Your kid is special, right? He really needs to make a statement while making a statement. That's why the yellow #2 won't do this school year. Before you just pick up the best seller that every kid will have in her pencil box, take a look at some interesting options that will get your kid excited about hand-writing essays. (Do they even do that anymore, anyway?)
Here are five wacky, but amazing, writing utensils for back-to-school scribbling.
You can't get more eco than writing with a tree. Pull in the colors and fill out those coloring books while being all responsible and stuff. Also, hey, you'll actually teach your kids where the wood comes from to fuel their pencils.
Help your kid with her crib notes and purchase these very regulatory No. 2 pencils that also have fantastic factoids written right on the side. For example: Pi is 3.14592653589793238846. Where else are you going to get that great info? Not Wikipedia, I can tell you that much.
Twist it up and do your homework kids. These flexible bendy pencils will make you feel retro and your kids seem otherworldly.
It's a robot, and it's a pen. What more do you need to know?
Seriously annoying to teachers, but hella fun for the kids, pick up some invisible ink so your kid can do that whole passing notes thing without getting busted.
What's your kid's favorite pencil?
