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.

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 was hesitant to purchase these, just from the point that it is a very small amount of crayon for the price, but decided the idea was cute and thought the experience of using the smooth rounded edged stone shaped crayons would be a fun tactile experience. I was dissappointed to find a gaping indentation on the backsides of the stones. I felt they should have shown an image of the backsides of the crayon rocks. I would not have purchased them if I had known they were not uniformly rounded and smooth and had a gaping indentation on the backside. I really thought they would have been made with more care and quality craftmanship, but instead I felt gypped and that they had been hastily and cheaply made. I have to add though, that they do color nicely, without having to apply much pressure.

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 3-year-old grandsons LOVE these "lava rocks."I sent these to my twin grandsons because they use a warming tray to make beautiful melted-wax masterpieces. I had not been able to find crayons that were not wrapped in paper and these seemed to do the trick. I am not sure whether they have used them with the hot tray but I received a video of them in the thick of fantasy play with these beautifully-shaped little crayons. They imagine that they are lava rocks and that each of the 16 vibrant colors represents a different temperature of lava. They trade them and examine them for just the right color for the picture they are drawing. The shapes are just perfect for holding in their little hands and the vibrant colors stimulate all kinds of flights of fantasy. They would also look good in an Easter basket as long as the children were warned not to eat them! I LOVE this new kind of crayon and so do my grandsons. And if they ever get around to using them with the hot tray -- it will save a lot of crayon peeling (a task I never much enjoyed). I am so happy to have stumbled across these little gems. And the red velvet bag makes them all the more esciting. Good job Crayon!
