Lin, I just read your post, after replying already about how bad crayola has gotten. I am glad to know that I just didn't get a bad batch.

We're into the second quarter and the pencils are about two-thirds of the way down. Every time a kid sharpens them, the point breaks off. Has anyone else had this problem? I learned my lesson!
