Creative Giants - Edwin Binney Edwin's little company started out making colorants, which doesn't sound too creative. But from those products, Binney had a vision. He saw a need in the market, specifically among children, and he converted his business to meet that need. He began manufacturing wax crayons, packed in little boxes, for children to use at school in a time when crayons were expensive artists' tools.

A freshly opened box of Crayola crayons. I love that smell. I remember the jumbo ones my mom bought me and I remember my first 64 box that my grandma bought me after I had my tonsils out in Kindergarten!

Crayola Crayons - remember "Prussian blue" and "spring green"? Ahhh...the 64 box. I remember opening it and marveling at all the colors. The eager expectation of using that wonderful sharpener. Oh, and the smell... there was nothing like it. Even now, when I open a new box of crayons the happy memories just flood back and I smile.

i have two of these at home...they were having a crayola special at f.a.o. schwarz for a while...

Prior to Crayola’s introduction in 1903, the only crayons available were made for artists. Invented by cousins Edwin Binney and Harold Smith, Crayolas were the first crayons to be both cheap and sturdy enough for everyday use by children. When introduced, a box of Binney & Smith’s Crayola crayons sold for 5¢ and included eight colors: blue, green, red, orange, yellow, violet, brown, and black.
