Human skin color ranges from the lightest hues to the darkest brown. The wide variety of skin tones inspired Crayola to launch its Multicultural Crayons. Featuring 8 different colors that represent skin tones from around the globe, kids can now use the perfect crayon to color themselves on their drawings. People around the world loved the idea of using a crayon that accurately mirrors the color of their skin. So, the company has launched the ‘Colors of the World’ edition that includes more skin tones.
The new Colors of the World edition contains, not just 8, but 24 crayons that represent 24 global skin tones. It is available in 24-count box and 32-count box. In addition to the 24 specially formulated crayons, the 32-count variant also includes 8 classic crayons for coloring eyes and hair. Each box has color references on the side panels to help kids identify the exact shade they need. The brand used realistic color names inclusive of all races and ethnicities from around the world. It includes shades of almond, golden and rose all ranging from extra light to extra deep color tones.
