I wanted crayons that I felt good about giving my toddler but that were also easy ...
on December 15, 2015
I purchased these for my toddler (now twenty months old) about eight months ago. I wanted crayons that I felt good about giving my toddler but that were also easy to hold and color with so we did quite a bit of searching. After reading a few reviews and talking with a couple of moms at playgroup we decide on these and we've had them for about eight months now. At first I was a little disappointed- my daughter wanted nothing to do with them and yes there are some awfully dark colors included in the box (about half were dark and half were brighter colors that you would see in a traditional crayon box). However, we have yet to break a single crayon! We have the thick triangle crayons, beeswax crayons, over-sized crayons, etc. and my daughter has never failed to break all of them at one point or another but she hasn't broken these at all (which I was surprised about because I thought they seemed thin when I opened the box). At twenty months she colors just as happily with these as typical crayons and though the colors aren't as bright I love how sturdy they are and she loves the fun star shapes. Overall I'm giving them four out of five stars because they are a little on the expensive side and a bit dark but if they can survive my toddler they deserve at least four stars.
