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!
