History

 

Harett-Gilmar was founded at some point in the early or mid-1940s.  The earliest reference to a product they sold was from 1949.  They made a variety of toys including some art sets with crayons.  Eventually they were bought out by Superior Toy Co. in 1988.  In their earlier products that had crayons they had their own Wype-Off brand but later as they got into the cheaper toys you might find at a grocery store, they used another company’s crayon box.
