Advantages: cheap, last well, good quality
Disadvantages: none for me really
Whenever I buy colouring things for either my son or somebody else's child I always like to buy Crayola products or some other brand which I associate with being high end as I think they always last better and are just better quality. Over the years my son has had lots of Crayola crayons and this is my review of them.
Crayola crayons don't really seem to have changed from when I was younger and using them to be honest. They come in packs of eight, twelve or twenty four from memory but I tend to buy the twenty four packs so you get more crayon for your money. They come in a cardboard pack which is green and yellow and to me really stands out as the Crayola brand which I remember from my own childhood. In the packs you get a good selection of colours to use and you will find there is probably a crayon for most things you want to draw in the selection.
The crayons are a good size and come with a paper wrap which covers most of the crayon leaving just the tip exposed. Obviously as you begin to colour with the crayons you will eventually need to remove some of the paper so that you always have some crayon exposed for colouring with. The crayons seem pretty well made and so they don't snap easily as you colour with them which some cheap non branded ones seem to do which is why I like to avoid them as I cant be doing with half bits of crayons floating around in my son's pencil case. As you colour with these crayons you get good coverage and you don't have to press on too hard either as you do it so it means they are less likely to snap I think.
What is great about these crayons is that I think they are perfect for younger children as well as older ones. The younger ones are able to hold them and have a good go at mark making on a page (and quite possibly a good go at chewing them too as all babies seem to like the taste of crayons for some reason!) whilst pre school children and older are able to use them to draw, colour and just generally be imaginative which is really nice to see as a parent. I trust the Crayola brand to provide products suited to my son's needs all the way through his childhood to be honest and this is why I will more often than not turn to them when I need products such as crayons, pencil crayons and felt tip pens.
A pack of twenty four Crayola crayons can currently be bought from amazon for £0.98 and there is a £0.99 postage and packing charge and I think this is a really reasonable price for a well made, durable crayon which is suited to all children really in my opinion.
Thank you for reading my review!
Summary: A good brand of crayon
