If you’ve ever tried to give young toddlers a few crayons to play with, chances are, two things happened: they try to eat them, and/or they break them immediately. This leads to messy faces and lots of picking up.
Both are frustrating!
That’s why I LOVE these cute crayons from Kitty Baby Love.
Created by Portland-based parents Sara Chun and Ben Cavalcanti, Kitty Baby Love crayons are egg-shaped crayons that look like cute little kittens, and they fit perfectly in little hands.
Because of the unique shape, kids can use different parts of the crayons and get different looks: color with the ears for double lines or fine points, or use the sides of the body for broad strokes.
These crayons are made by hand. The couple uses 7-8 re-melted Crayola crayons. The crayons are non-toxic and have no paper wrappers or broken stubs to worry about. I need these crayons in my home!
The Kitty Egg Crayons are made to be long lasting and durable. They are not cheap – a set of 6 different colors will cost you $18.00, but remember, they will last a long time and the little ones can’t really break them. Eating them is a different story…
Kitty Baby Love also offers other products on their site including a coloring and activity book (available in printed form or for download), all natural beeswax candles, and a cute little bowling set to help kids learn to count and improve their motor skills.
So what do you think? Would you give the Kitty Egg Crayons a try?
