    Rated 3.7 out of 5�by 12 reviewers.
    Rated 3 out of 5�by Bic Mchanical Pencils They are easy to write with and inexpensive if lost. March 30, 2015
    Rated 1 out of 5�by Disappointed I purchased this item because the older attached keyboard had become unreliable, missing keystrokes and causing passwords to fail. Major problem for heavy online consumer use. This product has already demonstrated these same shortcomings after only ten days. It is going back. Mouse seems ok. June 25, 2013
    Rated 1 out of 5�by Non-refillable!!! I do realize it is listed on the website as non-refillable, so I'm certainly not saying this is false advertising. However, for me one of the best things about having mechanical pencils is the ability to refill them. I don't think these are worth the money. January 14, 2013
    Rated 5 out of 5�by Suits its Purpose The products works and its inexpensive enough that losing it is no big deal. And in lieu of replacing lead, we just replace the pencil. November 5, 2011

    • Writing Sparks Creativity

      According to an expert in educational psychology from the University of Washington, handwriting instruction benefits students' cognitive development as well as motor functioning. For example, some of the motor and cognitive tasks associated with handwriting are the following: ideation, text production, punctuation, planning, spelling, grammar.
    • Writing Builds Self-Confidence

      "Studies show that children who write frequently, both at school and at home, feel more confident in their writing abilities. This confidence translates into success in all academic subjects and in nonacademic environments as well." – Pam Allyn, Your Child’s Writing Life and "Prepare My Child for School: Early Childhood Education," U.S. Department of Education.
    • Writing Improves Cognitive Development

      Experts recommend at least 15 minutes of handwriting instruction each day for students. Research has shown that improved handwriting skills have benefits for cognitive development, motor skills and can lead to improved writing skills and comprehension.
