Amazing news and all I can say is they're going to need to make a lot of pencil sharpeners! Keep us posted with he release as I'm not sure if these will be available in the US so may need to order direct from them.

Congratulations. Fantastic news.

Fond memories of the original line, so I'll be snapping these up, once they hit the shelves.
The DS sharpener looks the dog's whotsits.

It's great to see a company respecting their product history. It's also great to see the fans involved in the creation of new products and what look like some fantastic designs. I'm really looking forward to seeing these and can see them doing really well.

Guys, will the pencil cases smell like 1977 pencil cases? I hope you've conveyed the smell of 70s and 80s PVC to the right people. This is a deal breaker for me. No smell = no retro pencil case.

Nah, I'll be lapping it all up and cradling my memories of the smells on my own in a darkened room later.

Great idea, great work! I can't wait to see more about it in the fullness of time.
