When I was a kid we used to use our crayons until there was just a little stub left, but these days it seems that they are rarely used beyond the tip. (Wow…saying that sentence makes me feel really old. Hey, get off my lawn!!!) Now it doesn’t matter if the kids want new crayons after minimal use, because the Crayola Crayon Maker allows you to recycle used or broken crayons into new custom crayons instead of throwing them away.
Sure, recycling is good for the environment, but with this contraption you’ll be breaking your crayons on purpose just for the fun of creating new ones. Mix various colors together and create cool swirly crayons. You even get to watch through the window as the old crayons are melted down, and then lift the lever to pour it into the molds.
Crayola Crayon Maker can melt your favorite crayons down and re-form them into one-of-a-kind designer crayons. Simply place crayon bits into the melting tray, pour the melted wax into molds and let them harden into brand-new crayon combinations. The locking see-through dome lets you watch the process in complete safety — from melting through molding. The melting tray is coated for easy clean-up. The dual-ended crayon holder eliminates the need for crayon wrappers. The Crayola Crayon Maker takes one clear 60-watt candelabra bulb.
Crayola Crayon Maker with Story Studio comes with one crayon mold, eight Crayola crayons, two crayon holders, and instructions.
