16-pack Washable Triangular Crayons product reviews

Guides little fingers toward a writing grip. As children approach 24 months, they begin to hold crayons with the thumb and two fingers. Washable triangular crayons are the right shape to help guide their fingers into the tripod position for more purposeful and controlled drawing.

Their scribbles now look like the zigzags or tighter, more controlled circles. The tripod grip is important for developing later writing skills. Crayola Beginnings Washable Triangular Crayons are designed to easily wash off walls with just warm water and a sponge.

When we were at the bank recently there was a table set up with colouring books and crayons and my 18 month old was really into sitting there and colouring with the crayons. I hadn't though of buying them yet before but after seeing how much he enjoyed colouring at the bank I decided to go out and buy some.

I decided to get the triangular shaped crayons as they seemed pretty chunky and looked as though they would be easier for a young child to get a grasp on. The little crayola crayons just seem so breakable and as my son still uses a whole hand grip they looked as though they would be really hard to use. With these with the triangle shape it is also good as you can begin to teach them how to hold a crayon properly too with the correct grip.

I am glad I bought these ones over the smaller ones as they are a lot harder to snap than the little ones, which means even with his quite hard press onto the paper they don't snap when he pushes down. And yes he has drawn on the walls but a quick wipe just with a wet cloth and it came off so I was really impressed by that!

These crayons were some of the first that my daughter used (at 18 mths), and she found them really easy to hold, control, and draw with. They are a good size (chunky), easy to hold, and most importantly - do not roll off the table and under the cabinet!!! They are also more difficult to break as they are thicker - which I liked. One of the best features is the washablility - always a plus with little people who go off the paper in their exuberance to colour!

We love that these are in a pack of 16 colours as well - lots of variety. They are bigger so do not fit in small containers quite as well as previous crayons, but I do not see that as much of a negative.

Have bought more since the first lot, and happily give them as presents to wee kiddies.

I can't write a review for a children's product without mentioning that I am a trained Primary School teacher with several years experience teaching New Entrant classes. I am also a mother of two pre-schoolers and currently a home-based educarer. These crayons are fabulous. It is also easy to remove marks from clothing and tables.

These crayons are designed to help children develop the correct pencil grip which we refer to as the pincer grip. Like any product it should be used in conjunction with adult guidance. I have found when my children use these crayons they do tend to hold it better. As pre-schoolers it is about forming good habits from the beginning as it is very hard to break the habit especially in an older child.

Once the paper has been removed they are just as effective as circular crayons for doing texture rubbings. The only negative I have found with the triangular crayons is that they tend to break easily but thankfully being in a packet of sixteen there is usually a suitable substitute colour available.

The shape of these crayons is a fantastic idea, with them molding themselves to little fingers. The crayons themselves are washable, which was a great selling point. They slide onto the paper well, without ripping or tearing the paper, even newsprint.
I was a bit annoyed that they still broke just as easy as normal crayons, I was hoping that the triangular structure made them a bit more hard wearing! I also didn't quite understand the paper wrappers as every kid . know just tears these off... maybe this was why they broke- who knows! The range of colours was good, although it would have been nice to see less bright colours and a couple of softer colours.
I also thought the price was quite high. They didn't seem to be amazing value as you can get ordinary shaped crayons for a couple of dollars. Overall I would purchase these again, but only for a birthday or Christmas present.

I watched with pride as my 8 year old son grabbed these, with wide eyes and a lot of ideas spilling out of his mouth, and ran off to give them what could only be described as 'a test-run like no other.' 14 A3 pages, looking like a rainbow had been hit by a car, later and there was still heaps of crayon left!

Now I have found, over the years, that crayons can be separated into two main classes: the soft ones and the hard ones. Soft ones glide on, smooth and silky... they leave a nice rich colour behind, and run out in a matter of hours. The hard ones are durable, tough and long lasting... and often end up attached to the edges of a shredded page due to the friction tearing. These, quite surprisingly, are in that nice middle road, where they are hard enough to be durable, yet soft enough that they can be used on normal 80gram paper and even 60gram newsprint, and not end up grabbing a piece of the paper and tearing it away.

A good range, I would have to say the colours are a little limited, with the 'red' end of the rainbow being represented well, but the 'blue' end being a little light. A couple of nice mid-tones would have gone well, in my mind... perhaps a cyan and a teal, dump the 'porky pink' and 2 of the 3 oranges, and maybe through in a lighter 'lavender' instead of the second dark purple... just to open up that creative scope a little more.

Overall, great crayons for kids, with the triangular cross section enforcing that egronomic 'tripod' grip that will help them improve their writing, and minimise the chances of early-development RSI/OOS. My son thought they were very cool, and loved the effects he could produce by using one of the flat'ish edges... something he couldn't achieve with traditional round crayons. The only little 'oddity' I discovered was that if left in a cold environment, some of the crayons developed a silvery 'fur' on the exposed areas. I suspect this is simply the wax substrate reacting, in a similar manner that chocolate get that white 'skin' if left too long. (That white stuff is actually pure fat, by the way, leaking out of the chocolate and crystalising.) My little lad thought the 'silver' made them look "...ultra cool and futurific..." so I left him to it. Wink Icon
