All great artists started with their first scribble. Start your child early on her artistic career with the Alex Jr. Tots First Crayons, designed for toddlers!
These chunky triangular crayons for kids are designed to be gripped from any angle – there’s no wrong way to hold them. Each Alex Jr. Tots First Crayon has a baby face embossed on one side and a textured inset on the other, so kids can experiment with the easiest way to hold the crayon. There’s no paper around the Tots First Crayons blocking the color, so every side can scribble. Scribbling helps your child develop fine motor control, which will help her grip writing implements as she gets older. And finally, the chunky shape of Tots First Crayons means that if they’re dropped or thrown, they won’t shatter, preventing tears!
The Alex Jr. Tots First Crayon Set includes 6 lovely rainbow colored crayons, in red, orange, yellow, green, blue, and purple. For ages 18 months and up.
Hard to use
I bought these for my nephew. You have to press very hard to draw with them and he's only 18 months so it doesn't really work for him. Also the shape - because of the different shape, he seem to think they are food instead and often puts them in his mouth. He seems to do better with traditional crayons - he can "draw" better with them and he doesn't suck on them.
