Unexpected SurpriseJan 06, 2000
When I ordered this, I thought it would be just one big box of crayons. At first I was slightly disappointed when I received a pencil box with two boxes of 48 count crayons and a 24 count box, plus 6 little colored pencils. I thought I could have just bought this in the store and not paid shipping! However, upon further examination--hands on, of course, coloring in a color book with my daughter!--I saw that all the boxes had different colors. There were so many different colors! I was more than pleased and even ordered another box!

Now this is a box of crayons!Oct 21, 1999
I bought this box of crayolas for my five year-old sister-in-law on her birthday. Of all the toys and dolls she'd received, I've been told that this was her favorite gift! Along with this super box of colors, I bought her some art paper, watercolors, brushes -- the whole artist's toolkit, if you will. The expensive dolls and fancy toys are forgotten, but her mother tells me that the crayons are still out on the table every day. A great gift, not expensive, and hey, it's fun for us big kids, too!

Not Just For Kids!Mar 17, 2009
I haven't used crayons in at least 20 years, being an adult and supposedly past all that kid stuff. I don't know what made me do it, but on a whim I bought this box of 120 crayons, as well as a mandala coloring book, and I've been having a blast. Just reading the names of all those colors is fun, and the coloring itself is so relaxing after a long day at work. I put on some music, lay on the floor with all those crayons spread out around me, and I just lose myself in play for an hour. It's great.

No one can beat the original "Crayola"Dec 28, 2000
I'm a 28-year-old medical transcriptionist, but in my spare time I sometimes like to color in coloring books as a form of relaxation. I have tried other brands of crayons, but those brands have been subpar. Crayola has always been the best quality.

So much fun with so little mess!Sep 12, 1999
Most of us grown-ups remember the thrill of getting a new box of crayons- all those beautiful sharp colors standing at attention. They even smelled good. The Giant Chest is even better, because Crayola now has more colors and gimic-crayons, while still carrying the old classics. I've bought bargain-price crayons before, but was very disappointed in the poor color quality. Not so with Crayola- the colors are bold and bright. Unfortuntely, most crayons will eventually break in over-eager hands- luckily, with this set you have duplicates of most colors. Try recycling the shavings by ironing them between sheets of waxed paper to make neat stained-glass effects (with adult supervision and permission, of course).
