Work great for beginner students
from Lafayette LA
These are great for my art 1 students. The only draw back is the "red" pencil is pink in color but draws red. It makes for some confused students always asking where the Red is.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

These are great for the price, the colors are wonderful.
I am very disappointed in the Blick color pencils. I work with a lot of children and while the price was good for the class pack, I found the quality lacking. They don't sharpen well, the leads break so much that we have had pencils sharpened to have the original size in one use. I thought it might be the sharpener the first time this happened but I have used a dozen different sharpeners and they break constantly. I had to get one student a different brand color pencil of the color he was using just so he could finish his work as the Blick pencil lead just broke off in chunks every time we tried to get color to show. I am not talking about sharpening to a point, I am talking about just getting color to show and be usable! I order a lot from Blick, use their brands in other materials but will not buy these again.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Colors on Pencils Don't Match Words On Them
from Hinesville GA
I bought a set of 12 for my son before purchasing for my school. After returning to Blick to add several more to his collection, I ordered a class set. I'm actually disappointed. The one labeled red is a salmon color. Another is labeled red orange, but the barrel is painted a scarlet color. The orange looks red orange. I'm not sure if I got an old box or what, but the entire matter described above is confusing for both me and my students. With no funds left in my art budget, we will be making do for now. I'm tempted to actually take them into a store to ask a manager's opinion. Wish me luck.

Great colored pencil set
My daughter has been using these non-stop since she received them as a birthday present for her fifth birthday.
Great quality, great colors

I love these for students. The colors are good, nothing too artificial, and lots of pigment.

I kept a complete set of these lovely pencils and donated the rest to the local school system where my grandchildren attend to the Art Teacher.
red is not a true red!

Your selection of reds are pretty bad....the rest of the pack is pretty good.
