During the last 100-plus years, Crayola has grown beyond our founders’ wildest dreams.
By applying technical innovation, unparalleled quality, consumer satisfaction and product value, Crayola has become the preeminent producer of hands-on products for creative personal development and fun.
Our company has inspired artistic creativity in children for more than 100 years – since the first box of Crayola crayons rolled off the assembly line in 1903. The company began when cousins Edwin Binney and C. Harold Smith took over Edwin’s father’s pigment business in 1885. Early products included red oxide pigment used as barn paint and carbon black used in car tires.
At Crayola, we believe being “responsible” means doing what is right. It is being a good citizen in the communities and countries where we operate and our products are found. It means incorporating social and environmental priorities and practices into our Crayola brand, our products and our relationships with customers, vendors, consumers and employees.
First Markers have been especially developed for children of 1+. The nib has been designed to allow your child to achieve bold strokes of colour at every angle and is safely secured to stop small hands trying to remove it. Plus the ink rinses off skin, clothes etc, so no need for soap or scrubbing! For ages 1 year and over.
