    The packaging says it all -- "World's Best Pencil" -- because it is TRUE!

    As a teacher, I go through boxes and boxes of pencils each school year, and I've noticed that the quality of most brands has been greatly diminishing in recent years. If I sharpen a hundred pencils a day (and often do!), the vast majority of them will have the lead just fall out with each attempt to get a nice point unless they are Ticonderoga. I end up throwing so many away because the lead just continues to fall out either while sharpening it over and over, or once it is used a time or two! It's like the lead is breaking within the pencil somehow.

    If the other penciil brands do manage to keep their lead intact, all too frequently it is not centered within the wood, so you have more wood around one side of the point than the other--and end up "writing" with wood and not lead when held at a certain angle once it gets to a particular length!

    Ticonderoga pencils are the best, by far, all around, and hands down! They definitely cost more, but they are well worth the price. Don't bother spending "less" on inferior brands--you'll end up having to purchase far more product to get far less quality in the long run. Buy the best!

    Comments about Dixon Ticonderoga #2 Soft Pencil, Yellow:

    I purchased these pencils for some high school students who stated that they wanted this bra.d because the lead wrote better and they sharpened without chewing the pencil up and breaking the lead as you sharpened it. Also they had a good clean eraser which left no smudges.

    World's Best Pencisl

    By Back to school supplies

    Comments about Dixon Ticonderoga #2 Soft Pencil, Yellow:

    As a fourth and fiftth grade teacher, these pencils are given to students at the first of the school year, They are told that these are the "World's Best Pencils" (after all, the box says so), and that since they are using them, there are expectations that they will do their best work. This is done as a method of encouraging them and letting them know that their teachers think they are capable and have high expectations for their learning. The pencils are purchased from my own resources, but I think it is worthwhile if the students know they are valued and capable.

    Simply the Best!!!

    Comments about Dixon Ticonderoga #2 Soft Pencil, Yellow:

    If you want to make your child's teacher happy, purchase these pencils and donate them. If you want to make the teacher even happier, sharpen them before donating them. We donate between 8 and 10 boxes of these each school year. We send them in during the school year and we always sharpen them first so they are all ready to be used. Teachers appreciate that extra touch. We have not met a teacher yet that does not love these pencils. It is by far, their all time favorite brand! We highly, highly recommend these. We are amazed at how many pencils are needed during the school year and try not to analyze why. We choose to support the teacher and make her/his job easier by making sure the students have these. You will not regret purchasing these. They are easy to sharpen and will make you popular with the teachers. With how many we purchase and donate each school year, are we pencil pushers?!
