3plus / 3 in 1 coloring pencil


Discipline: Product

Discipline: Product

For creative kids: the 3plus is a colored pencil, watercolor pencil and wax crayon all in one. Easy-grip ergonomic square design, rounded edges and compact in length for holding with the entire hand. The extra-thick lead can withstand even extreme pressure and be used for coloring on all smooth surfaces. The 3plus comes in 18 different colors and makes a child’s first painting, drawing and writing exercises easy and fun. Little hands can grip the pencils completely naturally from the very first time. The distinctive cross-section prevents rapid fatigue.
3plus makes learning fun!

This product oozes quality and resilience. Hence it is not only suitable as a creative tool for children but also for older people who want to get back into DIY. It would even be suited for use in a therapeutic context.
