Not only is the shape a teaching tool, it also allows kids to create fine and thick washes of color of varying intensity.
The crayons are made in Hestand, Kentucky from USA-grown and processed Kosher soy wax. Their vibrant colors come from mineral-based pigments.
They are certified non-toxic, conform to ASTM 4236 and are CPSIA compliant. The crayons can be eaten BUT do pose a choking hazard for small children. Please use an appropriate level of supervision with little ones under 3.
Each draw-string bag comes with 16 assorted colors.
