Specialty crayons[edit]

Along with the regular packs of crayons, there have been many specialty sets, including Silver Swirls,[5] Gem Tones,[6] Pearl Brite,[7] Metallic FX,[8] Magic Scent,[9] Silly Scents,[10] and more.

Fluorescent crayons[edit]

In 1972, Binney & Smith introduced eight Crayola fluorescent crayons, designed to fluoresce under black light. The following year, they were added to the 72-count box, in place of the duplicate colors. These crayons remained steady until 1990, when all eight were renamed, and eight more were added, for a total of sixteen fluorescent crayons. One of the new colors, Hot Magenta, shared a name with one of the original colors, now Razzle Dazzle Rose. For some reason, two of the original eight fluorescent crayons have the same color as two of the newer crayons. In 1992, the fluorescent colors were added to the new No. 96 box, becoming part of the standard lineup. When four new crayons were added to the No. 96 assortment in 2003, four existing colors were discontinued, including two of the fluorescents. Also beginning in 1993, packs of fluorescent crayons were regularly labeled "neon" or "neons".[2]

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."[13] 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.[14]

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.[15] Crayons with food scents were retired in favor of non-food scents.

Footnotes[edit]

  1. ^ Due to several factors, the values given should only be considered approximations. The apparent color of any crayon depends on the thickness with which the wax is laid down, the color and brightness of the surface being colored, and other considerations, such as the age and quality of individual crayons. In addition, crayons are produced using pigments, which are normally described using subtractive colors, with the primary colors of red, yellow, and blue; but electronic displays produce colors using the additive method, combining the primary colors of red, green, and blue.
  2. ^ No swatch available; color estimated from picture of crayon.
  3. ^ No swatch available; color estimated from picture of crayon.
  4. ^ Swatch matches the hue of "Laser Lemon" and "Unmellow Yellow."
  5. ^ Crayola has digital swatches labeled "Aqua" and "Aqua Marine," but Aqua is much brighter and Aqua Marine much darker than Aquamarine, which should be a lighter version of Turquoise Blue.
  6. ^ The digital swatch provided by Crayola gives the values 0, 51, 102, considerably darker than the actual crayon.
  7. ^ The digital swatch provided by Crayola is 250, 157, 90. Although the correct hue, this color is much more intense than a tan crayon.
  8. ^ Crayola's digital swatch has the same value as "Laser Lemon".
  9. ^ Crayola's digital swatch mistakenly gives the value for green as 213. An archived swatch from The Crayola Store in 2013 gives 72, which should be normalized to about 52, as its swatches tend to increase values by about that amount.
  10. ^ Crayola's digital swatch has the same values as those of Purple Pizzazz.
  11. ^ Crayola's digital swatch has the same values as those of Hot Magenta (1990–present).
