Great coloring pencils for kids
Comments about Lyra Color Giant Sets:
I bought these color pencils one-by-one for my children who used them all throughout their childhood and teen years. Then after they went off to college, I got a job as a museum educator and donated my children's color pencils and bought more. We are now happily using them whenever we have art projects with our school tours. These color pencils are easy and comfortable to use, lay down color well and fast, their leads rarely break, and they last a very long time. Parents and teachers always admire them and ask me where to buy them. They do cost more than most color pencils, but considering how well and how long they have lasted with the hundreds of school kids who use them, I think they are well worth the money. I only wish that Blick also sold these as singles since they do come in a lot more than 18 colors.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Love love love
from Atlanta Ga
Great pencils love them and plan to buy more. Don't think they are only for children bc of their size. Great product.

Based on the price, I expected them to work better. The lay-down is smooth but they don't blend or layer well. I don't see the point of the thick core, it blocks your view. The colors are vibrant, but you'd be better off buying something else.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
Merchant response: We're sorry to hear that these colored pencils aren't performing as you expected. One of our Customer Care Agents will be in touch to see how we can help.

A nice addition to the pencil colour palette. They are large pencils, but give great colour.
FANTASTIC! A must have for colored pencil artists
from North Versailles, PA
OK, a must have IF you like to use metallic colors in your work, but I expect that the regular colors are just as good (and plan to order them too!). These are easy to hold, and from my quick test (as soon as I ripped open the box on delivery today)they lay down color fast and richly.

Unique addition to my collection!
Great texture and coverage. The size of the lead facilitates in covering bigger areas with color while the pencil is easier to handle because of its size.

Love LYRA Color Giants
from Algonquin, IL
Blick offers a VERY reasonable price on their pencils. We've used these for our kids for many years and it was nice to find a place to purchase replacesments. They are so well priced I will likely buy a second set. Thank you, Jennifer B

Giant Pencils = terrific color
from Chicagoland, IL
I truly wish there were more colors. The giant pencils are better for arthritic hands like mine, and their color is true, sensitive to pressure allowing slight or bold color. I recommend these fun pencils for children and adults, and would ask Lyra to consider new colors, especially metallic. The pencils have been a happy surprise all around.Blessings, Virginia Bono
