2008 Crayola 50th Birthday Crayons

The 64 box turned 50 in 2008 and Crayola put out 3 boxes that I know of to celebrate the box. There is also a tin that I will include in this post later. The 64 box was originally released in 2008. One of them the 64 crayons with candles was actually released in 2007 but it was designed for the year 2008, the anniversary of the 64 box. For the sake of identifying the boxes I have used the code numbers which are the last 3 numbers of the box on the back to differentiate the boxes. I got the first two boxes from the Crayola store in Kansas City and the last box from a fellow collector.

There were 7 kids choice crayons included in in each box and 1 color of courage. The colors included were famous, awesome, fun in the sun, super happy, best friends, happy ever after, bear hug and courage. The Color of Courage was made "For the Kids of St. Jude Children's Research Hospital." I think one of my boxes were missing the color of courage colors unfortunately, but that is what happens when crayons are bought from someone else.
