My girl by nature loves to draw very much at home and school. The main object of her creations is mostly little girls with different faces, hair styles, clothing and accessories. Even her teachers are appreciative of her drawings and actually she won one time the grand prize for Faber-Castell drawing contest held in their school last year.
Colored pencils are one of her tools in drawing. She uses it at home and sometimes at school during their Art subject. I heard one time that she's telling her mom that her colored pencils' shades are too light and can barely see. I told wife then to look for a good shades of colored pencils.
Wife brought this Maped's Color' Peps colored pencils. It has 12 different shades of colored pencils housed in a sturdy casing. At first I saw it I liked the case first but then I never forget to ask about the shades. My daughter is very happy because the shades are great now and she loves the casing too. The packaging is brilliant. If not in use, the case body is up, pencils inside and cover is in place. On the other hand, the case is adjustable that my daughter can pull the body (corrugated portion) down to enable the pencils be more accessible. Or she can just remove the cover and get a pencil.
If you too have kids who loves to draw with the use of colored pencils then this brand is highly recommendable.
