You know how I am trying to move away from packaged goods and recommend homemade food for everyone. The reason is the over usage of chemicals in everything around us. But this is not just limited to food, but most things that we use. I become even more sceptical, when it comes children’s products. So when I came across this set of organic crayons for kids by Azafran, I was quite excited to try them.
My daughter loves drawing and colouring and we have a huge collection of crayons as well as other kind of colours. She is also at a stage where she quickly moves from one activity to the other and sometimes puts her fingers in her mouth after colouring without washing them, so the idea of organic and edible crayons was quite appealing to me. So here is my experience of Azafran organic crayons.
First impression/ How it appears and feels?
The pack looks like any other pack of pastel colors, but the surprise awaits you once you open the cover. The crayons are not typical long cylinder shaped but cuboid blocks. My daughter was quite excited to the different shape. The best part was that we could take them on our recent airplane trip and my daughter could draw easily on the tray table without them rolling off which was a big problem with other crayons.
On touching, it appears quite waxy which is expected since it made up of palm and soy wax. The pack contains 8 shades instead of the usual 12 crayons – Yellow, Orange/Pink, Red, Purple, Blue, Green, Brown and Black
