What It Is

What It Is

Unravels are a new twist on coloring and drawing. Unravels look like a regular colored pencil (They are more a cross between a colored pencil and a crayon.) but the decorative outer covering peels back to reveal hidden messages. The more kids write, the more they unravel and the more messages they reveal. Kids can tear off the messages and share with friends. Unravels comes in three themes: lucky fortunes, jokes & riddles, and friendship. Each pencil contains 30 messages.

Why It’s Fun

Unravels turn writing utensils into collectibles. The bright and bold graphics on the outer coverings will appeal to both boys and girls. Kids will enjoy collecting the pencils in each of the different themes and tearing and sharing with friends.

Who It’s For

Unravels are for ages 6 and up.

What to Be Aware of

It can be a little difficult to peel away the outer covering. Make sure you pull the start string down a quarter of an inch before unraveling one strip at a time.
