Like the popular Pilot FriXion pens, these Frixion color pencils are erasable. Kids will enjoy them, because they can go wild with their coloring and not worry about coloring outside the lines or picking the wrong color. Just rub with the special rubber tip and voila! Mistakes are gone. You can even use the “eraser” to create highlights and add more dimension to your drawing. Best of all, there are no messy eraser shavings. The pencil also has a blank space for writing your name.
This set includes 12 colors: Black, Blue, Brown, Green, Light Blue, Light Orange, Orange, Pink, Purple, Red, Yellow, and Yellow Green. The pencils come sharpened.
FriXion pencil lead is a thermosensitive lead that can be erased by rubbing. Interestingly, erased color reappears at temperatures below 14° F (-10° C). A freezer is cold enough to make this happen. Due to the thermosensitive nature of FriXion lead, we advise against using it for mailings, or leaving the written materials in hot cars or in environments that expose them to a lot of friction.
Children using these pencils should be supervised. The pencils should not be used on surfaces other than paper. Due to the softness of the lead, sharpening the pencils to a very sharp point may make them break easily. Drawing or writing quickly with strong pressure may result in faded color.
