While shopping recently I notice the store I was in did not have my favorite mechanical pencil made by PaperMate so instead I ended up buying the Inc. Soft Scripto Mechanical Pencils that are obviously designed for teenagers. However, I like mechanical pencils because I don't have to worry about finding a pencil sharpener so I bought these.
The Soft Scripto Mechanical Pencil is plastic with colorful designs on them. The blue one has a skateboarding scene on it, the green one has monkeys on it and says "go bananas", the red one has guitars on it and "rock on" is printed on it, and the purple one has winged hearts on it. These pencils have foam cushion grips on them to make writing more comfortable. These grips can be removed. The Soft Scripto Mechanical Pencil is a No. 2 pencil with 0.7 mm lead. This pencil is advertised to have break resistant lead and a smudge proof eraser. The lead on these did seem to be a little sturdier than other mechanical pencils. They come six pencils in a pack.
The Soft Scripto Mechanical Pencil seems to have a little less lead than most mechanical pencils but other than that they seem to work as well as most mechanical pencils. I think young people would really like these pencils with their colorful designs and spongy cushion grip.
