Crayon Rocks are just the right dimensions for a child's thumb, first and second finger, thereby improving their grip.
Safety is our priority
We are committed to offering a safe and eco-friendly product. Crayon Rocks are non-toxic. They are, however, small enough (1.5 inch x .75 inch x .75 inch) to be a potential choking hazard to very young children. Made from a renewable resource, soy oil, they are an environmentally better choice over traditional petroleum wax crayons. Draw, Write, Smile!
Do you comply with CPSIA and are certified non-toxic?
Yes, we are certified non-toxic and conform to ASTM 4236. We are CPSIA compliant. You can eat our crayons, if you want, but PLEASE don't inhale them. They ARE a choking hazard. Not for children under 3 years of age or those who will put them in their mouth. Use with an appropriate level of supervision.
What ingredients are in your crayons?
We use U.S.A. grown and processed Kosher soy wax and several other organic waxes such as carnauba. Our colorants are derived from minerals. Our filler, which gives the crayon its body, is a natural ground up rock.
Where are these crayons made?
Our crayons are made on a hilltop in Hestand, Kentucky, U.S.A. using American labor. See "About Us" for some pictures.
How are the crayons made?
They are made on a machine built exclusively for us by Monkey Wrench Design, San Francisco, CA
Do your crayons have phthalates or lead in them?
Phthalates are substances added to plastics to make them more flexible. Our crayons have NO phthalates in them. To the best of our knowledge and research, none of our current packaging or processes for manufacturing have any phthalates associated with them. All tests show us to be significantly below the recommended cutoff level for lead and all heavy metals.
