The Twist ‘n Write pencil is a wishbone-shaped mechanical pencil sized for children. With little effort, it positions the fingers in the tripod grasp. To hold, the index finger goes through the wishbone with the pad of the index finger resting on the top of the pencil. The thumb and tall finger naturally fall into the tripod position.

  • Fits RIGHT or LEFT HAND
  • Sized for a child
  • The #2 lead is thick (2 mm)
  • Twisting the tip of the pencil advances the lead
  • Erasers are on the outside edges of the wishbone

All our orders are shipped with Hold the Pencil—a pamphlet with quick instructions and tips for developing good pencil skills.

    Refilling the Twist ‘n Write Pencils

    A small piece of lead may remain inside the pencil. If so, use the wire “refill plunger” that comes with the refills to clear the lead channel. Insert the plunger into the tiny hole at the base of the “U” shape of the pencil (where the index finger rests.) The remaining old lead will be pushed out the point of the pencil.

    Load the new lead into the point of the pencil. To seat the lead into the pencil, firmly push the pencil and lead on a hard surface.

    It’s easy to refill the pencils, but the first time you may be concerned that you are pushing too hard on the lead. Keep in mind that there is a groove inside the pencil which holds the lead in place — you may feel the lead “pop” into the groove. That groove is tight when the pencil is new, so it will require a good amount of pressure. 

    Once the lead is in place, rotate the point to retract the lead into the pencil.
