Who We Are:
Whether it's providing tools to put a purple octopus on the moon, or enabling teachers to bring arts-infused learning into the classroom, we are passionate about helping parents and educators raise creatively alive children who we believe will grow to be inspired, original adults.

After noticing a need for safe, high quality, affordable wax crayons, in 1903, our company produced the first box of eight crayons and sold them for 5 cents.

Since then, our brand has grown into a portfolio of innovative art tools, crafting activities, and creative toys that give kids the power to express all that inspires them as they explore, discover, play, pretend, and dream.
