That is just appalling to me, to teach them excess from early on... 25 pencils for 20 months? Are you serious?
It comes to more than a dollar per pencil. Seriously?
unless my child is seriously artistically inclined and I'm trying to nurture that...this is just absurd.
I think this is the fourth time or so that these pencils have been showcased on one of the Apartment Therapy family of websites. We get it: 500 colored pencils. Amazing.
i agree with Styckywycket.... $600 for colored pencils.if you can afford this in your life you need to re evaluate how you live and maybe start donating some of that money to charity.i mean come on, i doubt they are even good pencils.
I seriously think someone who could afford these needs to reevaluate their lives.Everyone has their own indulgences. Some may balk at how another spends money.. video games, Jimmy Choos, great wine, restaurants, Coach bag... or Manhattan real estate.And, SURPRISE, these are artists' tools. A buck a piece ain't bad. I think part of the issue was that these were first posted on BabyAT.
OOPS.That was bad cut and paste, and I never finished the paste...I MEANT to say "I seriously DOUBT that someone who could afford these needs to reevaluate their lives."
When I was a kid, I had this major gripe with my sets of colored pencils - that there was only ONE true red pencil, and ONE black pencil. Those pencils were always the first to get used to nubs and then I would be bummed until the next new set.The only way a ginormous set of colored pencils is ever going to catch my eye is if it contains multiple red and black ones.
I think $600 would be better spent on art lessons. Then you can learn how to blend and make the subtle colors needed using fewer pencils. I must admit that they make a pretty decoration, though. Maybe I'm biased because I didn't even use half of the crayons in the Crayola box when I was a kid.
