Lyra Color Giants (unlacquered) 18-count, assorted colors are highly-pigmented colored pencils with an extra thick, break resistant lead to give the colors gigantic intensity. The pigments in these colored pencils lay down like butter and are just gorgeous! Definitely an art-worthy colored pencil. In fact, Lyra Color Giants are a recommended Waldorfish art supply for some of their online classes: Waldorfish Geometry Gr5-Gr8.


The pencils are long-lasting, and durable, and deliver color that is smudge-proof and waterproof. These pencils have a rounded, hexagonal-shaped barrel so they can’t roll off the table, and the shape makes them more comfortable to hold. The unlacquered, natural wood is silky smooth to hold and is biodegradable at its end of life. 


A brilliant feature is the included wooden storage box. No more ripped and tattered cardboard boxes that won’t stay shut. A wooden box from European FSC forests and a slide lid. All 18 pencils fit snugly inside. 


These color pencils are an investment, but wow are they worth it! In addition to all the above features, they have outlasted my old regular color pencils for sure thanks to the thickness. They sharpen easily to a pointy point and the sharpener doesn’t have to take off much to do that.  Once they finally began to get short from sharpening, I just popped on a color pencil extender (lengthener), and I was good to go. 


Triangular Shaped Lyra Pencils made to help younger children develop strong, tripod-grip, hand muscles while reducing hand fatigue.
