    Favorites of mine as a child… and favorites of mine still today! Crayons! Crayons are great when you get one of those creative urges and just need to draw. Crayons aren’t nearly as messy as markers, and they don’t need to be sharpened as often as colored pencils. The best part about crayons, though, is that if you don’t have a sharpener you can just peel the paper off and keep drawing.This Crayola set has always been my personal favorite. 64 classic colors including your basics (red, blue, yellow, etc) AND your favorites (macaroni and cheese, tickle-me-pink, etc). As if getting the crayons isn’t enough, they throw in a courtesy sharpener on the back of the box. This sharpener is really handy when you’re focused on your current work of art and don’t have time to get up and walk to a stationary sharpener.Another bonus about this box, versus something laughable like RoseArt, is the way the rows of crayons are arranged. They implemented the “stadium seating” feature in this box for quick and efficient switching between colors. You won’t find yourself digging around in this box trying to find the rogue crayon that fell sideways along the bottom.My only complaint with this product is that the crayons are not very sturdy. If you push too hard while trying to emphasize something, like a bald man’s head with the “peach” crayon, it just might snap in half under the strain. This can be extremely frustrating, especially if you’ve already ruined a previous box of crayons in this way.Also, because the crayons are cylindicular in shape you have to be careful where you set them down. A few of them rolled off my desk the other day and ended up under the couch. I didn’t realize this had happened until I began vacuuming the next morning. Tickle-me-pink and Scarlet ended up lodged in the mouth of the vacuum cleaner tube, and it took forever to get them out!One last concern. Crayola says these crayons are non-toxic, but that does NOT mean they are ok to eat. I know it’s hard to resist that macaroni-and-cheese crayon (I’ll be honest, I took a bite out of mine), but don’t let the name fool you. NONE of these crayons taste like their name.

    They’re crayons, how can you go wrong… Strangely enough, my kid asked for crayons for Christmas. It’s not like she doesn’t have a million of them in boxes all over the house, she wanted “new ones”. What kid doesn’t like using a fresh crayon?! Six bucks to make her happy, totally worth it.
