Top Customer Reviews
When I bought these I feel like I didn't really know what I was getting. I spent a premium thinking I was getting true beeswax crayons. The product description even states 100% PURE BEESWAX. This is NOT true. Stockmar crayons, as I came to find out, have very little beeswax in them. 10% in fact. They are made from the same paraffin junk that a lot of other crayons are made of. Sure they color nice, but I don't think I would have spent so much on a box of crayons had I known the ingredient list still contained things I did not like. I am looking to replace these with non-paraffin crayons.
But if my little color-er notices a big difference, maybe the crayon-lover in your life will notice a difference, too.
The tin is excellent to store the eight crayons in and makes them seem a bit more special than regular crayons. It also protects them from getting stepped on and broken, which would be disappointing given the cost. When these run down eventually, I will probably buy another box.
Note: attached is a picture drawn with these crayons--it was drawn in a hurry ("Before Daddy gets home!") but it shows a few of the shades of color.
Stockmar crayons are unlike the usual cheap petroleum-based crayons you buy in the store. The colors are incredibly vibrant. The red - one of my favorites - isn't just red like you get in a box of Crayolas, it's this deep, intense, velvet color. The same is true of the other colors to varying degrees, the red, blue and purple being the best in the tin.
I like that they're made in Germany and I feel safe with my kids handling them on a daily basis, that they're made of beeswax. And I'll tell you unlike Crayolas, these actually smell pleasant, and not overwhelming. We do own some Crayolas, and I find I can hardly take the smell. To me, they smell even stronger than when I was a kid. The beeswax smell, on the other hand, is mild.
The Stockmar crayons are really thick - a generous size - and easy to grasp for little hands just learning to color and draw.
However, what I like most about this set of crayons in comparison with Stockmar's larger sets, is that there is no real guesswork when it comes to the colors. Even though the names of the colors are all in German, the 8 sticks are different enough that they'd be impossible to confuse with one another. In the larger 16-pack, we often confused colors like true red, with the brown-red, because the color of the stick was too similar. Especially once the girls had torn the labels off the crayons, telling them apart is nearly impossible unless you are in really bright light, or you'd find out once you began to draw. As similar as some of the sticks look in the larger pack, the colors on the paper were drastically different.
Overall, I would highly recommend these over any other crayons on the market. They're much nicer, completely safe, manufactured in a reputable country, and very long lasting. Our first set is only halfway through its life after countless hours of coloring and drawing over a two-year span.
