That Fabulous Pencil Sharpener!!!

Hey guys, how's it going?

It's official, I go back to work next week,

and the kiddos come to school two weeks from today!!!!!

EEK!!!!!!!

But I digress.....



Now, I know you've probably seen these pencil sharpeners all over the place, as I have.



You also probably know that there are some pencils that even the best

pencil sharpeners can NOT sharpen. Needless to say, I was pretty skeptical!!



So, I had the chance to review this Classroom Friendly Sharpener from 


Once I received it in the mail, I couldn't wait to open it and see what all the fuss was about!



At first, I wasn't sure how I should proceed.

I know what you're thinking, stick the pencil in and give it a go!




Umm....no go!!!  

There aren't any directions included, so I started moving parts, 

and then I thought that I broke it!! Oh, no!!


Then I realized that the front part was supposed to come out, lol!!

That's when you stick the pencil in!!


The clamps hold the pencil in place, and you just start turning!

I must say, I was totally shocked.


Now, I purposely used some cheap pencils, just to see what would happen.

I hate those pencils, because the electric pencil sharpener just doesn't sharpen them right!!

You know what I mean, the lead is about to fall out,

one side is clearly sharpened while the other side isn't,

and it's just a mess all around!!



So, I got to sharpening, and let me tell you, 

the pencil sharpener is very quiet, AND you can tell when the pencil

is ready, so that you don't over sharpen.



Well, let me show you how they turned out...


Like, is that amazing or what?!?!?!?!?!?!

They don't look like they're ready to break, one side isn't sharpened more than the other,

and they write perfectly!!!

I was so pleased with this pencil sharpener, I think I need to buy more!!!

If you're looking for a pencil sharpener, then look for further!!
