Twelve of Crayola's 135 standard crayon colors (showing Vivid Tangerine, Jungle Green, Shocking Pink, Cornflower, Vivid Violet, Silver, Tan, Brick Red, Yellow, Purple Mountains' Majesty, Blue Bell, and Tickle Me Pink)
Crayola's 13 of 15 officially retired crayon colors (showing Lemon Yellow, Violet Blue, Blue Gray, Orange Red, Maize, Raw Umber, Orange Yellow, Green Blue, Blizzard Blue, Magic Mint, Mulberry, Teal Blue, and Thistle)

Crayola crayons have come in many colors since their introduction in 1903 with 8 colors.[1] By 1905, Binney & Smith's Crayola crayon product line had reached 30 colors.[2] 40 new colors were introduced throughout 1949, increasing the number of colors to 48. 16 new colors were introduced in 1958, increasing the number of colors to 64. Two colors (Brilliant Rose and Light Blue) were in the 64 pack and swapped out for Magenta and Turquoise Blue in 1959 due to discontinuation of Brilliant Rose and Light Blue. Eight fluorescent colors were introduced in 1972, increasing the number of colors to 72. In 1990, the total increased to 80 colors with the introduction of 16 colors and the discontinuation of 8 colors. The number of colors was increased to 96 in 1993 and to 120 in 1998. While a total of 15 colors have been retired, the total number of existing colors is 135. In 2000, one new color replaced one "retiring" color. In 2003, four new colors replaced four "retiring" colors. [3] Along with the regular packs of crayons, there have been many specialty sets, including Silver Swirls,[4] Gem Tones,[5] Pearl Brite,[6] Metallic FX,[7] Magic Scent,[8] Silly Scents,[9] and more.

Several colors have been renamed through the years. In 1958, Prussian Blue was renamed to Midnight Blue, supposedly because educators complained that children could not relate to Prussian history. Flesh was renamed to Peach in 1962, reflecting the fact that flesh comes in many different colors. Indian Red was renamed to Chestnut in 1999, due to concern that children might believe that the color represented the skin color of American Indians,[3] although in fact Indian red is a reddish-brown pigment from India, used in oil paints.[3] In 2000, three colors were renamed. Brink Pink was renamed to Pink Sherbert. Cranberry was renamed to Blush. Torch Red was renamed to Scarlet. The reason for the renaming of those colors is unknown. In the past, some crayons have been temporarily renamed, such as the 2004 State-Your-Color Contest[10] crayons and the eight Kids' Choice Colors in the 2008 50th anniversary 64-count box.[11]

Standard colors[edit]

This is a list of the 135 standard Crayola crayon colors as of 2015. According to its chronology page, each "core color" was introduced in a specific year.

Multicultural[edit]

In 1992, Crayola released a set of eight multicultural crayons which "come in an assortment of skin hues that give a child a realistic palette for coloring their world."[14] The eight colors used came from their standard list of colors (none of these colors are exclusive to this set), and the set was, for the most part, well received, though there has also been some criticism.[15][16]

16 of 30 Crayola Magic Scent crayons (showing Leather Jacket, Dirt, Fresh Air, Eucalyptus, Baby Powder, Shampoo, Rose, Daffodil, Smoke, Lumber, Cedar Chest, Lilac, New Car, Tulip, Soap, Pine)

In 1994, Crayola produced a 16-pack of crayons that released fragrances when used. In 1995, Crayola changed some of the scents because of complaints received by parents that some of the crayons smelled good enough to eat, like the Cherry, Chocolate, & Blueberry scented crayons.[17] Crayons with food scents were retired in favor of non-food scents.
