The triangular-shaped pencil help

The Soft-Lead Pencil helps
a child who holds their pencil too tightly
the child who bears down on the pencil
The Jumbo Grip Pencil has a triangular-shaped barrel, which can help a child establish the tripod grasp. This pencil is thick, like a fat “primary pencil”, but not quite as bulky due to the triangular shape. It is lightweight, and the black dots are raised to keep fingers from slipping. #2 lead, made by Faber-Castell.
The Soft-Lead Pencil is an artists’ sketching pencil (6B, which is equivalent to a #1 lead.) Some children bear down on their pencil with a tight hand—they want to see a darker line on their paper. Prevent this habit—give them a Soft-Lead Pencil so they can make a dark line with less pressure.
