What It Is

With the Alex Jr. Tots First Crayons, there is no wrong way to hold the crayons. This set of six colorful crayons encourages young children to scribble, and the crayons' triangular shape makes them easy for small hands to grip. One side of each crayon has a baby face embossed into it and the other side has a textured space in the middle that also helps small hands grip the crayon. The crayon colors are green, blue, purple, red, orange, and yellow.

Is It Fun?

Tots First Crayons is a great "first" crayon set for toddlers. The shape and textured grip marks make it easy for kids to hold and color. And as children scribble, they develop finger control, which leads to drawing, painting, and writing skills later on.

Who It’s For

Alex Jr. Tots First Crayons is for ages 18 months and up.

What To Be Aware Of

When you use these crayons, the colors aren't very rich on paper. But children in the target age group for these crayons may not notice the lack of deep colors as they play.
