Crayola manufactures several different types of colored pencils. The most popular one is the standard sharpenable wood-shafted pencil, which also offers the widest range of available colors. A smaller and slightly different range of colors is available in mechanical pencil format as part of their "Twistable" product line.
Both formats have a certain subset of "Erasable" colors. Although the default colored pencils are not completely indelible, their markings have a slightly waxy texture that tends to smear and thin out rather than truly erasing.
There are also two types of multicolored pencils: "Heads 'n Tails" and "True to Life".
Wooden pencils that can be sharpened.

In commemoration of the 50th anniversary of the 64-box of Crayola crayons in 2010, a 64-box of Crayola colored pencils was issued. It had the same colors as the current 64 box. The year of the introduction of the 12, 24, 36, and 50 packs of colored pencils is unknown.
Metallic Colors 8 Pack
Regular wooden pencils with metallic colors, they have very small flecks of sparkly sparkles in them. Colors approximate.
Multicultural Colors, 8 pack
Regular wooden pencils in colors which represent the colors of people's skin. Colors include: black, red, mahogany, peach, brown, dark brown, light brown and tan. All colors are available in other packages, none unique.
Crayola also manufactures mechanical pencils with colored leads as part of its "Twistables" line, which also includes crayons and markers with a similar screw-based mechanical feed. Crayola does not currently offer refill cores for any of its Twistables products, so the pencils are intended to be discarded when empty. The external packaging of each set shows color swatches labeled by name, but the color names are not imprinted on the individual pencils themselves. They are available in 12, (vibrant set) 18, and 30 packs, and an erasable 12 pack. The 12 pack was released on 1998 while the 18 pack is released in 2008 but the 30 pack release date is unknown.
The 30 pack contains 11 of the colors in the standard 12 pack; Sky Blue is not included. It also contains all of colors of the 18 pack (vibrant set) with the exception of the 3 fluorescent colors. The remaining 7 colors (there are 6 colors that are in both sets) are unique to the 30 pack.
Some of the Twistables pencil color names do not appear among the standard colored pencils as shown above. The colors are Blue-Violet, Green-Yellow, Apricot, Asparagus, Carnation Pink, and Wisteria.
All color values are approximate.
The "Vibrant Set" 18-pack that released in 2008 has relatively little duplication of the basic 12-pack colors; The few exceptions are italicized:
|12 pack standard set||18 pack vibrant set||+12 = 30 pack|
|Sky Blue||[Fluorescent] Yellow||Asparagus|
|Light Brown||Lime Green||Violet|
Yellow, Pink, and Orange are fluorescent in the 18 pack but not in the 30 pack.
Silly Scents Color Pencil
Color values are approximate.
The basic "Silly Scents" 8-pack that released in 1998 has the following colors:
|Lobster Lips||Sasquatch Sneakers||Monkey Breath||Rotten Tooth Fairy|
|Fairy Tales Forest||Oozing Ogre||Zombie Laundry||Ghoulish Graham Cracker|
Ultra Cool and Super Hot
The basic 12-pack of "Ultra Cool and Super Hot Pencils". T-Shirt green, Dodger Blue and Green Blue were released in July 2010 and the remaining colors were released in January 2011.
|T-Shirt green||Dodger Blue||Green Blue||Mucus||Ball Green|
|RYB Position||GOV Position||Raindrop||Steel Green||Steel Pink|
The currently available "eXtreme colors ultra-bright colored pencils" pack has 8 colors: absolute zero, spring frost, winter sky, arctic lime, fiery rose, lemon glacier, heat wave, sizzling sunset.
Crayola's erasable colors are available in 8-packs, 12-packs, or 24-packs of standard sharpenable pencils. There is also a 12-pack of "Erasable Twistables" pencils, which lists the same twelve colors as the standard "Twistables" pencils.
Specialty multicolor pencils
"True to Life" pencils are limited to eight colors (or rather, eight color titles such as "Maui Sunset" and "Amazon Rainforest"), in which each pencil has a single tricolor lead. As the color titles are identical to those of the "True to Life" tricolored crayons, their color range is presumably similar or identical.
Similarly, the 8-pack of double-sided "Heads 'n Tails" pencils, in which the two sides of each pencil have two different tints or shades of the same hue, should resemble the color range of the corresponding crayons.
