Beeswax crayons from Muji

I know this isn’t going to help with the whole crayon graveyard problem that Dina wrote about last week, but I just love these beeswax crayons from Muji.  For one, they come in a little box with a plastic tray insert and it seems to keep them a bit more organized than normal crayon boxes. And for two, the colours of the crayons are a bit more unique than normal conventional crayons, and it seems to me they have a bolder, deeper color on paper.

Muji is great for stuff like this. Check out their recycled newspaper coloured pencils, and their 36-colour pen sets — just a bit cooler than your average pens and pencils. And after all, like Dina said… there’s nothing better than a shiny new box of crayons!

Gasp. No colour names though? That’s the best part about Crayola crayons!

Muji used to make this big candy jar tub or short fat markers. There were 70 markers and the kids loved it and never had problems putting it away. I don’t use anything else anymore. You can still find them in stores (in Milan) but I see they are not selling them online.

I love the fact that there’s no text on them – nice and minimalistic!
