I really liked the fact that it was fun and served a purpose!
I don't know this girl personally (they live out of state) and the relationship is new, so it was difficult finding the right gift. This is cute, and not the usual "teacher gift". It will offer a little decoration for her desk, as well as providing those #2 pencils that kids "forget" on test day. I included a couple of packs of colorful #2 pencils, so it will be complete!

It's great for organizing colored pencils, and pens.

My daughter loves this! She likes to draw and this is a fun way to store her pencils.
I thought it would be smaller, or the holes would at least be big enough to hold pens. But the holes really only hold pencils and the whole thing is just bigger than I thought it would be. Since my mom can't use it for her pens, she's going to make it into a planter. Think twice before buying, and make sure it fits your needs.
Percy is so cute and I love how it organizes my desk. It is a great addition to my home.

Very cute. But hard for side ones to stay in well.
I bought this for my mother in law because she is an avid colored pencil artist and she LOVES it. She said it makes her smile every time she goes into the kitchen and sees her porcupine smiling at her. She said it was one of the cutest gifts she's been given. Great fun present! The only issue is there is a hole on the bottom of the little guy so if you lift him up to move him all the pencils fall thru the hole. So, we put a piece of tape over it and problem solved.
After I got the color pencils in it I went to move it and so many of the pencils ended up on the floor. I didn't realize there was a hole in the bottom. Wish there was a removable plug there. I will stuff something in it, such as small cotton ball or Kleenex, in case I have to get in it to remove something.
