A late addition to our series on pencil boxes, the Nic Nac Box is a less known offering from sharpener manufacturer KUM.
A plastic box in light tinted blue, the removable lid becomes a standalone ruler. While on the box, a sliding overlay with a window supports looking up a multiplication table.
There is also a built-in sharpener, appropriate for a KUM product.
The box contains twelve pencils, six in black, six in red. The red ones are factory sharpened. All have nice matte finishes. Unfortunately, the lead seems to be a bit scratchy.
Overall, the box has quite a lot of charm, and would be a nice gift for a young person.
My thanks to Gunther for assistance in acquiring this pencil set.
