My First Crayola Mess-Free Marker & Paper Review (Crayola)

What It Is

Crayola's My First Crayola line is designed to introduce toddlers to art tools and supplies designed just for them. The My First Crayola Mess-Free Marker & Paper is a kit that comes with one mess-free marker and 15 sheets of "magic" paper. The marker holder is sized right for toddlers' small hands so they can hold it securely in their palm (to practice what Crayola calls Step 1: Palm Grip). It's also designed to help toddlers with fine motor skills. The marker holder is also a cow character. When used on the "magic" paper, the marker instantly reveals bold colors and designs, but the marker does not work off of the special paper.

Is It Fun?

The character-shaped marker holder does more than just look cute. Its chunky design allows toddlers, who don't have the fine motor skills necessary to hold a regular marker, to color and draw just like the big kids. The My First Crayola Marker & Paper set is an easy and rewarding way to get budding artists started. And because the marker only works on the special paper, parents don't have to worry about accidental marks on furniture, walls, or clothes.

Who It’s For

The My First Crayola Marker & Paper set is for ages 1 and up.

What To Be Aware Of

Even though the concept is similar, the My First Crayola Mess-Free Marker & Paper set (or other My First Crayola products) does not work with Color Wonder items. As your toddler gets older, they can graduate to the Mess-Free Color Wonder products.
