I am a sucker for pencil boxes and tins, and this one is perfect! It’s slim, well made and the contents are great! I have been using plastic highlighters…not knowing about the yellow wax pencils…what an eye-opener! I loved mine so much, I have bought more to give as gifts. Thank you!
I loved the first one I bought. The quality was perfection. When the blue color resurfaced, I grabbed one for my grandaughter to gift her with the Story Journals. It’s so nice to see creative tools that are not plastic, toxic, and linked to movies and cartoons.
I got 2024 calendar, pencil pack and spare pencils. All are of high quality.
This is a little step towards cleaning up the environment, or at least not making it any junkier than it already is. I give 4 stars because I’m not totally sure it was worth the price but I like the concept, and also because it looks as if their future business plans are a bit awry.
Your thoughts on this are valid and heard. For a little perspective, it is quite costly (which is why we won't be offering this product again once this round sells out) to bring together 6 different elements (the tin we had custom made to fit the pencil, the unpainted Cedar Pointe Pencil from Generals Pencil Co., the wax peel highlighter, the M+R German Pencil Sharpener with 2 built in replacement blades, the natural rubber eraser imported from the Czech Republic (they have been making these for 125+ years), and the wool liner custom made to fit the tin, and the custom natural rubber band to keep the whole thing secure in a bag or backpack. We have all of these elements packed by hand here in the U.S. into a little set and bagged for 100% plastic free shipping to our customers. The labor and complications of sets composed of products from multiple suppliers is why you will not find a product like this anywhere - literally nowhere.
As to our company being a bit 'awry', I just want to clarify that we are winding things down at the end of this year in order to transition from BCorp to non-profit in order to better serve schools (our original mission). Ecommerce isn't the right platform for the work we do, but we will still invite customers to purchase from us 1x per year when we place bulk school orders. Happy to answer any questions / provide information and thank you for taking the time to leave a review - we appreciate it! :) Heather + Nikki, founders
LOVE IT! It’s colorful, compact, and sturdy. Holds up well in a backpack or travel bag and nicely fits needed pencils, erasers, pens, etc. I especially love the zero plastic element it offers!! Highly recommend for a sustainable school/office supply.
