This beautiful collection of Stockmar block crayons comes in a tin case to keep your crayons safe and neat.
This is what Stockmar has to say about these block crayons:
"They meet the highest educational, aesthetic and artistic demands. Elegant design with an attractive packaging and pleasant fragrance, Stockmar Wax Crayons appeal to the child's senses.
How the colours shine and how versatile they are! Whether drawing, painting, generously applying, layering, scraping, and melting colours, Stockmar Wax Crayons promise years of pure drawing pleasure. Outstanding drawing properties (no crumbling, sticking, smudging etc) non-toxic and a sound concept for art education are what make Stockmar Wax Crayons top of the list.
The Wax Blocks, which are made from the same materials and available in identical colours to the crayons, have outstanding drawing properties and appeal to the senses. Their size and flat shape mean they sit well in the hand and are specially suited for small children. What is more, children can draw colourful areas easily, and arrive at interesting effects. For example by dragging the long edge of the block in a wave-like fashion across the paper. From the very first "pencil", Stockmar's assortment of unbreakable Wax Blocks grows as you grow. And so too, the artistic possibilities.

What we say - we had admired these block crayons for many years before we managed to get some for ourselves. And we were so glad we had!
The style of drawing that these crayons encourages is loose, free and big, but you can add detail using the corner of the crayon. I myself was fascinated with my ability to draw trees, landscapes and seascapes with barely any practice! The smell and feel of these crayons is very special - and the longevity is astounding.
We've now had our tin of 16 colours for well over 10 years - each of our children enjoying them during the stage of their development where their interest was taken with them. Currently our youngest is enjoying making marks on the page - and his favourite activity is stacking the blocks and admiring the lovely colours!
