Crayola Blenders and Basics Colored Pencils: What's Inside the Box

I think my mom got me the Crayola Blenders and Basics colored pencils, but I can not remember.  I absolutely loved these pencils when I was younger and still do. They are my go to pencils for shading. There are 36 colors and 24 pencils, 12 of them are double sided.  The blender colors include a light  color on one side and dark color on the other.  Crayola recently came out with the aged up dual ended colored pencils, those ones are not light and dark, but rather contrasting colors.  The blender pencils can be used to achieve a multitude of shading.  Crayola also put helpful blending techniques on the back of the boxes.

It is interesting to note that the both of the boxes have a code number on the back of the box, probably to differentiate them in production.  Also I wonder if the order slip would still work. I should try sending it in.

  1. I long since lost most of my colored pencils but still have a handful mixed in with my prismacolors. The skin tone one is awesome.
