YOU BEAUTY: Whilst visiting my Grandma's house, I went rummaging through the old pencil tin, which I fondly remembered from childhood: the one that was dutifully produced whenever we were there and wanting to do drawing and colouring in. I surprised myself by remembering lots of the individual pencils, everyone had their favourites, but this rainbow pencil was SO good. What a marvel. I wonder if they still make them...

I found them! Not quite the same; without the cheery rainbows, but the lead is the star of the show. Anyway, a snip at 29p. http://www.promotional-products.org/eco-jumbo-rainbow-pencil-hexagonal.html
