History

 

There is no history to be found for Dorchester.  They are obviously some type of distribution or general products company operating in Canada.  Their only crayon product is a licensed Mr. Dressup box.  Mr. Dressup was Canadian children's television show that ran from 1967 to 1996.  Ernie Coombs, who played Mr. Dressup, was very similar to Mr. Rogers from the USA.  He retired from the show in 1996 and passed away in 2001.  The only box from them does have a copyright date of 1991 on it.  THe crayons say right on the box they were made in China but distributed in Canada.
