Publisher Description:

CRAYON ROCKS - Are simply the best coloring tool for young children! Made in rural Kentucky, USA from soybean wax, they are vibrantly colored and create beautifully textured child artwork similar to oil pastels.

MULTICOLOR CRAYONS – Eight - (8) non-toxic, soy wax crayons in these colors: red, green, blue, egg yolk yellow, black, brown, orange, and purple in a Blue Velvet Bag.

ERGONOMIC SHAPE - Used by occupational therapists and preschool teachers, they were specifically designed to strengthen the tripod grip muscles in young children and improve fine motor coordination.

CRAYON SIZE: DURABILITY & SAFETY - 1 ¼ x 3/4 inch (images may appear larger) long lasting and durable. Although appearing smaller, volume is actually equal to that of major brand stick crayons.

WARNING: Choking hazard. Not for children under 3 years. Use with appropriate supervision.

Category Description for Crayon Rocks:

Without a doubt, the most unique crayons you've ever experienced! Each set includes brightly pigmented, soy wax crayons in the shape of small smooth pebbles. Each one is the same shape, a bit like a rounded triangle with one longer, narrower side. This side is held between the fingers and helps to promote a tripod grip. Used by physical therapists and early childhood educators, not only are the crayons easy to hold, but they are also unique and work very well for coloring. The colors are bright and the texture is quite smooth when you write with them. They would also work very well for crayon rubbings, since they have a broader surface area. We were quite charmed with them when we first got our hands on them! Available in sets of 8 or 16 colors packaged in drawstring bags, or a set of 64 (contains 4 sets of 16 colors) that is packaged in a cardboard "Eco-box."

These crayons are great for strengthening those little fingers and working on prewriting skills. Kids love these and have to use their pincer grasp to hold these little fun crayons!

Our first set is about 6 years old, in need of replacement. Hopefully three little kids will happily share one bag.

To improve fine motor skills
Beth-Anne F on Nov 26, 2018
My five year old has low muscle strength in her shoulder area which is preventing her from progressing from a 2-3 year old grip to closer to a tripod grip. An OT recommended these to a friend who's child had the same problem, so I'm hoping they'll help us also.

Are these crayons as big as egg crayons? For children ages 1 and older?
A shopper on Nov 27, 2020
BEST ANSWER: They are only about 1 1/4 inch long. I'd say for children age 3 and older since you need a certain level of fine motor skills to grasp and use.

big disappointment
These looked like they would be a great gift for my granddaughter for her 2nd birthday but they are MUCH TOO SMALL. I assumed that since they were for young children that they would be large enough to easily grasp however they are only about an inch long. Good for adults but NOT for young children. And since they are so tiny they won't last long if used. As an early childhood college professor I teach about how toddlers grasp items with their whole hand. I know how to use them to make a scribble cookie that is large enough for a little child to easily manipulate so I may do that.

I bought these for my two year old to give him something in his "school box" He loves them! There is an unexpected bonus They don't break when you step on them This is one of perhaps six items in my home that is virtually indestructible The colors a also quite vibrant especially on beige colored walls
