Up until now we’ve been using Prismacolor pencils, which although very high quality, their soft, blendable lead breaks easily. Plus they’re too expensive to keep buying for homeschool Dover coloring book use. So after months of hearing how fabulous the Lyra pencils were, I decided to finally order them!

We ordered from this super cute store named Nova Natural Toys & Crafts and I got the set of 12 short ferbies. Unfortunately, the adorable snake pencil holder does not come with the pencils, it is separate. He does hold all 12 of our pencils, and he’s such a cutie. 🙂

I promised some mamas I would do a review on colored pencils, so look forward to a comparison on how well they write, how break-resistant the leads are, and more. 🙂

And I just checked, our first picture drawn with our new Ferbies is a toilet! Nice, Satori… 😉 She was making invitations to her party complete with balloons, to grandma and grandpa, Peyton’s family, and Uncle Justin/Seneca.
