Crayola 120 Count Crayons: What's Inside the Box

Overview and Review
The 120 count Crayola box of crayons is a dream come true for any child or adult. There are so many colors inside the box. When I was young I would sort all my crayons in color order over and over again. I still love sorting crayons in color order over and over again. My kids love doing it too. I recently gave my daughter a box of 120 crayons. She even takes them outside to color with friends. I would definitely recommend sorting in color order to make it easy find the color needed. I love that these boxes have come down a lot in price too. It definitely makes them more affordable.

64 Count Crayola Crayons: What's Inside the Box

Overview and Review
When I was little girl all I wanted was a 64 pack of crayons. I ABSOLUTELY loved the color variety and the smell of the crayons. It was the biggest box available then. Even though there are larger sizes of boxes available now, the 64 count box is still a great box to get. There is enough color variation in the box to provide lots of different shades. What is even better is the box is a lot cheaper now then it was back then because there are so many larger boxes available. My daughter has had two of these boxes, this standard 64 count box and the Star Wars box of crayons. I highly recommend the 64 count box of crayons.

America's Top 50 Crayons: What's Inside the Box

In 2001 Crayola put together a plastic container of crayons that were America's Favorite Top 50 crayons. The Top 50 crayons were obtained by the Crayola Color Census. Crayola conducted their own Census the same time the United States was conducting the Census 2000. Crayola put special gold wrappers on the crayons and the ranking from the census. Blue was the most popular color! I would love for crayola to do this contest again and see how it has changed.

Crayola also ranked the colors in Canada in 2000. They only included 8 crayons in their final box. The most popular colors in order were: blue, red, violet, green, magenta, carnation pink, orange, and yellow. (source http://www.crayoncollecting.com/ccolor31.htm)

Mr. Sketch Scented Crayons

Overview and Review
I absolutely love scented crayons. The Mr. Sketch Scented crayons did not disappoint. The crayon come in twistable form. The colors were super vibrant when applied to the paper and the smell was very distinct. I do have to admit when there was more than 3 or 4 colors on the paper the scents started to combine and smell like a bowl full of fruit loops. I especially like the scents, black raspberry, mint and white vanilla icing. I even compared them to the Crayola Silly Scents, check it out here.

The Construction Paper crayons, Gel FX crayons, Washable crayons and Metallic crayons. These crayons were given out as samples of new crayon boxes around the same time these boxes were debuted. The Construction Paper crayons came out in 1998, the Gel FX crayons came out in 2001, The Metallic crayons came out in 2000. These boxes were probably given out to promote those crayons.
