Product Description

Crayon Rocks are simply the best coloring tool for young children! They are vibrantly colored and make beautifully textured art work similar to oil pastels. These all natural soy wax crayons are made from USA grown soybeans and colored with natural mineral powders. They are designed to strengthen the tripod grip muscles in young children, preparing fingers and hands for handwriting. The shape allows small fingers to apply color in large, wide strokes. Used by occupational therapists and preschool teachers to develop fine motor skills. Crayon Rocks are non-toxic and conform to ASTM D 4236 and CPSIA. Made in rural U.S.A. by American women. Length of each crayon is approximately 1 ¼ by ¾ inch. (Images on photos may appear larger). WARNING: Choking Hazard. Not for children under 3 years. Use with appropriate supervision.

Your better off buying the jumbo triangle crayons.

It really develops the muscles in the hand and has helped my daughter a lot with her fine motor skills!

Because of their size, they could present a choking hazard for younger children.

I am a trained and experienced early childhood teacher. These are wonderful crayons and I highly recommend them! The soy wax allows these crayons to glide smoothly and blend beautifully. They are 100% natural and non-toxic. The vibrant colors come from mineral pigments. They were developed by a special ed teacher to help develop a child's tripod grasp, necessary for learning to write.

Unfortunately, because of their unique shape, many parents think that these crayons will be appropriate for babies and toddlers. They are not. These crayons are designed for children over the age of three. Because of their size, they could present a choking hazard for younger children.

So if you have a child over three, you will not be disappointed. Drawing and writing are really more appropriate activities for children over three, so if you have a baby or toddler, my advice is to wait to purchase these until your child is older.

These are for OLDER kids-- not babies. For 3-6 year olds learning how to hold crayons and pencils. The Occupational Therapist for my 3 year old son recommended these so he could learn to hold writing utensils. Great for developing fine-motor skills.

I read all the reviews here and had already left a review of the 8 piece bag but felt compelled to leave a review here too.

I have to say that the MANUFACTURER states clearly in their product description that these crayons ARE NOT FOR CHILDREN UNDER THREE as they are a choking hazard. All the folks who complained about the size or looking too much like a treat to eat who gave them to babies and toddlers should not blame the product or manufacturer!

When our daughters were 3 years old we started with the 8 color bag of these soy based crayon rocks at the suggestion of a place in town that gives art classes for kids and have been so happy with them. The reason these are so good for our household is that these crayons force the child to hold them with their finger tips, they cannot hold them with a fist, and this is exactly what we have been hoping for to help train our left handed daughter to hold writing utensils (and eating utensils) correctly. When given a regular crayon/colored pencil/marker she holds it with her fist and cannot color well within the lines or draw very fine, but with these crayons she has to use her finger tips and she can be more precise with her coloring and drawing. She notices the difference and wants to learn the correct way to hold things because she is so frustrated that she cannot draw/write/color as well as her right handed twin. They are now 4 years old and at the request of our lefty we have graduated her to the 16 color bag and she is happy to have the new colors (especially the pinks and purples) while still having something that forces her to hold the crayon correctly.

HIGHLY RECOMMENDED product.

These crayons are the best. They come in a package of sixteen and they are really shaped like small rocks. I loved them so much I bought another set. If your child has difficulty with fine motor, these crayons help alot. My son has autism and low fine motor skills, especially when it comes to writing and coloring. We previously used the regular crayons, but we would have to break them in half to help him maintain the correct grip. He would spend a lot of time trying to tear off the paper, which would make it a struggle just to get him to color. With the crayon rocks, they are just the right size and no paper to constantly tear on. His coloring has improved greatly and his fine motor skills have increased. I recommend this to anyone who has a child with fine motor skill problems. They're great!

My 3y/o is a complete artist. She colors and colors and colors some more. I've usually buy the regular crayons, but last week when I went to pick my girl up from Pre-K she was using these color rocks and was using the correct grip for holding a pen/pencil. At that moment I was sold. Her teacher told me that she loves them and the kids do too. I'm getting the 64 piece set so that they can last all year.

Cute and interesting. Easy to use and colors just like a normal crayon. Great for any child who is at the age of coloring.

I think these are more like crayon pebbles, than rocks. Maybe they will be fine for little hands, I dont know yet. I was just really disappointed when I opened the bag since I expected them to be much bigger.
