There is a hierarchy of crayons in school.
The average child starts out with the standard 8-color box of Crayola crayons. Web Watch is quite fond of this one, as we never really got past the fact that there are different color Reds and Blues in today’s world. To us, it’s either “red” or “blue”, with none of those various shades.
As you got older, you would get the 16 or 24-count box of Crayolas.
Eventually, you’d be lucky enough to get the holy grail: the famed 64-count box of Crayola Crayons with the built-in sharpener in the box.
Eventually, even that was too boring, and Crayola came out with the 128-count box. Yeah, those kids were living the good life. They may not have been able to draw worth a darn, but they had all the tools available if they tried.
So imagine our surprise when we learned that Crayola has a new trick up their sleeve: the CUSTOMIZED BOX OF CRAYOLA CRAYONS.
Yup, for the low-low price of $10.99, you can order your child a customized box of their favorite four colors.
That’s right. $11 for just four crayon colors.
Sure, you could spend much, much less to get 64 different colors, but you know how kids are. They only want to draw the same thing, over and over again — which is why you need to shell out some bucks to get them their favorite colors (and probably save Crayola a little bit of cash by not having to make as many of those oddball colors that nobody ever used anyway).
It can take 10-15 days for delivery. But when it’s all said and done, you’ll have a box of 64 crayons of just 4 different colors.
What more could an artistic child possible want?
