Coloring Book Crayons and Markers: What's Inside the Box

Crayola came out with the Coloring book markers and Crayons in the late 1990's. The markers said they were a low bleed option for coloring books. Markers do often bleed through to the other page. I do not know if these were made especially for coloring books or a feature of the regular marker, but marketed as low bleed because they were low bleed anyway. The crayons appear to just be a normal crayon formulation, but specialty colors that look good in coloring books.

Crayola later expanded the Coloring Book line to Pip-Squeak markers in the 2000's. They are a specialty set of markers picked out to color with in coloring books.  Four of the colors are not included in the standard 16 Pip-Squeak set, tiny toad brown, blue jay, butterfly orange, and desert flower.
