Loft Pastel Limited Edition Pencils

I am not sure exactly when Loft Stores, in Japan, released the new Pastel pencils, but it was probably in the first quarter of 2021. What is interesting about this set of pencils is that 2 of the 5 are not new pencils, but carried over from their previous P200 for Boys & Girls set from 2019. The Baby Pink (P205BG-P2LF) and Serenity Blue (P205BG-SLF) join with 3 new colors to make up the Loft Pastel (as opposed to the Floral Pastels out of Europe, which will be the subject of a later post). The other three pencils in the Boys & Girls series have been discontinued by Loft.

Unlike the Brazilian P200 for Boys & Girls, which says “P200 Boys & Girls 0.5mm Pentel P205”, the text on the Loft Boys & Girls set is easy to adapt to a new series, as it does not say the series name on it.

These pencils are all molded with plastic in the appropriate color.

P205BG-P2LF Baby Pink

As indicated by the “BG” in the part number, this (and the next pencil) is one of the two pencils originally released in the Boys & Girls set. I am assuming that since it was a light color that is why it was chosen.
Barcode: 4902506367877

P205BG-SLF Serenity Blue

Again, this is the other pencil carried over from the Boys & Girls set.
Barcode: 4902506367884

P205-DLF Emerald Green

This is one of the three new colors for the pastel series. The only issue I have with this one, is the choice of the font color. The yellow text is hard to read.

P205-GLF Pale Yellow

Second of the new colors, this is a nice choice.

P205-VLF Violet

Last of the new colors, this is probably my favorite of the Pastel set.

As I said at the top of this post, another set of Pastel pencils were released in Europe this year. This will be a subject of my next post, but here is a side-by-side comparison of the two sets.

European Floral/Pastels at top, Loft Pastels at bottom

As you may notice, the Loft pencils are shinier than the European pastels at the top. I will get into that in the next post.

  1. Bom dia
    Gostaria que quando vocês fizessem lançamentos, poderia ser a nível mundial.
    Tem modelos que no Brasil não chegam…
    E para nós que gostamos da marca nem se quer conseguimos comprar…
    Tipo exemplo, as que têm metais dourados…

    1. Olá Newton,

      Eu sou apenas um fã dos lápis Pentel P200. Eu sei que existe uma pessoa no Brasil que vende lápis de todo o mundo. Confira @pentelprovider no Instagram.
