When I was younger I received some scented pencils as a Birthday present. There were in a pack of four and were supposed to smell of Pineapple, Blackcurrant, Tropical Fruits and Orange. I say "supposed to smell" as all 4 pencils smelt exactly the same!
Fast forward 30 years and I have received some new scented pencils for the boys to try out. Smencils are the world's only scented pencils made from 100% recycled newspaper! Each pencils is in a plastic tube (made from biodegradable plastic) guaranteeing freshness for 2 years!
We received the Original Fruit Shoot Smencils set which contained 5 pencils - Blackcurrant & Apple, Tropical, Apple, Orange and Summer Fruits. Every single pencil smelt just like the fruit and the boys loved them. As well as using them as pencils they kept taking them out of the tube to smell them! It will be interesting to see if they still smell as good in two years time but certainly at the minute I am very impressed.
A pack of 5 costs £5.99 from Learning Resources
