Crayola Target Pick Your Pack Series

The Pick Your Pack Series from Target is a fun series of specially designed boxes that began in 2011 It features mostly 8 count boxes.  They usually come out with back to school supplies in August and are usually in same section as school supplies.  I can not wait to see what they are going to have for 2015!

These boxes have been very hard to collect, well at least the first boxes.  They were in limited supply and not sold in every store. I heard about them and did not make it over to Target to get them. That is a common occurrence when collecting crayons, you have to get them when they are available, because they are usually only available for a limited time. I have not made that mistake again with this series. Here are all of them.  The duplicates are similar except they changed the Only at Target to Pick Your Pack, except Pixie Dust, I had two of that one for some reason.

The Pick Your Pack series began in 2011 with 31 box designs. It has continued every year after that.

In 2012, 13 new box designs were introduced.

In 2013, 18 boxes were introduced with 7 brand new box designs and 9 existing box designs tweaked ever so slightly. The bottom left corner was changed from Exclusively at Target to "Pick Your Pack".

In 2014, 3 new 8 count boxes were introduced and 6, 16 count boxes were created from exist box designs. Walmart also rolled out 16 count boxes in their line. I like the 16 count boxes because they give more color options for the theme.

This series gets way confusing to store and to collect. There are some very subtle differences each year and quite often the boxes from year to year will jump into each others bags.  How do they do that? Also there is not always the same number of boxes each year, so it's not like you know how many to look for. You can only buy these in the store, and not all the boxes are available at the same time at every store. It can gets confusing knowing which boxes I already have and do not have when I check back at the store. Even though the boxes are not sold online sometimes, not all the time they list the boxes online, so that can be helpful in knowing what to look for.  I keep a running list on my phone and now I have this website! It helps a ton being organized, but I still have many extras of various boxes.

My daughter's favorite ones are the Glitterati series and Over the Rainbow series 16 count boxes.
