Playon Crayons

An innovative design makes these crayons as fun to play with as they are to color with.

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.

Gave these to my two year old granddaughter at a party, and all of the older children loved them, too. Great shape - and they can put their fingers inside while coloring. She was having trouble with other crayons breaking, but these don't. Color is difficult to transfer though, because the wax is very hard.

Terrible packaging, OK product

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.

      I bought these for my kids nearly 40 years ago-they lasted for through all 4 kids and was so happy to find them still available to now give to my grandchildren. This speaks volumes to their quality and their usefulness!

                      I got these for my two year old son. He loves that he can put them on his fingers and stack them. If I could change one thing it would be the quality of the writing with them - they draw very light but my son still enjoys them for the novelty aspects that other crayons can't provide!
