Look at this bounty of color! To celebrate Milton Bradley’s collaboration with Crayola I also added the photo painted in the IPhone Waterlogue App!

Magenta, the rosy pink color, was added to the Crayola line, in 1903, as one of their first colors.

In 1907 Binney & Smith partnered with Milton Bradley to produce the Crayola # 77 assortment with the Milton Bradley label printed on the box. Who is Milton Bradley you ask? Milton Bradley was interested in art education, which led him to produce a new color wheel and publish four books about teaching color. He also introduced the first standardized watercolor sets. He founded a company in 1860 for the production of American board games, which eventually included the games; The Game of Life, Candy Land, Operation, and Battleship.  Who hasn’t played at least one of those games? I found his life so interesting look for a future post about him!

    Cady Luck has done her research. Who knew that Milton Bradley was interested in art education? And take a look at this blogger’s gorgeous magenta color (and more!).
