The crayons who quit come to life with this one-of-a-kind set of twelve crayons and letter-writing stationery inspired by the #1 New York Times bestseller The Day the Crayons Quit!
This box of crayons comes with all twelve characters from the beloved children's book The Day the Crayons Quit, including stubby Blue Crayon, who needed a break from coloring oceans and lakes, and overworked Red Crayon, who had to work on Christmas and Valentine's Day. In addition, a set of twelve letter-writing sheets and corresponding envelopes are nestled into the box, encouraging children to write letters to their friends, family, teachers, neighbors, and heroes.
The papers and envelopes are printed with colors and patterns that bring the magic of the crayons' story to life. Each of the crayons wears a wrapper printed with the characters' memorable faces (with the exception of Peach, who is naked!): You'll see Purple's exhausted expression, Yellow's jealous grimace, Green's pleased grin, and more. The crayons implore you to bring them home. Will you?
