Crayola Twistables Colored Pencils with Color Alive: What's Inside the Box

I mostly bought the Crayola Twistables colored pencils this year because of the new color alive inserts in both of them.  I do not normally buy the new boxes of the classic colors because there are so many and I like to focus the storage space I have on the specialty sets, but this year I was excited to get Color Alive coloring book sheets. I do wish I had more of the classic colors, or at least their style and code numbers, to better tell the story of Crayola.  I plan on putting all the ones I have online in the near future. I plan on using them with my kiddos, making a copy of it and having them color it over and over.

I love the new box design for the Twistables, they were in a plastic packaging before, but they have changed to the standard colored pencils packaging.  I like the colors and swirl design on the twistables, the colored pencils are black.  What I do not like is that they do not have the color names on them anymore :( I really like color names to be on the writing instrument. It appears to be the first year this particular 18 count box is being sold (I think it was the addition of the fluorescent colors), and for the 30 count box, it appears there are at least 12 other prior boxes.

2015 Twistables Color Alive Inserts


  1. Sky Blue came Back in 50 Pack

  2. Sky Blue has Returned in 50 Pack

  3. My twistables came in a purple carry case that the crayons snapped into. It also came with paper to color on. They did not have the color names on them either. I don't know the year I bought them but I have had them for at least 2 years now. I wish they had the color names on them as well.

  4. I got the 30 count pencils and the twistable crayons as well, not sure what set on those. I really hate it when any coloring medium doesn't have the color on it or at least some kind of identifying mark as to the color name, heck I wouldn't have minded if they'd put a number on the barrel and put the same number on the swatch dot on the box just so I can match up the colors. As is I'm going to try to swatch these and match the pencils to the colors and label them myself.
