Crayola True Blue Heroes Crayons: What's Inside the Box

I have been wanting to get my hand on a True Blue crayon for a while now.  The True Blue Heroes Crayola Crayons came out in 1997.  It was a national contest for kids to nominate a Hero in their lives, write an essay, and color a picture about them.  The colors to name appeared in the 64, 96, and 120 crayon boxes.  The box I have here are the ultimate winners for the contest. There was also a wooden box that contained the true blue color. I have pictures of all the artwork and essays at the bottom of the post in the booklet section.

This box features Tip the crayon in many different colors.  In 2014 Crayola officially announced Tip as Tip and in 2016 gave Tip and his friends names.

There have been other boxes that feature the True Blue name and one box of colored pencils that feature the true blue name, the 100 box of colored pencils.  The box that hold the True Blue name does not contain a true blue color name.  I wish they had put it in.
