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.

Crayola Wedges Cones & Domes Markers: What's Inside the Box

Crayola came out with the Wedges Cones & Domes markers in 1993. These markers feature 3 different tips on the Crayola marker. One is a wedge marker good for filling in lots of spaces. This one is still used today. Most notably it has been used on the Power Lines and Silly Scent markers. The cone tip which is most like the current marker tip can be used for making thin and thick lines. The dome tip is good for outlining. I have not seen this tip used recently. The pictures for this blog post were provided by Stacy Hodges.

Crayola Scented Markers: What's Inside the Box

In 1993 Crayola came out with a line of Scented Markers. At the same time they were releasing a line of scented crayons, the Magic Scents. Crayola stopped making scented crayons a few years later until 2017 when they came out with the new Silly Scent line of Twistable crayons. Crayola has been making scented markers for a long time since. Even when they stopped making specific boxes they still included scented markers with Super Tips markers.

These boxes include many fun scents. The outdoor scents even include calamine lotion. Why anyone would want to smell that is beyond me, but that is what they put in.

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)
