A triangular, thick, medium graphite pencil (HB) for your child’s first pencil when learning handwriting. The thick size makes it easier for young children to hold. The triangular size encourages a proper tripod grip. A plus to the triangular shape is that it doesn’t roll off the table. The thick lead is break resistant and sharpens to a nice point with our pencil sharpeners made for this size pencil.



A Super Ferby and a Ferby are the same thickness and same triangular shape, but a Super Ferby is longer than a Ferby. These pencils are Super Ferby



  • If your child is brand new to the pencil or just prefers a shorter pencil, try the Ferby graphite pencils. 
  • Pencil Extender for Ferby, Super Ferby and Color Giants
  • A natural rubber eraser is good to have.
