Color Your World: 120 Days of Crayola; Denim

Denim Along the Walkway

Denim Along the Walkway

The first collection of Crayola Crayons, a safe affordable wax crayon, was produced in 1903. The first box, Box 30, contained 30 unwrapped colors. Soon that was converted to Box 51, a box of 28 wrapped crayons. Box 54 contained the 8 classic colors and sold for a nickel.

In 1904, Binney and Smith won the Gold Medal during the St Louis World’s Fair. Their entry was actually for their dustless chalk, but it was the foundation of their “Gold Medal” packaging, in which they featured the gold medal on the front of their crayon boxes for the next 50 years.

Denim was added to the collection in 1993.

This post is just one of many in the Color Your World: 120 Days of Crayola Challenge! Enjoy!
