“The American spirit is stronger than ever! As we’ve watched our Olympians race for the gold this summer, our pride in this country continues to grow. We at Crayola wanted to let you know that you can keep up with the heightened American pride and send your kids back-to-school with high-quality products that are made right here in the USA. There are few items that are still under $2 and made right here in America, but Crayola’s regular-sized crayons, a quintessential back-to-school supply, is one of those.”
Seriously, what says back to school better than a nice new box of Crayola crayons?? I love opening a brand new pack of nice sharp crayons where none of them are broken or missing! My kids love it too. When we received a bunch of Crayola Crayon and Markers, they went crazy!! The 64-ct. crayon box was a huge hit with my girls. They have gotten so use to using their old broken crayons that these new ones were heaven. With so many colors to choose from, they spent all afternoon coloring pictures (and arguing over who got to keep the box closest to them ). My son deemed the 24-ct. crayon box as HIS and no one else is allowed to use them. The markers were a lot of fun as well and since they are washable, I don’t mind letting all of the kids (even the 2 year old) use them.
“At the manufacturing facility in Pennsylvania, Crayola makes 650 crayons per minute and up to 13.5 million crayons a day! More than 400 different crayon colors are made, including favorites such as burnt sienna, carnation pink and midnight blue. On average, the company makes 3 billion crayons a year, enough to circle the world six times!”
There are a lot of crayon brands out there….however, I have learned the hard way that all crayons are NOT created equal. Not even close!! I have given up trying out other brands of crayons because in my opinion, they just can’t compare to the awesome quality that Crayola gives us. They don’t break as easy, they aren’t too waxy, and they give a nice bold color every time!! We love Crayola EVERYTHING! For our back to school supplies, Crayola was the clear choice!!
“From the 8-count all the way up to the 120-count box, the company’s regular-sized crayons, including reds, whites, blues and every color in between are all made in Easton, Pennsylvania. Crayola makes their crayons using the finest pigments for intense color, and is a special blend of that colored pigment, along with paraffin wax for smoothness and clay for strength. A dedicated workforce of over 1,200 help to create these high-quality crayons that will land in the backpacks of students and in classrooms across the nation. So why not send your kids off to school this year with the best tools to help them perform their best and bring their original ideas to life?”
