Classroom Friendly Pencil Sharpener {GIVEAWAY}

A while back I posted on my Facebook page asking for recommendations for a pencil sharpener that actually a) works, and b) lasts.

I got lots of advice, but I noticed several people kept mentioning the Classroom Friendly Pencil Sharpener. I had never heard of these before, so I clicked the link.

Hm. I've never seen a pencil sharpener like it, so I watched this short 50 second video. Intriguing!

I emailed the owner of the company and asked if I could review the sharpener for my audience and he promptly sent me one.

As soon as we got it in the mail, my kids wanted to try it out. Now, it is usually the death sentence for any ordinary pencil sharpener to let a kid operate it, but this one seemed up to the task.

It took a few uses for them to get used to holding the sharpener instead of the pencil (see video above), but once they go that down, they LOVED it!

The pencils get SO sharp! The kids were so amazed they went on somewhat of a sharpening spree, and now we may have a few, or more like 58, freshly sharpened pencils!

    Does it work for completely round pencils?

  4. I would love a pencil sharpener that actually does that. sharpen pencils well.

  5. I’d love to win this! we don’t have one yet :) thanks for the giveaway!

  6. haha this must be what I have been looking for! I need a pencil sharpener badly and one that works! May I ask if your older children use mechanical pencils or if they still use regular wooden pencils? I have a love/hate relationship with all pencils that are being used by children, mostly because of the sharpening aspect and breaking lead and losing them and dropping them on the floor 1.3million times a day! Thanks for the give away!

  7. What a good sharpener… I love super sharp sharpened pencils. Thanks for the giveaway!

  8. Nice. I am impressed. Not a facebooker, but good luck all & thanks for the giveaway.

  10. This looks awesome! My kids have been through three sharpeners and at times I’ve resorted to using my pocket knife to put a point on a pencil so someone could finish their work.
