Sakura Coupy Pencils are colored crayon pencils. Unlike ordinary colored pencils, they do not have wooden cases. In other words, the whole pencils are leads. They may sound like crayons, but they are actually not. They are erasable and sharpenable. Furthermore, like watercolor paints, the colors blend into one another on paper easily.
Coupy Pencils are one of the most commonly used coloring materials among Japanese children.
