Crayola crayons have been around for quite a long time now – in fact the first box was created in 1903! The best Crayola products for kids however, contains a lineup that includes not only crayons but some other creative inventions as well.
For 2010, here are the top three best selling Crayola products for kids:
1. Crayola Coloring Pages – The coloring pages from Crayola are available in a huge number of different themes that tend to be favorites of either boys or girls. Some examples include Disney Cars pages, Dora the Explorer, Toy Story, Disney Princesses and many more. They also come in “giant” or “mini” sizes and have paper that can either be used with crayons or special kids’ markers.
2. Crayola Magnetic Double Easel – This is a very special easel for kids which has a dry erase board as one surface, while the opposite side is a chalkboard. The dry erase board can be used with special Crayola dry erase markers for kids – or with “dry erase crayons” which sometimes parents prefer due to the fact that they tend to be neater to use, with less mess. Also as the name implies, the easel is magnetic, allowing kids to play with numbers, letters or other toys with magnets attached to the back.
3. Crayola Crayon Maker – The crayon maker might just be my top favorite in the lineup due to the fact that it provides a way for kids to create crayons which is fun in itself, but it also gives kids the opportunity to melt down old “nubby” crayons and create new sharp ones out of them. This particular product from Crayola is recommended for kids age 8 and older and is becoming apparently more popular over time – and might just be one of the best selling “toys” for Christmas this year!
The short list above of the best Crayola products for kids gives but a minor taste of what is actually available. These days one can find everything from toys that allow kids to use light to create pictures, a dome that lights up pictures that are drawn on it – and there is also a special line of books and markers that allow kids to create with wonderful color – the markers only work with the special paper so that there is no “extra color” going on furniture, walls, etc.
If someone is shopping for a great product that will be a hit with kids – almost without exception – Crayola products this year are definitely a good bet.
