Crayola has always been the first name in coloring innovation, so it’s surprising it wasn’t the company behind the recent trend in adult coloring books. But now it’s showing everyone how it’s done with its own line of wonderfully-detailed coloring books targeted at those who are already masters of staying within the…
Is there still a place for traditional stop-motion animation techniques now that most films jut rely on computer graphics? As long as 3D animation software takes months and months to master, of course there'll be. And Crayola's new Color Alive Easy Animation Studio wants to help inspire kids to be the next Ray…
Coloring books might seem like an antiquated plaything given all the drawing and painting apps available for tablets, but learning to master a colored pencil or crayon and stay within the lines helps develop hand-eye coordination. So instead of trying to convince kids to put down their tablets (or phones) Crayola's…
This. Is. Oh god. Let's all pop an Ambien and watch Mr. Rogers explain how the Crayola factory line works, friends: Or, if you are like Mr. Rogers, some acid will work too.
We're all kind of old. It's okay! Happens to everyone. And while our collective childlike wonder at the world has been gradually erased by the realities of Life, there are still a few simple things that wield the power to make us go "Ooooh." Crayons are kind of like that.
It's been said that while good artists copy, great artists steal. But what about those lacking any artistic talent at all? They trace, and their copied creations will be all the more authentic with Crayola's new Sketch Wizard contraption that lets anyone reproduce sketches of other pictures, or even 3D models.
Right Said Fred knew the appeal of the catwalk, and now kids can get in on the glitz and glamor with this new coloring book from Crayola that lets them design custom clothes and then see their creations virtually modeled.

Remember when you were a kid and you'd bug your parents for bigger and bigger marker sets so you could get exactly the shades you wanted? It turns out that's not an issue for today's kids. As long as they can convince their parents to cough up $25 (although $40 at Amazon) for Crayola's miniature marker factory, they…
Children are drawn to the iPad like flies to honey, but children are also notoriously bad at taking care of their toys. And if the thought of a young'n bashing away at your tablet's display with a pen leaves you anxious, Griffin's got you covered with a glowing stylus that lets them draw in mid-air.
The holidays are quickly approaching and you know what that means: you don't have a lot of time left to find some way to distract annoying kids that could be visiting. Thankfully Griffin's got you covered with a new Crayola dual-tipped stylus for creating anaglyph 3D images on a touchscreen device.
On the left, a fine selection of Roseart crayons left in the sun for over 12 hours. Barely a trickle, I'm sure you'll agree. On the right, the damage of just 3.5hours' sun on a pack of Crayolas is evident.
I think we're all in agreement that styluses are stupid objects designed for products unworthy of our time. Now that's settled, let's take a look at one I'd actually buy—it's cute, and even comes with a Crayola app.
At least that's what the creator of this product hopes your child will say when they get these crayons, which are labeled with the actual chemical used to give each colored wax stick its hue.
Here's an idea I can get behind. Edible crayons! Luxirare created a box of eight colors (flavors?), using household ingredients such as nuts, sesame seeds and melted marshmallow for the white crayon.
He'd been working on them for six years, but John Coker successfully launched his Crayola crayon rockets in the Nevada desert. Only four of the eight worked properly, but they managed to soar to 2,928 feet.
I love this timeline, showing the evolution of Crayola's crayons from 1903—eight colors, including poop—to 120 colors today. Now, imagine PC graphics running on Crayola's Law, which states that the number of hues doubles every 28 years:
