From its earliest beginnings, Crayola has been a color company. Crayola came into being when cousins Edwin Binney and C. Harold Smith took over Edwin's father's pigment business in 1885. More than 120 years later, color - along with creativity, learning and most of all, fun - is the hallmark of Crayola's company. Crayola has called Easton, Pennsylvania its home since the early 1900s. Today, the Crayola's world headquarters and major manufacturing facilities are located there. And downtown Easton is the home of The Crayola FACTORY, a one-of-a-kind celebration of creative fun for everyone. In 1984, Crayola became a wholly-owned subsidiary of Hallmark Cards and has since Crayola has played the lead role in Hallmark's personal development strategies.

I recommend this product for kids who love art and also have a science project mentality.

We have used the crayon maker at our house for almost a year. My children play with it regularly, and it's still a big hit today. I have a son, 7, and a daughter, 9. They love picking out crayons to mix together to invent new swirly colors, and they really enjoy watching the progress of the melted crayons waterfalling into the molds. They have built up quite a collection of crazy colored crayons over time.

In my experience, the crayons take almost 45 min to melt, and almost that long again to harden and be absolutely ready. That's a long time to sit around and wait, so at least at our house, we use this crayon maker as a "background" activity that we weave into other playtime activities/chores/homework and come back to a couple or three times over the course of a few hours, to harvest the new crayons, prepare a new batch, and color for a while. My children usually complete 2 batches on average with this product each time we get it out to play with it. That is a total of 8 crayons each time. They seem to be just as interested in picking out which crayons to mix, loading them, and watching the melting progress as they are in using the newly created crayons. They crayon maker only makes 4 crayons per batch. If you have a child who would primarily be interested in the newly created crayons, they might be let down by the 4 mini-crayon yield.

It's a rather small sized product, so it fits very well in between my two kids seated at our breakfast bar with papers out ready to color with the new crayons.

I have used Crayola as well as Rose Art brand crayons with equal success. We have experienced no problems with the quality of crayons it makes, but we definitely wait about 40-45 minutes melt and then 40 min harden for each batch, much longer then recommended. The created crayons are mini-sized crayons, but my kids don't seem to mind. There is even an overflow part of the tray assembly, and my daughter pops those out as well, and it makes a teeny brick-shaped crayon with two points on it. They use everything that comes out of the mold.

I honestly have never even cleaned it out one time(!) so in my personal case, there is no mess, lol. The leftover colors melt in the subsequent batch and become part of the next crayon creation I guess. I also do not closely supervise their using this product. My 9 year old requires zero intervention to use the crayon maker, and she helps her brother out. She sets it up on the counter and plugs in it herself and puts it away herself. I don't think my 7 year old would be as capable and motivated to do it by himself at his age.

Mechanically speaking, it's worked fine for us for almost a year now. We have not replaced the bulb.

I think the age recommendation of 8-10 years old is pretty much on target.

I got this for my daughter last year for Christmas shes 7 now and it's a great product but it's a pain for adults. 1.) It takes around and hour or more to make 2 crayons so kids get inpatient waiting for the crayons to melt and harden so they can use them. 2.) By the time there hardened and out of the molds he kids are ready to start over again. 3.) So when it comes to adult time the cleaning process is such a pain you have to clean up the wax around the melter and then you have to clean out the molds which is some what easy but the melters are so hard to clean I've tried hot soap water the plastic knife a chop stick a sponge scrubber and napkins and I've tried it wet wax and hard wax and it's not easy to clean and get out of corners it takes forever and never fully comes cleans which means it stays in for the next round of crayon making. Making kids not so happy about the extra color and the time to make and clean it. It will definitely make kids learn patience. Over all it is a cool product if you're willing to clean hard and long and you have calm kids and friends. It would be cool if they had interchangeable molds and melters so the kids can start as soon as the process is over and the parents can start cleaning I would purchase those in a heart beat. My kids love it and always want to make crayons its me whose like huh maybe next week. It would also be cool if the lid didn't lock forever so u can hurry up and pull the melters out and maybe that would help while the wax is still melted as it seats their lid locked for 10 extra min the wax hardens to the melters. So buyer beware on this and have patience and hard cleaning skills. Over all again my kids love it and that makes me happy and we no longer have broken crayon bits around the house and the lid locking is great while its melted safety is #1 and it passes with flying colors as long as adults are supervising cause it does get very hot to the touch and if tipped over wax can spill out of vent holes and burn never happed to me yet but it could if parents arnt there with the child at all times.

    Comments about Crayola 1005900 Crayola Crayon Maker with Story Studio:

    My daughter really enjoys using the crayon maker. It is very simple to use and veey safe. The crayon maker won't open until it is not too hot. It has a very affordable price. It is a great way for kids and teachers to recycle their crayon pieces and old crayons. The only negative is that the size of the crayons are small because they come with four clips to put two pieces together. This way it is a double sided rainbow crayon!

              I got this for my daughter for christmas because she can not color with out breaking the crayons. When we opened it I didn't think the directions were very clear. It took about 30 minutes all together to make the crayons and then clean up was a real pain in the hiney. She wanted to keep making more, but I had to take the time to clean it after each use. We also had trouble with the pouring tray. We had a few trys were the poring tray kept popping out of the things that hold it.n It comes with little blue things that hold the crayons after you make them. The crayons broke and got stuck in there. I was so excited to get this for her, now I am disapointed. I am giving it a 2 because she did like using the mixed crayons after we were FINALLY done.

                    We bought this toy for our sons last year and we love making new crayons. We like to experiement to see what combinations make the best colors. We found we need to make sure to add enough light colors so we don't get a bunch of crayons that are hard to see the different colors.
