Something crazy happened in my middle child's class at school last year - all 30+ kids went absolutely gaga over Crayola Twistables, so I don't mind admitting that I gave a little shriek of joy when I discovered that this pack of 40 Twistables is just £6.37 right now at Argos, reduced from £14.99.
Suitable for budding artists aged four years and older, the Sketch & Draw Power Pack contains 20 twistables coloured pencils plus 15 mini twistables, 4 super tips markers and 1 twistables graphite pencil.
I'm not sure why these have such massive appeal with my little guy and his classmates, but I know why I love them - no sharpening required! Which means no blunt pencils cluttering up our desk while we try to remember who had the pencil sharpener last, and no tidying up endless little piles of pencil sharpenings. It's a win.
I love popping stuff like this in stockings at Christmas - great for keeping the troops entertained while they wait all day for dinner, and a handy but affordable way of filling up that long red sock!
You can get these delivered to your door for £3.95, or reserve some online and opt to collect them at no additional charge from your local branch.
