Classroom Friendly Pencil Sharpener Review and Giveaway!

One thing everyone needs is a good pencil sharpener.  My children use our pencil sharpener pretty much every day, and during the school year it gets a work out!   This year I have been home-schooling my two middle children and we have been using our classroom friendly Pencil Sharpener since fall.  It has worked out great for our homeschooling journey.

 So when Classroom Friendly Supplies offered to let my sister review their pencil sharpener as another homeschooler she was thrilled!

Classroom Friendly Supplies is a company started by an elementary school teacher who wanted a better sharpener that was also quite.

Here is a little blurb about her:

I am an elementary school teacher and the owner of Classroom Friendly Supplies. I first started selling these sharpeners after realizing that many fellow teachers were also completely fed up with the loud and inefficient pencil sharpeners that they had in their classrooms. I have thousands of happy customers and the feedback has all been consistently the same and extremely positive.

As teachers are obviously my biggest customers, I gladly accept school purchase orders. Please check this out in my School Purchase Orders tab above.

So what is my sisters opinion as a veteran homeschooler?  My sister loves the look of the sharpener she received.  It looks vintage and the colors are so cute!  She likes how well built and heavy this sharpener is.  It is well weighted which is important because it can be used free standing so that you don't have to anchor it to a table or wall.  Her children figured it out right out of the box (I had to watch the video on the website!).


What is really neat is you don't have to hold the pencil in while you sharpen it.  This is great for small kids who are still working on their small motor skills.  Here is a video on how to use it.  Here is my 5 year old figured it out after being shown once.  It is super simple!  My sister didn't want pics of her children on the net so these are my kiddos.

Both my sister and I like that this sharpener is well built, attractive, easy to use, quite, and affordable at $24.99.  This would be great for home-schoolers, classrooms, or as a gift for a teacher in your life.
