Product Description

From the Manufacturer

The bright colors of these crayons will encourage your child's creativity and the unique triangular shape will help develop the preferred grip for later writing skills. They are made of plastic, not wax, for additional durability and their easy to grasp design, won't allow them to roll away. A flip-top case makes clean-up and travel a snap.

The crayons are also very vibrant in color.
Mother of 2
I also love that they don't roll off a table and come in a nice little carry case -- great for trips to the restaurant.

These crayons are very durable and the triangle shape makes them easy to hold for young hands.

While these crayons do break (if, for example, your toddler leaves them on the floor and you or your husband steps on them, they are likely to break) it would take a lot of concentrated effort to break them while drawing. They are very durable.

We also like that:
-Apparently they do not taste as good as Crayola crayons. My dedicated wax-eater took one bite and has not aimed them at her mouth since.
-They do not have wrappers so your toddler does not need you to repeatedly "open it".
-They come in a fairly durable, handy plastic case.
-They are triangular an thus, do not roll (under the couch, for example).

Cons:
-I have a hard time seeing how I could efficiently sharpen these. Advice in the comments section (besides using one of my dear kitchen knives) is welcome...

My daughter has used the Crayola jumbo-sized crayons and while those are not bad, these are definitely superior. In my opinion, they are worth the price.

Edited 24 January 2011:

I will also add that now, two years later, we bought the new Crayola triangle crayons since these were getting a little worn down. One month after the Christmas Crayola fiasco, we have two of the triangular Crayola crayons, and we still have all of the original Melissa and Doug ones (and the box). The Crayolas broke one after another and the (new) baby got irritated by the paper. I have nothing against Crayola, and we have a lot of their other products. I just thought M&D deserve the credit for an amazingly sturdy product.

From the mother of a 2.5 year-old:

First, let me say that I didn't realize these came in a plastic case. This is so great, since my son tends to rip apart the typical paper/cardboard crayon boxes on the first day. The case has a clear lid w/ a hinge, and placeholders (little cut-ins that the pointed edge of the triangle can sit it) for each crayon which make it really easy for my son to constantly put them into and then take out of the box over and over.

As far as the quality of the crayons, these have not broken yet and appear to be very difficult to break (provided we can keep them away from the dog, of course). The crayons are thicker and longer than the Crayola triangular crayons, which we've come to learn break very easily. I think the number of crayons in the set (10) is perfect - it provides a good variety of colors to choose from.

I highly recommend these crayons. Try them, you'll be impressed! And your kid(s) will be too!

My sister-in-law gave these to my son for Christmas, shortly before he turned 3. They are great crayons; they color well, they are easy to grip, they don't roll around, the case is easy to open, and because they are fairly fat, they don't break into several pieces like the slender Crayola crayons. In fact, these are the only crayons I will turn him loose with, as the others break into pieces which then get ground into the carpet.

My toddlers loved these crayons when I got them as party favors. So did the other kids. I loved them too - durable, nice colors. Until I found one of my kids had drawn on a wall and the "crayons" would not wash off!

I tried soap and water which did nothing. Clorox wipes didn't work either. Goo Gone turned the scribblings into a huge dark smudge that melded into the wall's paint. Only Magic Eraser has cleaned some of it off, with a lot of elbow grease. I've had to do it gently though as it really stains and the wall color is starting to come off. My only remaining solution is to paint the wall.

Alas, my choice of party favors carried this misery to other parents too. One quietly mentioned the crayons did not wash off, as she quickly hid them on a playdate. Honestly, I threw ours out. If you have them, use them under strict supervision - they might be impossible to remove from delicate surfaces like wood.

So, kuddos for Melissa and Doug for inventing a prastic "crayon" that kids cannot break easily and that the LOVE to draw with. But please, have a warning of some sort for parents that it is not washable and is permanent, like Sharpie pens do!

I got to this product by searching on "washable crayons", so somehow I did not notice that they are NOT washable before I bought them. (Thanks a lot, Amazon search engine!) I was searching for an alternative to Crayola Washable Crayons; which although they have several nice features, were shredded and pulverized by my 2 year old within a couple of months, with lots of cleanup by me.

The Melissa and Doug Jumbo Triangular Crayons are (as other people have written) durable and easy to hold, and work just fine as a coloring device. So I like them for those features.

The problem is, that in the first hour of use, my child had sneaked off into the other room and used one to color my LCD HDTV. Not just a little bit, either, but the whole viewing surface. This is when I discovered that this product is NOT washable. I tried water, alcohol, and formula 409, with very little removed. Finally, Mr Clean Magic Eraser took it off. Unfortunately, the crayons (not the eraser) left subtle scratches in the surface of the LCD due to their hardness.
