So much pride
A Crayola color has put a smile on everyone's face at one time. If it's your first artwork or a piece of artwork your child or grandchild has presented you with, there's so much pride. The joy of a handmade creation full of wonderful Crayola colors.

I had a box of the 64 Crayola Crayons with the sharpener, when I was five or six years old given to me as a gift. I loved them. It was my most prized possession. I color grouped them - oranges and yellows - blues and greens - reds and pinks - then the neutral colours - it was my own rainbow - each time I opened the box it was magical. They were my treasure. Unlimited possibilities with all of those colours! I never let my brothers use them - they were too precious. I never broke a single crayon... I still get spell-bound when I open a box of these... Crayola started my love affair with colour!!!

Distinctive, warm, waxy
Whether it's a simple, flat little box of eight colors, or a big box of 64 (with the sharpener in the back!), nothing smells more like childhood than the distinctive warm, waxy scent of these crayons. Is there anyone who didn't create their first artistic masterpiece or learn how to spell their own name with a Crayola crayon clutched in their fist? Generic or store-brand crayons just weren't as good, somehow. Crayola: my first brand loyalty.
