Crayola released the first 64ct crayon box in 1958, giving kids the opportunity to expand their imaginations beyond traditional colors, introduce new shades and add colorful fun to playtime! In addition to new colors, the box included a built-in sharpener for added convenience. Over the years, the 64-count crayon box has become a household item and fan-favorite amongst all ages.
Crayola is launching a 64-count, special, limited-edition Happy 64th Birthday Crayons Tin available in Walmart stores and on Walmart.com to celebrate this iconic birthday. Crayola will also have a limited-edition crayon case available throughout August at Family Dollar and commemorative birthday crayon boxes on Crayola.com. Happy 64th Birthday 64 count crayons are not only about the party on the outside but also include 64 crayons inside, waiting to celebrate your most creative ideas! Within the 64 colors, you will find eight special effect confetti crayons because what's a party without confetti!
For even more fun, turn the box around to find a special QR code that will take you to Crayola.com, where you will find:
