Now that school is in session, I can rest easier and so can my wallet. So many things to buy! And I like to get my daughter something just for her every year - something that is not necessarily on the list from school. This year, I got her this electric battery-powered pencil sharpener. When she opened it up, she was so happy and immediately set to sharpening her new pencils. I stopped her after two.
The sharpener uses two AA batteries, which are easy enough to come by. But, an added boon is that when the batteries die and you perhaps do not have any more, the sharpener does not need to just collect dust. It has a hand sharpening option. Just switch it over, insert the pencil and twist.
This sharpener gives pencils a wonderfully fine tip. So far, there has not been a lot of lead breaking occurring. All in all, not a bad sharpener and perfect for little ones in elementary school who can show they are responsible with it. You know, the older ones who will not insert pens or Crayons into it.
Full disclosure: I was sent this product free of charge in exchange for an honest and unbiased review.
