Crayola Colour Bursts and Color Mix-Up Crayons: What's Inside the Box and History

I love collecting specialty Crayola Crayons.  These are the Colour Bursts and Color Mix-Up's from 1997.  They were called Colour Bursts in Canada and Color Mix-Up's in the US. There are three colors in every crayon.  I am looking on finding the patent information for these crayons. The Color Mix-Up box and picture is from Stacy Hodges collection.  I love the unique names of the crayons on the wrappers such as: shrimp and cocktail, baby's blanket.

It is interesting to note that the code numbers on the the Color Mix-Up's are 200W and the Colour Bursts 235.  235 was the designation for Canada. The US versions of the crayons also contain the crayon color combination, whereas the Canadian version contains the french name of the crayon)
