Advantages: Bright colours, easy for little hands to hold
Disadvantages: Not very strong
I generally don't like crayons but my youngest daughter was given a packet of the Crayola crayons for her second birthday so she has been allowed to play with them on the condition she sits at the living room table although explaining that to a 2 year old is not the easiest of tasks.
My eldest daughter has always loved arts and crafts and until recently my youngest daughter has had no interest however she has recently discovered how to draw and she now loves to be creative too.
The crayons came packaged in a small bright yellow and green box which has always been Crayola's trademark colours even since I was a child. The box displays the Crayola name and has an opening at the front where you can touch the crayons although I'm not sure what the use of this is. The box isn't the best as once the crayons are out of the box it isn't very strong and ours has been flattened numerous times and since gone in the bin.
Inside the box you find there are 8 different coloured crayons, the crayons are about 3 inches in length and each one is wrapped in a piece of waxy feel type paper in the same colour as the crayon and displaying the Crayola name. The colours you get are black, purple, blue, green, red, yellow, orange and brown so there is a great range of basic colours.
The crayons are nice and brightly coloured however they aren't really all that strong and with a heavy handed 2 year old we have had a couple of the crayons snap as she has put too much pressure on them. I personally don't like crayons as I don't like the risk of them getting trodden into the carpet but my daughter really likes them so as long as she stays at the table with them I'm happy and since we have some crayons in the house we are going to make some firework pictures nearer bonfire night and paint over them with black wash.
Summary: A must for firework pictures
