Zebra Pen offers a large selection of writing instruments. They make ball point pens, gel pens, mechanical pencils and more They sent me some of their Cadoozles to try out. Cadoozles are a mechanical pencil.
Cadoozles are a little different style than most mechanical pencils I've seen. They seem a little shorter, but they are perfect for little hands. They also look more like a real pencil than most mechanical pencils I've seen. My 5 and 7 year old had a really great time using them. They found that they are easy to write with. They also looked like they were comfortable for their little hands to hold. The eraser also works great. I personally hate when I have a good pencil, but the erasure is terrible. These can be reused if you refill them with 0.7 lead. I like the thickness of the lead because it writes nice and fine. The Cadoozles come in some really cute designs too that are fun for kids. Each of my kids had a favorite design that they liked. My daughter loved the ice cream Cadoozle and my son liked the sports themed one.
Where can you buy Cadoozles? These are available at Office Max, Staples, Office Depot, Kmart, Walmart and more. These retail for about 41 cents a pencil which is pretty reasonable!
