This kids pencil sharpener features an adjustable knob that allows users to choose between a sharp or blunt pencil tip when sharpening. Switch the knob one way for a sharp tip for writing or detail drawing, or the other way for a blunt tip for shading. This pencil sharpener is the choice of those who frequently use colored pencils for this very reason! Plus, its Tip Saver Technology™ prevents over sharpening, which extends pencil life and saves money. The pink transparent plastic and compact design also make this model the perfect pencil sharpener for kids. Just pop it in a pencil bag with rest of your child's school supplies. When it comes time to empty the pencil shavings, simply flip open the side to access the easy-clean saving tray.
