ELC 36 Chubby Crayons
Advantages: Lovely bright colours, seem unbreakable, Good value for money!!
Although the review does state 36 crayons, the ones that I purchased from Early Learning Centre contained only 20. As these are the only ones for sale I take it that they have cut back. These crayons come in 10 colours with 2 of each colour. This is handy as you can split the pack and share it with someone else, as in my case my daughter.
These crayons are roughly around 2 inches tall, but are quite chunky. Perfect for those tiny chubbie fingers, I really couldn't imagine my grandson being able to break these is half. Coming with no paper wrapped around them they are really quite plain. They come in a variety of colours with some being really bright and others in the usual black, brown, green ect...
At first I was worried about him putting the crayons into his mouth, but so far the nearest it has got to a mouth is mine, when he tries to put it on my lips like a lipstick. They draw onto the paper really easy without having to press to hard, I always put the piece of paper onto a plastic oblong white tray that he does sometimes seem to draw more on than the paper. This soon wipes over with a wet wipe and is clean again.
These are in the ELC Bits and Basics section and are aimed at 2 years upwards, but I think as long as the child is being watched a much younger age (18 months) can use these with no problems. These crayons are really really sturdy and we have had them put into pots and thrown about, a Little Tykes car has driven over them and I have trodden on one on more than one occassion (ouch!) and still they stay intact all in one piece.
I did buy these a few weeks ago when Early Learning Centre was doing 20% of their toys, so when I was ordering some Christmas pressies I ordered these as well. Being priced at £2.00 I received them for £1.60, I think that the full price is excellent for these crayons, as we have had a lot of fun sitting down and scribbling away. I'm now looking to purchasing their chunky chalks ready for next spring, so that he can go and draw on the patio then I can hose it over later!!
Summary: Great for the winter days indoors, doing some drawing or scribbling !!!
