Back 2 School With Crayola

When it comes to the period of getting all the back to school items our children need, many of us find stationary second on our list after uniform being first. When I was younger, I always associated Crayola as being the best children's stationary brand, you know every product has the original like with ketchup, it can only be Heinz, with me, children's stationary's best creators have to be Crayola.

Crayola very kindly sent Spud 3 of their fabulous items to review, and to feature in my back to school guide. The lovely team sent Spud the following items featured below!

12 Twistable Crayons - RRP £2.99

Spud eagerly tested out the Twistable Crayons first, crayons unfortunately break in their paper wrappings, so Spud was delighted to find crayons formed like a pen in a durable plastic coat! With pencils, when the lead comes to an end, we simply sharpen to get some more lead, with crayons they wear down, but with Crayola's Twistable Crayons, children simply twist the bottom of the pen style crayon to bring more crayon to the top once it has worn down.

The colours of the Twistable Crayons are very bright, and are excellent to colour in with, they are not too small nor too chunky, they are just right for children to colour in with! You receive 12 crayons that come in a handy storage wallet, ready for the crayons to be used over and over again, alternatively they would fit perfect in a child's pencil case!

Suitable for ages 3+ sold at Asda, WHSmith, Tesco, Amazon, Ryman, Staples and many more places.

12 Colouring Pencils - RRP £2.39

The pre sharpened coloured pencils were next to go through Spud's reviewing procedure, first he tried them in his pencil case, made sure they fitted perfectly, then expected each one individually to make sure the lead had not broke, all 12 passed the strong led test and this is thanks to Crayola's pencil's having a high breakage strength, making them far harder to break!

Crayola Colouring Pencils are sold in packs of 12, 24 (RRP £4.29) and 36 (RRP £6.29), all the pencils are bright strong colours and the perfect essential for all children starting or returning back to school. You can't go wrong with Crayola pencils, they will last a lot longer and are truly worth spending that little bit extra.

 Suitable for ages 3+ sold at Asda, WHSmith, Tesco, Amazon, Ryman, Staples and many more places.

12 Bright Supertipes - RRP £3.49

The Bright Supertips were last to be put through their ropes, Spud's first preference when it comes to colouring in is definitely felt tips. Crayola Supertips are designed to give a smooth intense colour lay down providing super smooth coverage without the scratching look or squeaking sound! Each of the 12 Supertips lays down over 600 feet of colour

Kids are the most easiest suspects to get ink on their hands, but parents don't have to worry with Crayola because the Supertips ink washes off skin and clothing should a accident occur! Thanks to Crayola's fantastic technology and design, if the cap is left off a Supertip, the ink can easily be revived!

Crayola Supertips are also sold in packs of 24 with a RRP of £5.99.

Suitable for ages 3+ sold at Asda, WHSmith, Tesco, Amazon, Ryman, Staples and many more places.

Spud found all of the Crayola items we received very easy to use and has packed them into his new suitcase ready for his first day of junior school come September!
