Crayola-a name we all know
Posted by Skye on 10/03/2010
Color wonder mess free kit.
Color wonder mess free kit.
COLORADO -- I just wanted to give a compliment to Crayola, for their Mess free color wonder product. Our twins are going to be 3 in January, and recently have discovered the wonders of coloring. They love it!

I bought them each a Crayola Mess free color wonder set. Nemo for our daughter, and Cars, for our son. The markers will ONLY color on the special paper that comes with each set. The markers will not work on the floor, carpeting, walls, furniture, mirrors, or each other. Anywhere you do not want kids coloring on, except the special coloring paper. They love it, and have so much fun with their very own little kits.

This is a nice little item for a child in your life, especially with the holidays coming up.

How much is the product?

Crayola color Wonder is a great idea for every little artist. My nephew used to color on the walls and everything else in the house when he was younger, got him a set of Color Wonder books, and also painted a wall in his room with chalkboard paint, he loved the fact that he could draw on his wall and not get into trouble.

I bought the Crayola kits, after they got a hold of a sharpie and colored the inside of my pantry closet. They really do have talent!

MRM, I bought them at Target, I think they were around $11.99 each.

Thanks for this info Skye. I will get a set for my grandson. He's only 8 months old, but it will be a little grandma surprise for him one day when he's a little older. I remember my daughter decorating everything she could, including our car seats one time!

It's great to see a product that I loved as a child still around and still pleasing children. A very enjoyable review, Skye!

What a great idea! I come from a long line of colorers, and this would have come in handy.

Even though the unexpected artwork in unexpected places is annoying at the time, you'll look back one day and wish they could do it again.

Nice review, Skye! I love Crayola products..they have something for every age and continue to be reasonably priced as well.

When your twins get a little older, another fun activity is the kits to design your own pillow case, that come with fabric crayons. Rather than use it as a pillow case, I took my daughter's artwork and had it made into a quilt for a special gift for her grandparents.

My nephew turns 3 tomorrow. This sounds like a good gift idea for him. He loves to color on paper, but also on the walls, carpet, toys, fridge, etc. This might keep me from getting out the Magic Eraser every 5 minutes! Good review as always Skye

There ya go yaya. He will love it. You can take it in the car to keep him entertained in his seat, and he can't write on the car, the windows, himself. I tell my kids the paper and the markers are magic. They like that.

Happy 3rd Birthday to you nephew!

Oh but he will try!

Thanks Skye! I love 3 year olds. It's such a fun age
Posted by Venice09 on 2010-10-04:
Do they still make coloring books with the paint embedded in the paper and all you need is a brush and water? We used to love those.
Posted by Anonymous on 2010-10-04:
They do, Venice.
Posted by Venice09 on 2010-10-04:
I want one. Is there any rule that says you need small kids to color or paint? As long as nobody's watching, why can't I do it alone? ;)
Posted by Anonymous on 2010-10-04:
There are no rules when expressing oneself through art, go ahead and release your inner artist.
Posted by Venice09 on 2010-10-04:
Thanks, ript!.. I think I will.

Venice, I color. It's relaxing :) I gave my daughter the super big box (120 crayons) and some coloring books for her dorm room and they actually have used them LOL

I've been sitting here doing a still life, and the perspective is way off, but as I draw amid the chaos enveloping me, I am gaining the perfect perspective.
Posted by Venice09 on 2010-10-04:
It is definitely relaxing. That was what I loved the most. It helps the kids concentrate, too, as they try to stay within the lines. I realize now how much I miss coloring books. There's nothing like opening a new box of 120 Crayolas!

Silly Putty Has Helped Me With My Wrist & With My Tourette Syndrome!!!
Posted by The2ndflood on 07/26/2008

2 years ago I hurt my wrist while going through my boxing workout. I have been on all kinds of medications and I even had surgery late last year in the hopes of healing the tendon damage. None of that so far had really done much. I would heal a bit, then re-injure it again; sometimes over the most simple of exercises. I have used all types of devices and machines; again with no real luck.

So I was in Toy's R Us one day a few months back getting a gift for my nephew and I noticed your Silly Putty. So I bought 25 little eggs of it and have been using it every single day since then. This stuff is so great! It cost way less then physical rehab, medications, and other treatments and it seems to be building up my strength and dexterity again. When I get used to the resistance, I just buy a few more packages and that adds more resistance to the giant blob that I have of the Putty.

So while I know I'm never going to fully heal, your Silly Putty has been helping me out a lot. I have also found that it helps with my Tourette Syndrome. My hands twitch and I end up breaking remotes because I end up tearing buttons off of them. With the Putty though, I have something in my hands that my mind can play with.

So I just really wanted to thank your company for still offering Silly Putty! Because the knock-off's are junk and they smell bad and have toxic warnings on them. But your Putty doesn't have any of those warnings; so I feel safe playing with it for hours on end. I even chewed a few pieces like gum and my dog ate a piece of accident.

So if anyone else out there is in need of something to help build up your fingers, wrist and forearms. Or really any of the upper body. I have discovered all types of exercise I can do with this stuff. Then know that Silly Putty helped me. And if you have Tourette Syndrome and the comments of the remote make any sense to you, then the Putty will help you with that as well.

It's cheap, it's non toxic and it's made in the USA. So I am not loyal for life!

UPDATE: While my dog has only eaten a small amount, she really seems to love Silly Putty. I have chewed it and it has little to no taste, but to her, there must be something tasty in it!
So just watch out. Your dog might not be like my dog where she will eat pretty much anything, but just make sure. Because if a dog eats 20+ eggs of Silly Putty; I honestly don't know what will happen. That is A LOT of Putty!!! Dogs must smell something nice in the Putty that I can't. Because Silly Putty taste like flavorless gum to me.

You had me going, until the part where you claim to chew silly putty like gum. Right

"I even chewed a few pieces like gum and my dog ate a piece of accident."

Now, this I'd like to see.

Out of my entire review you didn't agree with me chewing a piece? Go buy a package and chew it. It has very little taste but chews almost like gum. I used to chew Silly Putty as a kid and I never got sick from it. If you knock that part of my review, it is very simple to take care of. Go spend $.99 cents and buy some and chew it. Or is that too that difficult to understand justcuz? I can't believe out of my entire review you find the most useless piece to nag about. I posted this to help others who are going through the same problems I am going through, who might get some help with using Putty. So go chew some then come back and rant about it... 100% pointless...

Product Was Inferior, But Customer Service Is Great!
Posted by Noneill on 02/07/2008
This doesn't sound like a big deal, but it is frustrating to kids. It comes with a big coloring book and 3 color wands. The kids are able to color the pages and the color will not show on anything but the special paper - making it mess-free. But as we learned my 3 year old and 4 year old grandchildren found it a bit of a challenge. They would color a section and have to wait to see the results for a few seconds and then they could continue coloring. I called Crayola because they have their phone number on the box and they ask you to call if you have issues with the product.

They were very understanding and they are mailing me a coupon for $15 to try another product. I thought that is great customer service.

You and your grandchildren didn't think the crayons worked the way you thought they would and contacted the company. I think it's awesome that Crayola did what they could to keep you a happy customer!
Posted by Principissa on 2008-02-07:
My youngest son has the color wonder coloring books and markers. We noticed the same exact issue you are talking about. He would color with the markers and it would take about 15 seconds for it to show up on the paper. The finger paints are the same way as well. I'm glad they came through for you! If your grandkids are older, my 7 year old likes the Crayola Color Surge and Color Explosion.

Excellent customer service, Crayola!
Posted by Principissa on 2008-02-07:
steve my youngest one thinks crayons are best when dug around in his nose for a bit and then eaten. I guess it's extra flavor.
Posted by Anonymous on 2008-02-07:
its too salty that way i think
Posted by GothicSmurf on 2008-02-07:
I'd love to see Crayola come up with a crayon that doesn't melt in the dryer!
Posted by Principissa on 2008-02-07:
I am so with you on that one Gothic. I am still trying to get the Macaroni and Cheese color off of my clothes. The markers are fine if they explode because they are washable. We've done that before too. Be careful with the pencils though, they shred into a bazillion pieces, I've had to pick those out of some pretty delicate areas, wasn't cute at all.

My daughter loves the crayon maker. At first, I thought it was a silly product. But, she absolutely loved picking the colors to make new crayons. It's actually a great thing to do with all those crayon stubs.
Posted by CrystalSword on 2008-02-07:
Crayola crayons were great when I was a kid...my uncle taught me to go behind grandma's coal stove in the living room and melt them on the stove....such pretty colors running down....wonder if she ever found out what we were doing back there????

Steve - you made me laugh today! Thanks.
Posted by Slimjim on 2008-02-07:
Good service protocol. They know that's the inherited downside with the product but instead of just using the "is what it is" position, they threw a coupon out just because you offered feedback.
