Crayola Melt 'N Mold Factory

Features

Kids Create Custom Crayons

The Melt 'N Mold Factory makes it easy for kids six and up to create their own crayons. Children can choose their own special combination of crayon bits. You can encourage kids to choose high-contrast colors for the most striking results. Their custom combination goes into the melting tray--just turn the dial toward the on/off switch to make the pieces begin to melt and blend. When the wax is ready, kids can safely pour the melted crayons into a mold of their choice.

Two Molds to Choose From

The factory comes with two molds your child can use over and over again. One mold makes new crayons in the traditional shape, while the other creates two ring-shaped crayons at the same time. Each mold snaps easily and securely into the holder and then attaches directly to the factory. For added convenience, the Melt 'N Mold Factory is powered by any AC outlet, so there are no batteries to replace.

Expansion Packs for Fun New Shapes

To create additional fun shapes, Melt 'N Mold Factory works with any of the Crayola expansion packs (sold separately).

    My six year old son loves it. We bought the race car expansion pack for it and he loves to make the race cars. It works well if you follow the directions.

    The clean up is a little hard though. It isn't messy per say, but trying to get the residual crayon wax out of the melting tray is not as easy as just "wiping it clean" as the directions suggest.

    The smaller you make the pieces the better it melts. It suggests 3-4 pieces per crayon, but we were able to get 1 cycle when we got 5 pieces out of 1 crayon. People in the reviews are probably just not making the pieces small enough to melt in time. Also, make sure to completely fill a single layer of the tray. At first we did the 3 crayons worth of wax method that the directions suggested, but this wasn't enough wax to completely fill the molds. Since there wasn't enough wax the flow was thin and a lot of the wax dried during travel before it even made it into the shape part of the mold. After the first attempt we made sure to use smaller pieces and completely cover the tray (in a single layer) and it has worked great ever since.

    The real downside is how long it takes. It takes about 15 minutes for the wax to melt enough to do the pouring, and then about another 20 minutes to set up. My son just plays a game or eats a snack while watching the timer light. He doesn't seem to mind that it takes awhile.

    The best thing is that the plastic lid stays locked until the unit is done and cool enough to touch safely, so I don't have to worry about him getting burned. Also, the pouring all happens with a lever and stays under the plastic lid, so there is no contact with the hot wax or spilling of the wax.

    This product was purchased as an early Christmas present for my 7 1/2 year old granddaughter. She was so excited to open and use it today, but was very disappointed after trying it out for the first time. For starters, she had to wait through 3-4 cycles with the melting tray before the crayons were melted enough to pour into the molds. This process took at least an hour and a half to complete. After pouring melted crayons into the rather skimpy molds, there was a lot of wax/crayon residue to clean on the melting tray and molds before she could use them again. We found out that if you don't completely clean the metal melting tray after the first batch the next batch will not melt at all. The wax residue is also very hard to clean off of the tray and molds. She was also unhappy because there's a picture of a car on the box, but there was no car mold inside. Sadly, I found out that the car mold my granddaughter wanted comes with an expansion pack that you have to buy separately. Because there is a rather large picture of the car on the original box, we felt we had been tricked into thinking it was inside. Anyway, I gave this product 2 stars instead of 1 star because I feel the idea of creating swirly, multi-colored crayons is great, but the quality is poor. If you're like me and want to get your money's worth, I would not recommend purchasing this toy.

      The product is neat but I wish the tray could fit more crayons and the molds were larger. My son has a ton of broken crayons so it could take a longggg time to actually melt them done. Kids lose interest so quick so he's over his new toy now.

                  We had so many broken crayons and wore down pieces. So instead of throwing them away I got this. It works awesome. My kids get to pick their own colors to make new crayons.
