These were all the rage when I was in 5th & 6th grade, 1990 - 1991. Plastic pens that came in every type of design imaginable, with about 8 different lead tips that you'd load into the pencil like bullets. They usually had fancy erasers and/or cool caps for the business end of the pencil. I have no idea whether or not kids still use these. (Probably not, what with the CELL PHONE thing and all ...) But man we loved these things. The school store could get away with charging an arm and a leg for them!

Oh yeah, I had two of these. I sucked when you lost one or two of the bullets, b/c the whole thing was useless.

Yeah! I have seen them recently at Target in the $1 Dollar section.

I'd totally forgotten about these! Thanks for the memory! (School store, anyone?)

It was a total treat if I was running late and my mom was driving me to school. We would first stop at a convenient store. I don't remember what mom was buying but, I would hang out at the register. There was a box filled with these deliciously smelly pencils. Fruit flavored and I was allowed to pick ONE out for school.
