I was in Lidl's today and saw they had a tracing set (see attached).  I looked around for the price, but couldn't see anything.

This 'Sewing Accessories Set' seems to contain that 12 piece tracing set (as well as a lot of other stuff) for just £4.99...  :faints:
I might look as though I'm talking to you, but inside my head I'm sewing.

I thought it looked as if there are three different sets.
Bernina Aurora 440QE, Brother BC-2500, Singer 99K (1938), Juki MO-654DE overlocker, Silver Viscount 620D overlocker.

They were selling the blue/white chalk pencils, with the eraser brushes on the caps, as part of a different kit last year.

I bought some, and frankly they are rubbish. Dry, brittle and crumbly, they leave very faint marks, and even that falls off as soon as you move the fabric.

Can't speak for what the rest of that set is like, but if it's anywhere near the same quality as the pencils, then maybe best to give it a miss.

I have yet to find a marking pen/pencil that is any good.

I am currently using a sliver of soap to mark some black fabric and it's perfect.

I think in the link that @Acorn posted there are three different sets (including the tracing one) and they are £4.99 each.

That would make more sense!
