“The first drawing tool for children is usually a crayon. That crayon should encourage children to put his fingers around the crayon in a correct pencil grip. A truly good crayon demands very little effort while colouring. The crayon should feel like you are colouring with a paint brush. The crayon has beautiful bright colours and it gives colour to paper very easily. The crayon should help the little fingers to gain strength and competence.”
That beautiful quote from Barbara Lee, Crayon Rocks® developer, sums up the extraordinary aspects of this crayon. Why are Crayon Rocks® so special?
