga Company throughout history has made its mark through quality, integrity, respect and perseverance. Today Dixon Ticonderoga continues to make its mark manufacturing and marketing writing instruments, art supplies and tools for self-expression. The Ticonderoga Beginners Pencils are the teacher’s choice for that important first number 2 pencil. An extra-large diameter (13/32 inch) round pencil offers just the right fit for easier control that small hands need. The thick, break resistant number 2 core delivers bold, black lines. PMA certified nontoxic, these primary school pencils are available with latex-free erasers. More than a writing and art products company, Dixon Ticonderoga empowers people to take conscious and subliminal thoughts, facts, ideas and dreams, and preserve them using tools that are simply extensions of themselves.
Top Customer Reviews
My son has broken the tip of these pencils only a couple times.
The larger grip helps him form his letters more correctly, which helps, but doesn't solve, his messy handwriting.
The initial cost is more than buying other brands of pencils but in the long run it has been less expensive for us because we are not buying dozens of pencils every week.
My son is still able to rip off the eraser and the metal band which holds the eraser but I'm sure there isn't a pencil around that could prevent that from happening.
I recommend the Ticonderoga brand to everyone and the larger Primary size to anyone who needs better control with forming their letters more neatly.
P.S. I will also be using these with my school-age kids, whom I homeschool!
-Can be used on standardized tests, both for bubble-filling and for scratch paper (at least for GRE/GMAT/LSAT/MCAT)
-Large size is easier to hold, meaning reduced cramps from long periods of use
-Eraser is about twice the size of a standard #2 pencil
-Round shape has fewer stress points than the hexagonal pencils, so writing for a long time doesn't cause pain from pressure
-Because lead is larger, and I prefer to use a very sharp pencil, there is more wasted lead
-Might not fit in some standard sharpeners
I do love mechanical pencils, but if you have to have a #2, this is definitely the way to go!
