About Crayola: From its earliest beginnings, Crayola has been a color company. We came into being when cousins Edwin Binney and C. Harold Smith took over Edwin’s father’s pigment business in 1885. More than 120 years later, color – along with creativity, learning and most of all, fun – is the hallmark of our company. At Crayola, we give colorful wings to the invisible things that grow in the hearts and minds of children. We believe in unleashing, nurturing and celebrating the colorful originality in every child.
I know all of my readers probably already know this, but if not, Aubreigh is a little artist. She is a lefty, so naturally she is more creative and loves to draw and color. She even asked for an easel for Christmas, instead of barbies and such. For Halloween, she went to school as an artist. It is safe to say that art is more of a passion of hers, rather than just something to do. Crayola is like a staple product in our house. Every Thursday I go grocery shopping, and sure enough there is always a product from Crayola on there that Aubreigh needs for her latest masterpiece. When I had the opportunity to work with Crayola I was beyond excited because I knew that Aubreigh would be beyond excited too. Check out the products we received and what we thought:
Shadow FX Color Projector $24.99 BUY NOW
About: 2014 The National Parenting Center’s Seal of Approval Award Winner Create and project your art anywhere with the Shadow FX Color Projector. Using Crayola’s Shadow FX Color Projector, kids can redefine the term shadow play to involve fun colors, shadow cut outs, toys and even themselves!
Our thoughts: I have to say, this little toy really surprised me. I really did not see how the kids would really enjoy this, but it really surprised me and captivated them. So, kids can draw and design their own artwork using Crayola gel FX markers then they use the light base, which features three colors, to project shadows in color and create cool and large animations. You can also use shapes or make your own to create a custom light show. This little thing is very cool and I enjoyed playing it just as much as the girls did. It does require three AA batteries, which is not included.
See Thru Light Designer $19.99 BUY NOW
About: Create and animate your world with the See Thru Light Designer! Use the reusable transparent panels to create cool, light-up art that you can bring to life with 7 different light effect combinations. Then, place your favorite toys, pictures or people behind the panels to mix the world around you with your animated creations!
Our thoughts: This was another one of our favorite products. This designer comes with 4 markers that you can use on the removable panels. What you do is draw out a kinda like a before and after scene on the two removable panels. When you are done you place them in the holder and turn on the light and watch your picture come to life. The girls absolutely flipped over this and I have loved seeing Aubreighs artwork come to life. It requires 3 AA batteries, which is not included.
Washable Kid’s Neon Paint 10 count $7.49 BUY NOW
Our Thoughts: What kid does not love to paint? Crayola has done a wonderful job again. These paint colors are very vibrant and are not watery like most paint is. It does the job and gives kids the chance to explore their imagination. Aubreigh said these paints get 2 thumbs up.
Pip Squeaks Markers $3.49 BUY NOW
About: Endearing Pip-Squeaks Markers are small in size, but BIG in color! The easy-to-hold short barrels are scaled to match little hands and the ink is our special washable formula!
Our thoughts: These make the perfect markers for Kaylee’s small hands. Crayola is one of the only brand of markers that are small enough for Kaylee. She loves to color beside her sister and with Pip Squeaks I do not have to worry about her hand cramping from them being to small. They are also very vibrant, even though they are in a small container.

About: Give the gift of Silly Putty-the crazy, classic compound that bounces, molds, stretches, snaps and more! The Silly Putty Holiday Fun Pack includes 2 eggs filled with Silly Putty in 2 festive holiday colors. Nothing else is Silly Putty
Our thoughts: Talk about the perfect stocking stuffers! I love how this pack comes with 2 instead of just one. The girls love playing with Silly Putty, and once again, Crayola has lived up to their name. This silly putty can withstand anything and be ready to go the next morning.
