Pros:Easy transportation, provides basic colors.

Cons:No sharpener on box.

The Bottom Line: These crayons are great to take on the road as they require little space and provide all of the basic colors.


If you have a young child around the house, it is also very likely that you can find crayons.  Crayons are a great way to keep a child entertained while encouraging their creativity.  Crayola offers multiple sized sets that feature 8-150 different colors.  If you are planning to take an outing and will be bringing coloring activities, it is much easier to carry a set that is smaller but still provides the basic colors.  The Crayola Crayons 8 pack is a great solution.  Although my daughter has a nice collection of crayons in her art set, I keep a small box in her "outing" backpack.  This prevents her other colors from being lost and having to transition them back and forth.

A pack of Crayola Crayons 8 pack comes in the popular yellow and green cardboard box that they are well known for.  The box holds one single row of the eight crayons.  The box has a flap that can be tucked inside to allow the crayons to be contained when they are not in use.  This set includes the most basic of colors:  red, orange, yellow, green, blue, purple, brown and black.  When coloring or drawing a picture, these colors will fit the primary choices for a child.  Each crayon is about 2.5 inches long and 1/8 inch thick.  They are round in design.  Each crayon is made out of wax that transition onto a surface when it is pressed.  A crayon will work on any dry surface.  Crayon marks can be removed much easier than a marker and often result in less mess.  Crayola does offer washable varieties that are much easier to remove than their standard product.

Although there are many makers of crayons, Crayola has the superior product.  These crayons leave a smooth even color when pressed on paper.  If you do put too much pressure on the surface, larger pieces may come off resulting in a messy appearance.  As compared to other brands, the overall moistness of the crayons allows a nice amount of color to be deposited on the paper.  These crayons work best on light colored paper but can be seen on darker sheets.  The only downfall of these crayons is that sometimes the surrounding paper tends to come off the crayons.  This paper allows a barrier between the crayon and the hand.  The name of the color is written on this cover.  A crayon can be broken relatively easy with enough force.  I cannot say any particular brand is stronger than another.

Each eight pack of crayons will cost $1-2 depending on where you purchase them.  They can be found in any store that has any type of stationary section.  The primary reason you would want to purchase a small pack is to be able to transport them easy. 

This set does not include a sharpener.
