Innovative Storage Designs Pencil Box, 8 1/2 x 5 1/2, Clear
Even with adult usage they break!
The first time I opened this pencil box, the hinges broke. I hoped most of them would last all year in my high school classroom, but after three weeks of sporadic use, only 5 of the 16 I purchased are still usable. They are a great size, but terrible quality.

These boxes are okay for the price. The lids do not stay aligned with the clasp. I was surprised that they are listed as clear however they are really opaque.

Not great for classroom
I purchased these for my kindergartners to use as pencil boxes, but they are rather flimsy and difficult to open and close with one hand. I ended up returning them. They would probably be fine for older kids.

Smaller than expected
I was hoping to use this as a storage case for something besides pencils, but unfortunately, it is not 8.5 inches as described. The usable space is actually much closer to 8 inches, so it will not work for me. Otherwise, it is just OK. The plastic is a little flimsy, and it does not have the strongest latches in the world, but for light use, it would work.
