Take a Peek at Our Newest Arrivals!

Though summer has come to an end, the surprises at never stop no matter what season it is! Just in time for the new semester, collections of different pens and pencils have made their way in for the fall! Excited, yet? We are, we don't even know where to begin!

We definitely couldn't start the new season off without something for the Rilakkuma lovers. One of our newest arrivals include Rilakkuma Chocolate and Coffee 0.5mm Mechanical Pencils. If your friends didn't know you were a Rilakkuma fan before, they definitely will now as these mechanical pencils are topped by a large Rilakkuma (or Korilakkuma) advance button!

As we're getting ready for the new season, it seems like Rilakkuma is getting ready for Halloween! Rilakkuma Costume Multifunction Pens have three different designs showcasing Rilakkuma or Korilakkuma dressed up! A mouse, a bunny, or a cow…what do you think Rilakkuma and Korilakkuma looks best in?

For those that are more into simplicity and minimal yet chic designs, the Uni Alpha-Gel HD 0.5mm Shaker Mechanical Pencil or the Mini Jelly 0.5mm Mechanical Pencil is the perfect fit. Another great feature these mechanical pencils have are soft, comfort gel surfaces that will make writing easier on the fingers. Now writing essays will no longer have to come with blisters at the end.

New school year, new secrets! Need to tell your best friend something private? The invisible ink and special light in the Angry Birds Secret Message Pen will make sure your message is only read by the receiver! What secrets will you have to tell?

Last but not least, cuteness comes in the form of Umcoco 0.5mm Retractable Ballpoint Pens. Characters inspired by Little Red Riding Hood to Rapunzel, these retractable pens are for those simply looking for something cute and sweet.

With the official arrival of fall, this leaves(pun intended) us to the question: which one of our newest additions will we see in your Cool Pencil Case this season?

Take a look at some of the fun we've been having with this app!
