    I love mechanical pencils for ease of use and the fact that I don't have to get up and sharpen a pencil every time you turn around. I prefer a fatter lead than the 0.5 & 0.7. I usually buy the 0.9 lead, but then I saw the 1.3 and thought I had died and gone to heaven. But then I opened the package and felt the shape of the pencil in my hand and the glide of the lead on the page and WOW! I LOVE IT!! I am hooked. The only thing now is I am struggling to find just the lead. I did find the pack of pencils with the lead, which is great, but next is to find the packs of lead. Thanks for such a great pencil!!

    " Easy Rebate" program is a disaster. First they told me I had incorrect model number on a shreader - wrong ! Then they send a post card saying purchase date was outside rebate period. - wrong !! Then they try to tell me rebate is $ 10 and not $ 30 - Wrong !!! I showed them in writing that they were wrong and they offered a $ 20 in store coupon but I had to buy something else. I returned shredder and I WILL NEVER BUY ANOTHER ITEM FROM STAPLES. Worst customer service I ever experienced. Cancelled my rewards program and will never step my foot in any Staples store ever again.

    Comments about Paper Mate Papermate Mates Mechanical Pencil Starter Set, Assorted:

    My kids love the sturdy thick leads in these mechanical pencils. They are much more practical than most other flimsy mechanical pencils that have thin leads and wimpy erasers that kids use up and break immediately. The triangle shape is as comfortable for an adult to hold as a child. They actually last long enough to be able to refill, which has not been the case for many other pencils we have tried.

          Great starter set. You won't want to go back to standard pencils after this. Saves room in my daughter's school supply set

          Comments about Paper Mate Papermate Mates Mechanical Pencil Starter Set, Assorted:

          I have two elementary kids and they both love these pencils. They both are very hard on pencils and this new size of lead they say is impossible to break. I just wish that I could buy the extra lead separately at the store!
