Crayola Crayon Maker

Crayola Crayon Maker

Fall 2009 Toys
Ages: 8 & Up
Manufacturer: Crayola, LLC
Price: $29.99
The Crayola Crayon Maker recycles broken crayons by melting and mixing differently colored pieces together to create new swirled crayons with multi-colored effects. The kit includes the crayon maker, crayon mold, eight Crayola crayons, and two holders used to create dual-tipped crayons.

This entertaining yet practical toy teaches children conservation and recycling by turning their broken crayon pieces into new one-of-a-kind crayons. We also liked that kids had to follow instructions learned to be patient as they waited for their creations to cool and be removed from their molds.
