I use Faber-Castell, Prismacolor, Derwent and Blick colored pencils. I have no hesitation in declaring that I prefer the Crayola pencils over the Derwent /Prismacolor pencils because 1) Crayola pencils dont "drop powder" during use, and, 2) I can sharpen them easily and get the "blunt" out of the lead without losing the lead itself. The pigment is strong, the lay down is even, and I can exert an enormous amount of color in one section before I experience waxing. The cost of these pencils, and their quality, is outstanding. I wish Crayola Company would go toe-to-toe with the big guys in the colored pencil field and create a collection of 120 different pencils at a cost comperable to their 50 ct collection; I think they could make an enormous dent in the profits of companies like Prismacolor, Derwent, etc. You wont regret getting these pencils, I guarantee you.

As Good as Faber-Castell
Great choice of colors and smooth coloring.
I prefer "map" or "colored pencils" over Crayons any day and the Crayola brand is exceptional. The 50 colors includes any shade I need for my coloring books. In addition, the smoothness or the ease of coloring is very nice to work with. Cheaper "map colors" snag and tear the papers.
Best Coloring Pencils
I bought these to try for my adult coloring books (a current rage which is very relaxing and therapeutical). I love these Crayola Colored Pencils! I decided to try them because there were so many (50) colors. They come pre-sharpened, which is great because you can start using them immediately. They color beautifully! The points last a long time and don't tend to break easily, as other brands do. They sharpen nicely, once needed. I find them far superior to all the other brands I have tried. I would definitely recommend these to others.
Great Strong Colors
Love that they are already sharpened and how strong the colors are. I love to draw all the time and I love all the colors and how beautiful they look on paper.
I am happy with these pencils. They have a good variety of colors. They are also a full size pencil, not the short ones. I am using them on an adult coloring book.
