Smencils are the world's only scented pencils made from 100% recycled newspaper. There are 25 scents to collect, and I was sent a pack of pencils to review which smell like Robinsons Fruit Shoots. The starter set contains five graphite pencils. Each smencil is environmentally friendly and made from 100% recycled newspaper. The pencils are enclosed in individual plastic containers, presumably to contain the scent, which are biodegradable.
I can see how the pencils would be popular with children, they have a strong and distinctive scent and they are good quality. I also really like the fact that they are made from recycled products. One thing to note, it is the pencil itself that smells, the scent doesn't transfer to the paper.
As well as the packs, you can also buy the pencils individually and they'd be really good for party bags or stocking presents.
You can enter to win a set of Smencils here on Facebook, the competition closes on Friday 7th September 2012.
