It seems like crayons have always been the same.
Thin sticks of colored wax, covered with paper that quickly lose their point and more than likely break when put under too much pressure.
Well, here’s a new twist on an old idea – rock crayons. Who knew?
This decidedly quirky marketing ploy is the latest idea for revitalizing crayon sales, and it’s an idea that’s fun and sensible at the same time.
