Click on the picture to enter the sweepstakes, and follow Crayola on their adventure and read more about the original 8. Each one has likes and dislikes, who knew?
Crayola was introduced in 1903, originating as a pigment supply company, and in 1984 was acquired by Hallmark.
I have fond memories of begging my mom to “please buy me the bog box, the one with the sharpener” 😉 There is nothing better than opening a fresh box of crayons, is there?
Founders Edward Binney and Harold Smith
Look how far we have come since the original 8 box!
Crayola has increased in size to 120 crayons, retiring Blue Gray, Lemon Yellow, Orange Red, Orange Yellow, Violet Blue, Maize, Green Blue, Raw Umber, Thistle, Blizzard Blue, Mulberry, Teal Blue and Magic Mint.
Dong some research I discovered an artist who uses Crayola crayons as his primary medium. Look at one of the pictures, simply amazing!: You can view more of Don Marco’s (Master Crayon Artist) photos on his website.
