Color is a little harder to lay down than the Prismacolor, but the Ohuhu are a good value for the money.

I use colored pencils to color stamped images, cards, and adult coloring books. I also use lots of Copic pens, so I enjoy blending colors.
I like these Ohuhu colored pencils for what they are, but for me these are not as good as Prismacolor Premier colored pencils, which I also have. On sale I can find Prismacolor pencils around $1.50 each and these Ohuhu pencils are only about $.45 a pencil. So huge price difference.
Why I prefer the Prismacolor is the color just goes on a little more easily for me, I don't have to press so hard to get a vibrant color or go over the same section so many times. It is not as noticeable with the dark colors, but with the light colors I find the Prismacolor is a lot better.
These Ohuhu pencils will probably be good enough for lots of people for the adult coloring books, as long as you pick up a few skin tone single colors to add to this. But if you really love blending, and laying down colors easily, you may want to go up to the Prismacolor. As stated by other reviewers, the Ohuhu assortment is heavy on reds. In my set, I only had one skin tone light peach/eggshell color and the color didn't go down very nicely.
I will probably end up giving this Ohuhu set to my 11 year old daughter, but I don't regret the purchase since they were economical colored pencils. I also think they would make a very nice gift. They do come already sharpened, which is convenient.
