My First Crayola Washable Crayons Review (Crayola)

What It Is

Crayola's My First Crayola line is designed to introduce toddlers to all types of arts & crafts tools and supplies. My First Crayola Washable Crayons have a chunky design, making them easy for toddlers' small hands to grasp and helping develop fine motor skills. Each crayon holder is an animal character: a blue panda and a red pig. The rounded crayon holders help children with what Crayola calls Stage 1: Palm Grip. The holder fits right in a child's palm, and when a child's fingers fold over the crayon in a grip, he or she can color, scribble, and create his very first works of art. The crayons come in packs of two and use Crayola's triangular crayons. As the crayon wears down, push the button on the top of the holder and twist to advance or retract the crayon.

Is It Fun?

The character-shaped crayon holders do more than just look cute. Their chunky design allows toddlers who don't have the fine motor skills necessary to hold a regular crayon to color and draw just like the big kids. As kids get a little older, they'll want to graduate to more traditional crayons because they'll have developed the motor skills they need for drawing and writing as big kids. However, the My First Crayola Washable Crayons are an easy and rewarding way to get budding artists started.

Who It’s For

My First Crayola Washable Crayons are for ages 12 months and up.

What To Be Aware Of

Other My First Crayola Washable art tools include Markers and Stampers. Each is sold separately.

When you open the package for the first time, you'll want to be sure that the crayon is seated firmly in the holder. As the child wears down the crayon, you can push the button in the top and twist the body of the holder to advance or retract the crayon.

The crayons are washable and can be removed from any surface with soap and water or non-abrasive cleaner.

We recommend setting up a play area with plenty of space and paper so kids can draw and keep all the fun contained.
