The Bertha Pencil Box is a perfect pencil case to hold all your stuff and be able to see it all at once. The handy little pocket on the inside is perfect for your smaller items that may get lost among your larger stuff.

The wide open design and large capacity allows you to store not only your pens, pencils and markers, you can slip a flash drive in the pocket on the inside! You can store your earbuds, erasers, and little treasures.

How about a busy box for your kids:
** Add a small note pad and some crayons or color pencils
** Add a handful of Legos for unlimited building fun
** Add a few Squinkies, Shopkins, a Barbie or you kid's favorite small toys

Need a busy box for adults?

** Make a small version of your favorite game and toss in a few dice
** A pad of paper, pencil and deck of cards, you have an instant card game

There are so many things you can so with versatile pencil case/tray/carry - all.
