These are a classic arent they? I used them ever since i was little and i used them all the way till the crayon got so tiny where i couldn't even use them. Other brand of crayons colors weren't that bright and pigmented. Only the crayola crayons were. I remember i had a box of crayola and other brands of crayons and my friends would only use the crayola ones. i still use them to this day, i dont know if any other crayon brands can beat them. I also recently heard that you could use these crayons as beauty products. I have never tried it but im sure it would work! Best crayons, hands down. every kid needs these crayons!
