I Magine) : (Dollar store brand)

This is the local store brand at Dollar store. At the Price of 33 cents – if Price is a factor these crayons are a good buy.

  • Pro :
  • Great price
  • great colors-already sharpened
  • paper wrapped with colors
  • Con
  • Non toxic wax ( But type not stated on box) Goggle says soy wax
  • Colors are waxy in looks, and even though great colors they are hard to get a true color on pages.
  • break with little pressure from coloring.

My personnel opinion – You get what you pay for with Crayola Crayons. Shop around this Back to School season and find the bargains out there.

Coloring and drawing both help kids improve fine motor skills. They also train the brain to focus. For parents and teachers, these inexpensive activities require limited preparation and are well-suited to travel. So enjoy and Color! Lisa
