This mechanical pencil is new-old stock from 1997 which has colorful Barbie graphics wrapped around it and protected with a plastic coating. It measures 14 cm long (about 5.75") It is made of plastic except for the tip which is metal. There is a pencil lead already inside and they can be replaced from the top. Quite a nice collectors pencil for that Barbie fan. We have multiples and there are original bar code stickers on most of them.
