Chubby Crayon Classpack
I love the fact these do not have paper on them. It saves time when melting them down or doing a rubbing craft project.

Not what they used to be!
I bought a box of these crayons years ago. They lasted great, vibrant color, very sturdy, and perfect for little hands.
I decided to buy another box because they were looking old and getting small. They must be using a different manufacturer, because the color is horrible. The red looks pink, the yellow is so light no matter how hard you bear down you can't see it. The green looks like a mint color, the blue like aqua, and the black like grey. All the colors are very waxy I was so disappointed. I'll use them in my art center, but can't use them during instructional activities when I'm trying to teach colors.

Very handy size for pre-writing tods
Our therapist told us to get these chubby crayons to help my 3yo with her pre-writing skills. I've been searching for these exact ones and finally found them. They are short and easy to handle. They are hardy and don't break easily. The colours are vivid though some pressure is required as compared to the Crayola Slick Stix.
Overall a wonderful product. We packed them in individual ziplocs and added into the birthday packs for my daughter's friends. : )
The box came with 8 broken pieces. The Customer Service immediately replaced a brand new box, no questions asked. I was very pleased. I was only expecting them to replace 8 pcs.

love these crayons. They are great for using with rubbing plates. I also teach the kids to use them side ways to shade in backgrounds. No more white spaces. the kids love them. We call them shadies bec. they shade in backgrounds of our pictures. Great value!

Works, but smaller than expected.
The price is right, but I was disappointed that the crayons are shorter than most. Next time I will probably get the larger toddler crayons that also have paper around them, even though they cost more.
