School Supply Shopping - BIC Review

Disclosure - free sample provided.

When I think of BIC products the first thing that comes to mind is that they are always great quality.  I have been school supply shopping for my 8 and 10 year old, and the most important thing is great quality products that are going to last.  BIC has some really neat new products that they are offering this back to school season.  They are not just great quality, but they are also fun!

BIC offers a variety of pencil options.  They now offer Xtra-fun pencils.  These are #2 pencils that are very durable.  They even have break resistant lead.  They are even non toxic.  The pencils are fun colors on the outside, but write with a regular color.  These are perfect for your child's pencil pouch.  Bic also offers Xtra-Craze #2 mechanical pencils.  These come in colorful and bright designs.  These are also headed right into my kids pencil pouches.  My son loves these pencils because his writing looks so much neater when he writes with a good quality mechanical pencil like this.

The BIC Atlantis is an ultra comfort pen.  It has a soft grip that is comfortable to hold.  It writes smoothly, and it is a nice weight.  This has a retractable ball too.  BIC has come out with something that I am amazed with.  They offer brite liner erasable highlighters.  This is a great way to fix highlighs easily.  One end of the highlighter has bright colored ink, and the other end erases.  BIC is also offering a Cristal Stylus + Pen.  This looks similar to regular BIC pens, but the other end is a stylus.  This is a great pen/stylus to keep in your purse.  It can be used on tablets and smart phones.

Last year BIC partnered with  They provided writing instruments to children in need in the classroom.  BIC is also asking people to sign a pledge to Fight for Your Write.  They want to raise awareness about the importance of writing.  This truly is an important life long skill.

You can learn more about all of the great products that BIC offers by visiting their website.  You can also connect with BIC on Facebook and Twitter.

  1. I bought their highlighters and so many products this year. At work, I always use Bic pens, they are the best. My kids like all the colorful mechanical pencil, ets.

  2. My 8th grader is obsessed with BIC mechanical pencils, they are all she'll use. We love the pens and highlighters too. Bic rocks!

  3. I wouldn't use anything else but a Bic pen. I have used them since I went to school.

  4. Oh I so think that stylus would be great for the teen stockings this Christmas. And me too, my texting is WAY off with my chunky fingers. Oh, and any pen Bic can make that is a ball point, writes smooth with soft padded grips would be great for me. I'd rather write than type anyday. Bic has helped us through 6 kids school supplies, with the last one in high school now.
