Independent Review: Midnight Black Pencil Sharpener from Classroom Friendly Supplies

It's summer and you know what that means. Back to school shopping is here!  What . . . already? I knew that I would need a new pencil sharpener for the beginning of the school year, because the sound of my electric pencil sharpener was already annoying me. Not to mention is eats all the pencils down to teeny tiny stubs. I've been reading many reviews about the Pencil Sharpeners offered at Classroom Friendly Supplies. I decided to visit their website and imagine my surprise when I noticed that they were looking for bloggers to do product reviews. Check out their Blogger Review Program if interested in applying! I immediately contacted the company about this opportunity and requested a Midnight Black pencil sharpener. I was surprised how fast it arrived and I know . . . I'll be the weird one but I was super excited! The pencil sharpeners were developed by classroom elementary teacher and owner of Classroom Friendly Supplies, Troy Decoff, who sells his sharpeners as a side business.

The pencil sharpeners are currently available in 7 vibrant colors: Groovy Green, Hello Yellow, Midnight Black, Popular Purple, Precious Pink, Cool Blue, and Firehouse Red. They also offer replacement parts such as blades, trays, mounts, and clamps.

One thing I love about this company is that they support the Pencils for Promise Movement. They donate $1 for EVERY pencil sharpener sold to help build schools in developing countries. Check out their Fundraising Page. Furthermore if you purchase the Precious Pink Pencil Sharpener, then he donates a portion of the sale to cancer research and awareness. Isn't that wonderful!

In preparing for the new year, I labeled my Sharpened and Dull Pencil Holder Containers for my classroom. This meant that I would need many pencils sharpened and ready to go. My 11-year-old daughter assisted me with this project. We both immediately noticed how easy the pencil sharpener was to use. I loved how sharp the point was and that it did not immediately break once I started using it. That always drives me crazy!

Veteran teachers will appreciate these tools in their classrooms too if you are looking for classroom donation ideas. I hope to purchase a Hello Yellow Pencil Sharpener, Mounting Equipment, and the 5 in 1 Laser Pointer later this year.
