This kids electric sharpener is colorful, compact, and convenient! Powered by 2 AA batteries, it can go anywhere and fit into pencil bags, backpacks, desk drawers and more. Should this kids sharpener ever become dull, use the included replacement cutter to make it like new again. It's easy to replace, just open the hinged shavings tray and swap out the cutter cartridges. Because the shavings tray is made of translucent green plastic, you can easily see when it is full and needs to be emptied. For added safety, a built-in safety switch prevents operation when the electric sharpener is opened. Great for classrooms and home settings alike, this model is compatible with both standard and colored pencils.
