One of my favorite memories from my childhood is the excitement of opening a fresh box of Crayola crayons. Really, is there any other brand? I loved the sharp tips, the scent of a newly opened box, the wonderful array of colors. What a joy it was when I would get a fresh box of 64! When my children were younger and I started buying crayons for them, I tried “off brands” several times and always found myself going back to Crayola. No other crayons were as bright and smooth as good old Crayola. My kids no longer color with crayons, yet I still like to pick up the occasional box and look inside. Some of the colors from my childhood are gone and some of the new colors just don’t cut it for me, but the excitement is still there every time I open a box of Crayolas.
