Crayola Product Line

 

Tiny Tots Crayons


Tiny Tots came out in 1930 and over the five years they sold them, there were just two versions that were only distinguishable by box color.  The crayons were produced to have a product to sell to the youngest of children.  At that time, it was thought that the smaller the child, the smaller the crayon that was needed.  Of course, sixty years later we learned that it is actually the opposite.  Small infants need a larger easy to hold crayon as their first coloring experience.  None of these crayons had wrappers on them.  They were also made in the penny box size.  Penny boxes were small boxes of crayons that sold for a penny.  This was a common practice in the 1910s through 1930s and these are the only penny box crayons that Crayola did.
