    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!!

    I was looking forward to using these pencils but was very disappointed when I did! First of all they don't have a clip. I like to clip my pencils on my monthly planner. The real problem with the pencil is the point. It is a thicker point than I like to use. You can not tell from looking at the package. It says a #2 pencil but doesn't say it is a dull point.
    I am not affiliated with this product in any way. I use a lot of mechanical pencils but I would not recommend these. They are too thick more like the pencils I used in Kindergarten, especially the shape!

    I been looking for a pencil that doesn't get broken by he's hand pressing on the lead. He's still working on he's fine motor skills. He thinks is a big boy cuz he uses a lead pencil like he's big sister.

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

    My 3rd and 4th grader love these. They are just a different style of mechanical pencil. The only drawback is that the lead size is different, and I don't know where to get it which makes them difficult to refill.

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

          I bought these for my Special Ed student who use grips for proper placement. I was tired of removing the grips from the large lead pencil each time they needed sharpening, These pencil provide more confidence and less interruption. Furthermore the students enjoy using them. I have not had any problems with lead abuse. Since purchase I have only used one of the refill leads

          Excellent mechanical pencils!

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

          My 11 year old is required to use mechanical pencils for one of his classes. He typically presses too hard and snaps the lead of the average mechanical pencil. I found these by chance -- was looking for the thickest lead I could find. We've been so pleased with these -- he's made it through most of the school year and still has half the pack! Best mechanical pencil for young students!
          Will be looking for these again when it's time to restock for next year's classes, and will happily recommend to classmates.

          I am a teacher and sharp pencils or shall I say pencils with points seem to be difficult to come by - These are great for elem age students with the thicker lead which doesnt break as easily...they love them - and I do too! Thanks!
