This Pencil Sharpener from Classroom Friendly Supplies Will Make YOU The Bomb This Valentine's Day!


Disclosure / Disclaimer: I received this product, free of charge, from Classroom Friendly Supplies,
for review purposes on this blog. No other compensation, monetary or in kind, has been received or implied for this post. Nor was I told how to post about it






I don't know about your child's classroom, but Miss Grace's class has gone through not 1, but THREE pencil sharpeners this year! Part of the problem is they just aren't made like they used to be, and the other part is just the about of use they get!

So when the chance came along to review a new pencil sharpener that is not only MADE for the heavy use classroom environment, but is QUIET, I knew we had to get it and gift it to Miss Grace's classroom!


The pencil sharpener from Classroom Friendly Supplies comes in 4 color choices- red, blue, green and black, to fit your classroom's personality! It has an old-school retro look, as you can see. But the best part is how quiet its' sharpening is! It truly eliminates classroom interruptions (well, except for when EVERYONE wants to use it, LOL). Teachers, and students, will love that is has an automatic stopping, once the perfect point is formed, to prevent over-sharpening.

Miss Grace and her classmates are thrilled with the sharpener, as you can see! Getting that perfect point has thrilled them to no end! It was all I heard about for 3 days after the teacher installed it! They love how easy (and quickly) it works, and her teacher loves how easy it is to remove the shaving tray, to dump it. Plus it goes twice as long as their previous sharpener, before needing to be dumped! Not to mention it is in one of their school colors- extra bonus score for Mom! Yeah!

The sharpener is 3"x 3"x 5", and comes with a clamp to mount it probably to any surface, so it can easily be moved around, or from classroom to classroom. The clamp doesn't quite fit the table they are using correctly, so they have to have a person hold it in place while they use it for now (which is fine, as there is always a line, aka when one needs to use it, 5 more do too! LOL). A permament mount is also available, if you wish to screw it into a more stable mount, that will NOT be moved. But our teacher has a handy dandy hubby, who came up with a solution, so next week, they will not need to hold it anymore. Note-the sharpener works on STANDARD sized pencils. You can also buy replacement blades, something you might not be able to do for pricier models from other companies!
This sharpener makes a superb teacher's gift- after all they can only have so many Teacher ornaments, cups , chocolate hearts (I'm sure their New Year's diets would agree on that one) and bags! This is a gift that makes THEIR life easier, and is great for their classroom (as teacher's have to buy so many items themselves nowadays as it is. Plus it is a gift that gives back:
