Product Description

From the Manufacturer

Create unique, multicolored crayons and toys. Mix Match colorful crayon bits and melt them down with the Melt 'N Mold Factory. Then, pour into the molds to make your own custom swirled crayons. No two crayons are the same.

Product Description

With the Melt 'N Mold Factory from Crayola, you can use Crayola crayons to create custom swirled crayons and molded toys. This kit includes everything you need to melt, mold, and create: 24 full-size Crayola crayons in four different colors, two molds, and a mold holder. Designed for kids six and up, the Melt 'N Mold Factory gives you a fun way to transform crayon bits into new colors and toys.

The Melt 'N Mold Factory lets you create your own multicolored crayons and toys.
Mix, Melt, and Mold to Create Multicolored Crayons

The Melt 'N Mold Factory makes it easy to create original color combinations and molded objects. Start with an array of crayon bits--high-contrast colors such as blue and yellow or green and orange create the best results. Then add your custom combination to the melting tray, turn the dial toward the on/off switch, and watch the colors melt and blend. When the melting process is done, simply pour the melted wax into the mold of your choice to create a brand new, one-of-a-kind crayon.

Includes Two Reusable Molds and Mold Frame

The factory comes with two reusable molds. One mold makes new crayons in the traditional shape, while the other creates two ring-shaped crayons at a time. Each mold snaps easily and securely into the holder and then attaches to the factory. The Melt 'N Mold Factory is powered by any AC outlet, so there are no batteries to replace.

Expansion Packs Expand the Fun

To expand your options and create additional fun shapes, Melt 'N Mold Factory works with any of the Crayola expansion packs (sold separately). With these packs you can make Crayon Cruisers, Crayon Critters, and more.

I was really disappointed at first with this product since we could not get the crayons to melt without running it 3 or four times and it would clump up and never fill the mold since the crayon was not fully melted. Thank goodness I found a post on target saying that it was not in the instructions but the metal tray must be push in until 2 clicks are heard. In the front of the metal tray where there are 2 prongs that tray sits in the grooves of the black plastic you must push them into the groove until you hear a click on each side. When you do this the plate makes full contact with the heating elements and melts the crayons fully. It also prevents the tray from moving and falling off the track which was also a problem I had. Hope this helps everyone!!

This Crayola Melt 'n Mold Factory is rated for ages 8 and up with good reason -- younger kids will not have the patience or attention span to work with it. It is simple for older kids to use with minimal parental supervision and designed to make the risk of injury extremely small. When turned on, the lid locks into place so children can't touch the hot wax or other heated parts. The outside stays cool to the touch.

Once the broken crayons are in the melting tray, it takes several minutes for them to melt. You must then wait several more minutes before the unit cools enough to open the lid and remove the mold. Then, you must wait ten minutes before unmolding your creation. My 8 and 9 year old boys enjoyed using the included crayon and ring-shaped molds and have asked for other molds to also try. The swirled crayons do work really well and make interesting color effects.

On the down side, the metal melting tray is not easy to clean. The wax does not entirely pour out of it and into the mold, leaving you with a thin layer to scrape/wipe out. I tried oiling the try lightly, thinking it might help, but that made no difference in the ease of cleanup. I found the best way to clean the tray is to hold it under really hot tap water, wipe, and repeat until you've removed all of the wax.

If you are considering purchasing this as a way to use up old, broken crayons, keep in mind that it holds only 3 crayons worth of wax at a time, takes about half an hour to run, and requires several minutes of rather difficult clean-up time. If you think you're going to create a bunch of custom crayons as party favors or classroom gifts, this is not the way to do it. However, it is a fun project for kids who are capable of waiting.

Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
I was actually excited about this product...I'm going to melt some crayons down! Yeah recycling! I'm all about figuring out ways to maximize crayon investments. But, really this product was rather clumsy, awkward to use at times and we ended up with a lot of brown crayons, because unless you are standing over this thing for the ten minute stretch and catching it at the exact moment of perfect crayola melt magicness -- it hardens back up and you have a tray of melted wax. You would think they would have an alert or timer ring on this thing? Was there supposed to be and ours just didn't work?

It is not for anyone that wants to actually melt their crayons and make them into something else. It is just a novelty. Something to look at and go -- woo my crayons are melting! I've seen cute blog posts where you just pop the crayons in the oven and melt them into silicon trays. I think if you are looking for things to do with your crayons that option is MUCH better.

Is it something fun for the kid to do? Sure.

Will they get bored? Yup.

Does it work perfectly? Nope. There is always wax left.

But, making those crayola rings was pretty cool.

I don't think investing the 40+ dollars into Crayola Melt 'n Mold Factory is worth the investment.

I'm a big fan of Crayola and being the mom of an 8 and 6 year old, we go through crayons like nothing! So what's one to do with all of those crayon scraps?

Crayola came up with the idea of the Melt N' Mold Factory, which I think is a fabulous idea. All you do is take your crayon scraps, place theme in the melting tray, turn the timer and wait. The melting device melts the crayons, then you tip the melted wax into the mold (you can buy different molds of course, although they're hard to find in stores). You let the molds dry, then you can pop out your new crayon shapes.

It does require adult supervision, but it's designed so that children can do it on their own. The machine is very sturdy although it is difficult to clean the tray. I think it's a great machine, but the only negative is the amount of time it takes to melt the crayons and let them harden up in the mold. It's too bad the tray isn't bigger and you can't make more than 2 molds at a time. Great idea, but hopefully Crayola will take these critiques into mind and come up with something even better.

Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
My kids were so excited to try this product, as was I because we have an enormous container of broken crayon stubs I was hoping to repurpose (even though the kit does include 25 or so crayons in case you don't have your own). The instructions were easy to follow, the safety mechanisms worked well (though both of my kids keep trying to turn the knob the "wrong" direction--to speed it up--even though the instructions said this would break it), and the first crayon we made (ring shaped) worked moderately well. BUT that was it. I couldn't get it to make another one--it wouldn't heat enough a second time, and wouldn't melt the crayons well enough, and when I'd try pouring the freshly-melted wax it would get stuck on the old wax that was hardened on the front of the tray, which resulted in a solid layer that was 4 mm thick, so almost none of the liquid wax made it down into the mold. Although I could twist the knob back to "reheat," the light wouldn't turn on (maybe it sensed that it was already warm?), so we had to let it finish the entire 30-minute cycle before trying again, which was really annoying. Finally when it had finished I was able to remove the tray and studiously scrape off all the wax residue with a thumbnail (which was really messy and left little tiny scraps of crayon all over my fingers and table), and we tried again with that... and it still didn't melt it all the way. So on a THIRD try it finally melted, but with 3 crayons (the max allowed) in the top, it only filled up 1 of the 3 crayons in the mold below (and they're 3/4 size so there should have been plenty of wax for at least 2 of them).

This is all made more frustrating because each cycle takes 30 minutes and the SECOND you turn it on it locks, so you can't speed it up or attempt a reheat or anything else. You just.
