Since a child's first writing tool is usually a crayon, that crayon should be one that encourages him or her to use thumb, first and second fingers in a tripod grip. This is what makes Crayon Rocks a wonderful tool for fine motor development.
Because of their shape, they do not allow kids to easily grip them in a closed fist which deters fine motor development and are also more resistant to breaking.
Unlike most crayons which are made of petrolium paraffin wax, Crayon Rocks are made from U.S. grown and processed Kosher soy wax. We combine this wax with natural mineral pigments to create beautiful colors and a natural ground rock that gives the crayons their body. This creates a crayon that goes on smooth and blends easily.
Crayon Rocks make it easy to apply great swaths of colour to the paper along with being able to create line work and smaller details. The colours blend together easily and allow kids to develop an endless array of new shades and combinations. They give rich color that goes on smoothly and easily helps little fingers to grow strong as they spill their creative ideas onto paper. We recommend brushing your finished creation with the palm of your hand for a finished oil pastel quality.

Are Crayon Rocks safe for kids?
Crayon Rocks is committed to offering a safe and eco-friendly product. Crayon Rocks are non–toxic. They are, however, small enough (1.5 inch x .75 inch x .75 inch) to be a potential choking hazard to very young children. Made from a renewable resource, soy oil, they are an environmentally better choice over traditional petroleum wax crayons.
Are they CPSIA compliant and certified non-toxic?
Yes, we are certified non-toxic and conform to ASTM 4236. We are CPSIA compliant. You can eat our crayons if you want, but PLEASE don't inhale them. They ARE a choking hazard. Not for children under 3 years of age or those who will put them in their mouth. Use with an appropriate level of supervision.
Do your crayons contain phthalates or lead?
Phthalates are substances added to plastics to make them more flexible. Crayon Rocks have NO phthalates in them. To the best of our knowledge and research, none of the current packaging or processes for manufacturing have any phthalates associated with them. And all tests show us to be significantly below the recommended cut-off level for lead and all heavy metals.
