Scattered around our house there are umpteen broken wax crayons and unused pencil crayons. My children love colouring in but until now lacked the ideal tools to do so. Until this weekend I discovered BIC kids Super Soft Crayons, they were R24.99 at our local Checkers Hyper.
Normal thin wax crayons break when children look at them, the jumbo ones don’t have a nice point, and kids can’t resist winding turn-ups so far out that they also break. Normal pencil crayons on the other hand are too finely pointed which makes colouring in take too long for little ones and in many cases the crayons are so hard that they hardly transfer colour to the page. These super soft crayons combine the best aspects of waxies and pencil crayons. Their triangular grip is also perfect for little hands learning to hold a pencil correctly.
My only complaint is that there are only 8 in the box, I would love be able to buy a set with other colours such as purple (Acacia’s favourite colour).
