Ford Crayola 8 Count Crayons with Coloring Book

One of the coolest things about collecting crayons is not only seeing the history of crayons, but the history of so many other aspects of history. How? Because Crayola often partners with other brands and companies to release crayon boxes and such. In 1996 Crayola released a "Ford" branded box of crayons with an accompanying book. This book was a comic book with a few coloring pages focused on recycling. The next year Ford partnered with Crayola and Sesame Street to release a road trip/car safety coloring book. There are so very beautiful color pages. Elmo and Big Bird are on the cover with their seat belts. During this same time period Folksam, Saab and Ford worked on a seat belt reminder. Now that is in every car today. I wonder if the timing of this coloring book set came at the same time as the seat belt reminder for marketing purposes. Here are the crayon boxes and coloring books.
