Crayon Rocks was founded by special education teacher Barbara Lee. She wanted to create a soft soy wax crayon in the perfect shape and size for young children to use. Since a child's first writing tool is usually a crayon, that crayon should be one that encourages him or her to use thumb, first and second fingers in a tripod grip.
Crayon Rocks are made from U.S.A. grown and processed soy wax, unlike most other crayons on the market, which are usually made from petroleum paraffin wax. All Crayon Rocks are made in the US.
