Since my daughter started her schooling I preferred Faber-Castell pencils for her. She is now an incoming Grade 2 pupil and my boy will be in the Nursery level this school year. Both of them will be using Faber-Castell pencils #7B. What I liked in those pencils? The first thing is the lead. Unlike other pencils, the lead of this brand is bright when you write something you don’t need to push it hard to see what you write. So smooth too that it goes with your hand flawlessly as you write or draw. My boy loves it so much because he tends to see clearly what he writes or draw. Materials are all non-toxic safe for children too. Lastly, it costs only 9.75 pesos per piece.
Fellow students and teachers of my daughter liked the quality of this pencil and they wanted to use the same brand.
