Style Name: Pack of 50 Pencils Verified Purchase
I bought these for my daughter when I bought her some of those very nice Dover coloring books. I bought myself the biggest PrismaColor Thick Lead Art Pencils, Assorted Colors, 120/Set SAN03602 set a year or so ago-- it's expensive, but they are great pencils.

If you know what you're looking for then good pencils are important. For instance, the lead has to be strong and not break throughout the pencil if you drop it. The pencil lead has to be soft enough to get good coverage and must be blendable with other colors. Crayola, for instance, makes really bad brittle pencils. . . if you drop one, the lead is usually broken all the way through the pencil and you'll be sharpening the tip often.

Now I didn't want to buy my little one Prismacolors because of the price. But, I didn't want to buy her bad pencils like Crayola or RoseArt just because of the price. I remembered how high quality Prang watercolors were and thought I'd look to see what they made in pencils.

These are so excellent. I would say they are AS good as the expensive Prismacolors. no kidding. They are wonderful pencils with beautiful vibrant color, strong-- the lead is the perfect hardness/softness (what would you call this?). And, they are really inexpensive which is a huge surprise.

We bought the set of 48 but was sent a set of 50-- the 48 set with 2 bonus pencils.

I would recommend these for school and home and, if you are thinking of trying a new pencil for professional work, I'd recommend them for that, too. I am not a colored pencil artist, but I have used pencils professionally and I just cannot see any difference in these and the Prismacolor.

Style Name: Pack of 50 Pencils Verified Purchase
(Product review updated February 2014): This Prang set of 50 colored pencils, 3.3mm cores (no. 22480) is a good example of an art product both children and adults can enjoy. When someone of any age can purchase around four dozen pencils that are of reasonably good quality and cover a realistic palette for under $15, marvelous things can happen. Just grab a color and go -- or grab a similar color and see how they differ and how they are alike. In essence these Prangs are the more serious end of colored pencils with a more realistic (or, if you will) less deliberately juvenile vivid palatte than, say, Cra-Z-Art, RoseArt or Crayola. Their palette is indeed closer to Dixon Ticonderoga Erasable Checking Pencils (q.v.), Col-Erase or even the very hard-leaded Mercur brand.

PROS: Colored Pencils come pre-sharpened.
A good compromise between hard-leadedness; i.e., using the tip of the lead (more accurately, "core" or "color core") to draw solid lines versus shading ability (using the side of that core in a dashed, notched, hooked or swirling motion designed not to leave the strongest possible hue but allow more texture and subtlety).
Sharpens well but USE A HAND SHARPENER, even a cheap two-holer! You'll quickly get the hang of sharpening techniques with such a simple tool: center the core and use a gentle touch for harder tip and little side cedar (thus reducing shading efficacy), or apply more pressure, perhaps in a larger-than-necessary hole (throwing the pencil-sharpening a little out of round for more exposed core on the side).
Good color palette, works harmoniously with itself.
Round barrels are easier on the finger than the more traditional "woodcased" (hexagonal) style of pencil.

Nice colored pencil set! My set had 2 Warm Gray pencils in it for some reason and 2 Cocoa pencils. I have no clue what I'm missing but here's a picture of the colors (DON'T look at the color pencil names themselves, I just copied a template from a Prismacolor website). The names written in black ink are the names on the pencils. Notice this set includes 4 Neon pencils in the mix. Here's a comparison to the 50 count set from Crayola too. My favorite budget set is the Faber-Castell set with the koala on it (but it's only a 24 ct set). There's also a Faber-Castell Bi-Colored pencil set with 18 pencils, so you get 36 colors. Only possible issue with that set is you have "half" as much color per pencil. There is a 48 ct set that can be purchased from Amazon from other countries, but there's the wait..

Style Name: Pack of 12 Pencils
This is a long review, but if you want product review only, the first two paragraphs will do. -- Prang is a good old American brand for watercolors and crayons as well as colored pencils. Their manufacture has shifted to Mexico and however one feels about that in terms of the NAFTA economy, these colored pencils of high quality. At the time of this writing, the 12-count box is cheap (noticeably less than half the cost of the 24-count box) and the color names are quite similar to Crayola's perennial 12-count box, even though the pencils themselves have a somewhat deeper palette (see below).

Twelve- and twenty-four count colored pencils aimed at grammar school kids and up are pretty much a staple now. These Prangs are a little more "mature" (deeper-hued, less vivid) in color than the Crayola's I've seen, though still any twelve-pack will be restricted to primaries, secondaries, and a few neutrals. If crayons were moods, I would count Cra-Z-Art colored pencils the most incorrigibly optimistic, followed with lessened degrees of vividness by Crayola and RoseArt. To the "right" or more realistic side of the divide I would put Prang, along probably with Col-Erase and Mercur. In other words, the Prangs in my experience have a higher "veri-simillitude" (corresponding-to-reality) quotient than many equivalent Crayola. Crayola's evergreen shade looks more like a dark-green leafed tree, while the evergreen of these Prangs looks much more like pine needles to me. For little kids, especially in settings that stress conformity (the second-grade Required Supplies sheet comes to mind), the purchaser might want to go with the flow if teacher has mandated a more kiddie-oriented brand.
