We love these crayons. They are made from soy and are just the right size for little hands. They go on so smoothly and blend colors beautifully. We got ours from here several years ago, but now I have been seeing them in a variety of catalogs. Even our dog, Gritty likes them- she ate one of the red ones. We are almost ready for a few more sets so when we have friends over we can share mush easier. Highly recommended.!
