Crayola Product Line by Year

 

 

Previous Year                                                                                                                     Next Year

 

                                                                                    1935

 

1935 Significant changes this year.  First, nearly all their products are redesigned to use a more art deco look.

There were also a number of lines that dropped off this year.  Also, as the Munsell products fade out and they

incorporate their colors elsewhere, they introduce a number of longer term products as well as a couple of

transition boxes; some of which use the same box (12M, 241M) and others that are new boxes.  For some

reason they chose to produce two colors of a couple of their boxes too.  They seem to differentiate the unwrapped

version from the wrapped.
