Pencils made from rolled discarded newspaper that don’t break when dropped and last twice as long as regular pencils? Yes, please! Myobon’s pencils appeal to Mom and Dad’s green sense as well as your child’s sense of style, including various designs such as an artsy rainbow pattern and a set featuring wild animals.

    If you punch down far enough through the site you get to the data sheets such as which will illuminate you with such wonderful things as dimensions and materials.

    Thank you to all who have attempted to correct me in this post! :-) Sorry that my poor attempt at humor wasn’t clear here. I don’t actually think “Lorem Ipsum dolor” is “Greek” as in from Greece, nor do I think it translates to “website under construction”. As a web designer, I know for a fact that “Lorem Ipsum Dolor” is is a bunch of nonsense words called “greek” which is used in the graphic design for mocking up dummy text. (It uses some Latin words, but in no particular order). And I’m not trying to poke fun at Lumino design (well maybe just little). I actually really like these designs and am anxious to find out how I can get my hands on one of these lamps.

    If you’re going to make fun of their site being under construction, at least get the language correct :) It’s Latin! Oh and keep coming with the good stuff!
