Crayola history began in 1885 with a partnership between two cousins, Edwin Binney and C. Harold Smith, in New York City. Although their initial products consisted of industrial colorants, Mr. Binney and his wife initiated the development of something innovative, after noticing a need for safe, high quality, affordable wax crayons. In 1903, after developing the novel formulation, and naming it after the French words for chalk and oily, the first box of eight colorful drawing crayons was produced. This American company is currently located in Lehigh Valley, Pennsylvania, and has expanded their lineup over the years to include a full selection of Crayola crayons, markers, and colored pencils, as well as innovative art tools, crafting activities, creative toys, and candy, all of which are marketed as non-toxic and safe for use by children!

FUN Fact- You might be wondering, what is the most popular Crayola crayon color? Well, in 1993, according to a poll conducted by the company, the most popular color was blue! This result was again confirmed in another survey done in 2000, and not only was plain blue a hot item, but six other shades of azure made the top 10, including cerulean, midnight blue, aquamarine, periwinkle, denim, and blizzard blue! This indigo craze even made its way into a world record. In 2003, Crayola created the world’s largest crayon, measuring 15 feet long, 16 inches in diameter, and weighing 1,500 pounds! It was made using leftover remnants of crayons sent in by children, and yes, it was the color blue! Apparently, when it’s time to set up your next party, you’ll be right on trend with the selections of blue candy at Candy Warehouse!
