Rated 5 out of 5 by JeeWiz801 from Mighty Workhorse Initially was not floored by the style and couldn't see any instructions for type of batteries to use and couldn't open the battery access to check. Had to enlist help as package didn't have any instructions printed out. Once batteries were installed, I went to town sharpening an assortment # 2 type pencils with different leads inside (Coloring pencils and drawing pencils, too.) Impressed with the power and fit of sharpener in my palm and how it gave uniform pencil points regardless of thickness and hardness. Sooo convenient and glad to have the cover to capture the shavings and the safety feature of battery disengaged when cover is open or removed! Can be safely used by little people hands without worrying about any injuries to explore the spinning sharpener behind the cover - BONUS ! Two AA batteries were able to sharpen 3 dozen pencils beautifully. Caution: Just be aware that the batteries start to wear with more than 24 pencils continuously. A MIGHTY little sharpener to keep handy around the office or crafts table. I'm taking it to the public library to show it off to the adults and kids that I work with to do their math practice !!! Shows lots of thought went into the design and productivity of this tool. An asset for the classroom especially where mounted pencil sharpeners are an endangered species if not extinct but a must have survival item !!!

Rated 3 out of 5 by tiquefinder from See-Thru Sharpener Interesting sharpener with a view of the internal workings. It does the job but you have to hold onto the sharpener to keep it from spinning out of you hand.

Rated 4 out of 5 by HappyOne987 from Cute, great for kids Cute and functional. I think it would work well with the younger ages with the colors and mechanics. It works, I don't know if it is the best for daily use.

How do you load the batteries?
To load the batteries in, please flip the pencil sharpener upside down, there should be a plastic latch which you can lift up which opens the battery compartment.
