Communication is the most important skill you can have today. From public speaking to texting, and everything in between, it's important to have communication skills, skills which should be taught from an early age. Writing is one of our most important forms of communication, and I'm happy to say that Zebra Pen is helping little writer's achieve big things with their Cadoozles!
A funny name; a great product. We've all used mechanical pencils, but they break easily and aren't very attractive. Cadoozles are something completely new and different! They are mechanical pencils that look just like regular pencils, except they are so much more colorful and fun!
Cadoozles are perfect for little hands, and any elementary schooler would be lucky to have these. They are smaller than normal pencils, and are easy to hold due to their smooth body and ridged edges. They are indeed mechanical pencils, so instead of sharpening them kids just click the eraser! The eraser is real as well, and actually erases. Sharpening pencils can be tough for little hands, especially hand-sharpeners, so Cadoozles create less stress for little students while making writing fun!
Why is it that most pencils are just plain yellow or orange? That doesn't sound like much fun to me. Cadoozles come in a pack of six, and each pencil is just as unique as the student that will hold it! Every pencil comes in a different color with different designs on the outside. From sports to space, there's sure to be multiple designs that fit the personality of the little writer. The orange ice cream Cadoozle was a hit with us!
Another downside to sharpening pencils is that they get shorter. Once a pencil becomes too short, little hands can cramp up while trying to write with them. Because you never have to sharpen a Cadoozle, they never get any shorter! Another upside to this is that you never have to say goodbye to the pretty design on the outside!
Angie is in Kindergarten and is still in the learning stages of writing. She says that "Cadoozles rock!" And that they are "her thing!" They are the perfect pencils to keep at her princess desk, and anytime she needs to write she heads for her Cadoozles! The size and shape really promote correct hand positioning for writing, and kids who start out with Cadoozles would have no problem transitioning to regular pencils. Thumbs up Cadoozles!
Cadoozles come in Purple, light Blue, Green, Yellow, Orange, and White. They feature 6 different graphic themes and are refillable with 0.7 mm lead. To refill, you simply remove the large eraser and replace with new lead! With a solid, wood case design barrel and large, colorful eraser, they are perfect for standardized testing! They come in a fun packaging and would make great party favors.
Cadoozles are a must for elementary school classrooms. Say goodbye to boring orange pencils and hello to the kids' pencil of the future! Teachers will find that kids easily take to Cadoozles, and that they make learning fun! Parents looking for things to give to their childrens' classroom would be smart to provide each child with one of these fantastic pencils. They would also make great stocking stuffers, new school supplies, children's desk accessories, or Easter-basket presents! Whenever you give them, they are sure to be a hit!
Buy it: Cadoozles can be purchased easily at Zebrapen.com or at Amazon.com. They can be bought in packs, or one at a time for just $0.41 each! Super affordable and super fun!
