  1. O. M. G. At first, I didn’t even read a thing. I just looked at the pictures. NEON. NEON. NEON. Then I went back and looked at the pictures again. I don’t even want to read. I just like the pictures. I’d buy them based on your pictures. So now I must go to Target, thank you!

  2. Aw man. These are rather garish (especially, I imagine, with the Ticonderoga ferrule factored in), but as a child of the 80s, I also find them strangely alluring and soothing, and I WANT SOME NOW.

    My travels yesterday evening took me by a Target, so I ran in, full of hope. I combed all the office supplies and back to school aisles. All in vain. They did have some silver metallic Write Bros. pencils which were tempting, but…no garish neon Ticonderogas. *snif*

  3. […] Neon colours seem to be all the craze this summer. There is of course Lamy’s fluorescent yellow Safari fountain pen. Then there are the neon Wopeces from Lexikaliker’s blog post and there are also the neon Ticonderogas comrade John told us about. […]

    My problem with all Ticonderogas since they moved to Mexico and China is that the leads break very easily. I want to love this brand with the memories of school that it evokes but it just isn’t as good as it used to be. I do like some of these neon colors, though!

    Lead content in the neon colors coating the pencils would be my concern. Since they’re not made in the USA, bright colored items made in other countries can often have lead added to the mix to intensify the color. If there’s lead in the paint, it will be absorbed into the skin it is held, placed behind the ear or held in the mouth. Simple lead tests can be found at the hardware stores.
