Fun at Your Fingertips

These sculptural crayons transform coloring into a playtime adventure. They're still the go-to tool for your children to create fantastic, colorful pictures, but instead of the usual stick shape, they take the form of hollow cones with a bulbous end. Not only is the shape great for easy gripping by little hands, but the crayons are fun to stack into towers, or arrange into patterns. They dance on fingertips like puppets, and can be threaded onto twine for a rainbow necklace. The cone shape also means that instead of rolling off the table and underneath the sofa, they spin around in playful circles. Certified non-toxic by the Art & Creative Materials Institute, USA. Packaging is 100% recyclable. Made in Korea.

    Comments about PLAYON CRAYONS:

    My daughter is really enjoying these! Only complaint is that the crayon material is a little waxy and hard to get to apply to paper, but they're durable and she likes to stack them on her fingers while she colors.

    Service and delivery comments:

    Delivery was prompt but the packaging was awful - the box was completely smashed and the crayons were scattered throughout the excessively large packaging bag. Luckily my daughter isn't picky about the condition of the box, we put them back in and it was fine enough, though I wouldn't have given it to a friend/friend's child in the condition it was after shipping.

      Comments about PLAYON CRAYONS:

      Bright and soft colors both in this collection of crayons. The shape is good for my grandbabies to hold in their little hands for control where they want the color to go. Durable even with some banging that toddlers do with anything in their hands.

      Service and delivery comments:

      Delivery was prompt. However, I purchased two boxes of these crayons and they were shipped in a huge corrugated non-padded envelope, 16"x22". The crayon boxes are small. No padding was provided in the envelope, so the boxes arrived open and not a crayon left inside the boxes. I know the crayons are durable as they were scuffed only slightly after rattling around in the huge envelope during shipping. Something else may not fare so well.

              Comments about PLAYON CRAYONS:

              I bought this product for my 7 month old since he likes to imitate me when I color with pencils. The product is just ok, we've had it for a few weeks now. I'm not sure how durable it will be. He does seem to enjoy them for a little amount of time, which is good considering his age. I sit him on a long, unrolled piece of paper and let him draw or just play with them on the floor. I think he will use them more as he gets older. I wish they were a little bigger, but my baby is big and has huge hands. Maybe I should have just bought regular crayons or at least the more durable kind of regular shaped ones. I think they are over-priced and for this reason I would not recommend them. It's funny when he puts them on his fingers though. Maybe I can review it in a few months when he's older. The product probably says for ages over 2 yrs, but I'm always watching him when he's playing with them.

              Service and delivery comments:

              My delivery was on time (to be expected. I was most disappointed with the packaging. When I received it, all of the colors were out of the casing and just in the packaging. The product was not too badly beaten in the mail.

                I love these crayons for my 20 month old. She is able to grip the bulb side and really color. The color really shows up on paper without much pressure needed, unlike the cheap imitations of these crayons I have seen. They are also super durable, my daughter has dropped them frequently and they do not break.

                Excellent product!

                Service and delivery comments:

                I bought these as a gift for someone and the package arrived but no note or free gift message that was supposed to be included was in the box. Big disappointment there :(

                    I bought these for my preschool nephew who gets frustrated drawing, coloring, and writing. He seemed to recognize their shape/design from preschool. He liked them and used them right away. The only drawback is that the crayons are very hard so you really have to press to get strong color. I assume if they were softer their shape would lead to them breaking too easily, so this makes sense. My nephew did not seem to care.
