Product Description

Crayola 50ct Long Colored Pencils

Amazon.com

Around the time children enter kindergarten, they begin to explore the art of small-scale, detailed drawing. While parents and teachers never want to discourage big and bold art, colored pencils are an ideal tool for children to use to satisfy their urge to draw smaller, intricate shapes. A set such as this one, with 50 different colors, also gives children the chance to explore the world of color. They can carefully fill in the blotchy markings of a calico kitten or precisely form each blade of grass--maybe trying a combination of yellow-green, pine, and jade. Older artists will appreciate the generous assortment of vibrant colors as well as the convincing metallic shades of silver and gold. Although most colors are true to their labels, a few don't deliver. For example, the pale rose leans more toward an antique, dusty rose, and the taupe is just a shade dark. But overall this is a great set of colored pencils, appropriate for any household.

I recently picked up a set of these colored pencils "on a lark" to use as supplemental to my other, more expensive sets, and was pleasantly surprised - no, nearly shocked - at their quality and performance. It's not that they are better than the best Koh-i-noor or Prismacolor pencils (because they aren't), but the truth is that, for their price, they are very difficult to beat. But price alone is not the determinant factor here: if a colored pencil is cheap but performs poorly, then there is no point in picking it up. But what I quickly discovered with these Crayola pencils is that not only are they inexpensive (they break down to only about 20 cents per pencil, compared to anywhere from $1 to $4 per pencil for the more expensive brands), but they perform exceptionally well, to boot.

What do I mean by "perform exceptionally well?" Let me break it down to a short list so I can clearly present what I discovered with these pencils:

1. The pencils have a generally good laydown of color, with the caveat of the few colors that don't work well (true also of my most expensive colored pencils, I must say). Laydown is smooth and uniform, with bright, rich color.
2. The pencils sharpen very well, with ease of cutting through the wood casing and with the color lead core supporting a very fine point when desired.
3. The lead core seems generally resistant to breakage (a problem that can occur with most pencils, even the most expensive).
4. The pencils are physically light.
5. The set comes in 50 colors, which is a great size for lots of drawing without committing to large collection sizes.

Are these pencils as good as the best Swiss, French, and German colored pencils? No.

Over the past month, for various reasons including curiosity, I've had occasion to buy and test the basic dozen or more of colored pencils from Prang, Mercur, Crayola, RoseArt, Cra-Z-Art, Staedtler (Norris Club), and Prismacolor Col-Erase. These Crayolas are above-average in my estimation.

PROS: -- Sharpens well with hand-held sharpener. These folks who had their colored pencils chewed up with every re-sharpening, were they using an electric sharpener? Because you shouldn't, not even on kid-type pencils like these. I prefer the two-hole manual Staedtler barrel sharpener (SKU 31901 93963) because it has a regular hole for lead (which they call, more correctly, "graphite") pencils and a slightly larger one for "graphite + colour." Designed in Germany, manufactured in China. The user can sharpen a colored pencil conservatively to expose as little tip as possible or more aggressively (grind harder) to get more of the side of the color rod showing for shading purposes. I have sketched these Crayola colored pencils in an art book and tried each time to overwhelm or break them under pressure, and they didn't; and then I hand-sharpened them to expose as much color core as possible; they still didn't break but left nice shaded color.

-- An almost incredibly wide range of colors. While the colors are bold and cheerful, they aren't as candy-colored as Crayola's traditional crayons though some of the colors -- or at least color concepts -- are the same (remember "Violet Red"?). This assortment contains seven shades of blue alone, most quite handsome except that I think turquoise is a little too green. Yellow is pretty much a wash-out because of the wash-out effect of our yellow sun; most such art media don't do a good job with yellow.

Never assume colored pencils are for children. Never assume that a cheap art item is a poor quality art item. Crayola, for me, are best known as the most afforadable and widely ranged set of pencils on the market.

They have hard lead that gives very smooth laydown. With these pencils, it is always best to start out light and layer your colors until you get a sleek, natural result.

The problem with Crayola is that the lead is too hard for blending, i.e, 'pushing' the colors into one another. If you are the type of artist who is into such things, I suggest Prismacolor pencils. But you can mix a little with a white Crayola pencil, so give it a try if you like.

Overall, wonderful for hardcore traditional artists or beginning scribblers. It definately won't burn a hole in your pocket.

I am a college student who loves coloring books. So sue me. It brings structure to my life.
Anyway, I've been using Crayola for my entire school career- including now. The colors are vivid, there's a lot of variation, and my coloring books are full of color. I have yet to need a sharpener or had one break on me (granted I'm not a very intense color-er).
Whether you're buying for a toddler or a college student of your own, I'd recommend this set.

This is an excellent set of colored pencils. They are thin, but very long. I have uploaded a picture for comparison.

This set is great! People here talk about how great this set is for young kids, but I am 15 and I think this set is wonderful! My friend uses them all the time, and the results she gets are wonderful. I doubt she could live without them!
