Since 1903…

The first box of Crayola crayons was sold 106 years ago for five cents and included the same colors available in the eight-count box today: red, blue, yellow, green, violet, orange, black and brown. Nearly 3 billion crayons are made each year (an average of 12 million daily)… find all 120 Crayon colour names (along with hex codes and RGB values), Crayon-inspired colour palettes, and more trivia about the ubiquitous little “oily-chalk” wax sticks here.
