Facebook Limited Edition Gold Medal Crayons: What's Inside the Box

In April 2013 Crayola announced a contest on Facebook, the Colorful Nickname Contest which was part of the Crayola's Birthday Adventure.  It was the 110th anniversary of the first pack of Crayola crayons.  The contest coincided with the Grand Opening of the Crayola Experience in Easton, Pennsylvania. During the month Facebook users submitted new names for the original 8 pack of Crayola Crayons. In May 2013 the new names were announced. It is interesting to note that last names were given just the last initial.

2013 8 Facebook Crayons

In late May there was a link on Crayola's Facebook page to buy these new crayons for 4.99 a pack.  It was kind of pricey for an 8 pack of Crayons, but they made up for the price later with a special surprise.

Later that year Crayola surprised fans by sending them the 64 count box of Limited Edition crayons with the Facebook named crayons inside for free! As a side note, I didn't receive 5 boxes of crayons even though I bought 5 boxes originally. None the less I was ecstatic to get my box. Other crayon collectors told me they received the boxes, but I had moved in between.  Luckily I knew they were coming and called the post office to make sure they were forward.  You can imagine how happy I was when I got my letter! I've even saved the box they came in!

Here's what's inside the 64 count box.
