Smencils - Scented Pencils




With the Mini Mes returning to school next week we have been busy purchasing new bags, uniform and of course stationery. 

We were recently sent some Smencils to review from Learning Resources and we will definitely be popping them into their character pencil cases to take in with them!




Smencils are made from 100% recycled newspaper and are the world's only scented pencils. They have their own biodegradable tube to guarantee freshness for two years and come in 25 scents. You can buy them in colour and graphite and there are also black ink ballpoint pens known as Smens available too!






We received a starter set of 5 original Robinsons Fruit Shoot Smencils to try. The scents included were blackcurrant and apple, summer fruits, tropical, apple and orange. They all smell delicious, just like the scent that they are meant to. After having a sniff the Mini Mes got a pad of paper out to test them, discovering that they sharpen and draw well and the rubber to the end is handy for errors - they were keen to doodle for much longer than usual due to the yummy smell.

Smencils can be purchased in sets or individually so you can soon have a collection of all of your favourite scents. They are great value so ideal for both party bags and to use pocket money on with seasonal Smencils available too for Halloween, Valentine's Day and Christmas.







Learning Resources currently have a competition where you can win 1 of 10 sets of Robinsons Fruit Shoot Smencils. You can enter here before 7th September - Smencils competition. Good Luck!
