LEARNING to write is one of the most important skills for kids who are starting primary school.

Choosing the right pencils for small hands to encourage correct grip and skill development can make all the difference.

After 250 years experience Faber-Castell has created a range of ergonomically designed pens for students of all ages.

The range includes:

Junior triangular grip colour pencils

Designed specifically to encourage correct hand position for little hands.

Jumbo connector pens

Designed with big strong tips and easy-grip barrels, these pens are ideal for young children who are learning to write and draw.

Grip scissors

These are perfect for little hands and provide easy grip to improve hand-eye coordination.

Back-to-school set

This covers all the essentials for primary school students. The set includes a retractable ballpen, mechanical pencil, super fluorescent highlighter, leads and sleeve eraser.

Connector twist crayons

The smooth extra-thick triangular grip zone gives hands of all ages better comfort and control.

School writing set

The set includes a retractable ball pen, mechanical pencil with wind out eraser, leads and correction pen.

Super fluorescent high lighters

The water-based super fluorescent highlighters are designed to prevent the marker rolling and have a long "cap-off" life.

Classic watercolour pencils

These transform into brilliant watercolours, allowing artistic students to create unlimited shade options with the brush of water.
