Around the time children enter kindergarten, they begin to explore the art of small-scale, detailed drawing. While parents and teachers never want to discourage big and bold art, colored pencils are an ideal tool for children to use to satisfy their urge to draw smaller, intricate shapes. A set such as this one, with 50 different colors, also gives children the chance to explore the world of color. They can carefully fill in the blotchy markings of a calico kitten or precisely form each blade of grass–maybe trying a combination of yellow-green, pine, and jade. Older artists will appreciate the generous assortment of vibrant colors as well as the convincing metallic shades of silver and gold. Although most colors are true to their labels, a few don't deliver. For example, the pale rose leans more toward an antique, dusty rose, and the taupe is just a shade dark. But overall this is a great set of colored pencils, appropriate for any household.

Work Very Well With Adult Coloring Books

Crayola Colored Pencils are excellent. They deliver ‘very vivid’colors, there are a wide variety of shades, and they are under $7! (It’s Amazon so of course delivery was on time and well packaged). On arrival the pencils a pre-sharpened, they have a good weight to them, and with a decent sharpener one turn of the pencil sharpener and you have a nice sharp tip – btw just the tip needs sharpening. Coloring is a breeze – I can layer colors, outline, shade, make the colors as bright or as muted as want.

Surprisingly Good! Really!

I recently picked up a set of these colored pencils “on a lark” to use as supplemental to my other, more expensive sets, and was pleasantly surprised – no, nearly shocked – at their quality and performance. It’s not that they are better than the best Koh-i-noor or Prismacolor pencils (because they aren’t), but the truth is that, for their price, they are very difficult to beat. But price alone is not the determinant factor here: if a colored pencil is cheap but performs poorly, then there is no point in picking it up. But what I quickly discovered with these Crayola pencils is that not only are they inexpensive (they break down to only about 20 cents per pencil, compared to anywhere from $1 to $4 per pencil for the more expensive brands), but they perform exceptionally well, to boot.

Great for a Young Artist at an affordable Price

I appreciate Crayola’s effort to manufacture their Colored Pencils in a way that reads to be somewhat environmentally conscientious. I placed my order for these after researching the technicalities of production via their website, which was extremely informative.

Excellent colour quality.

They work great! This is the best value. I thought 50 colors are plenty, but once you start using them, you do feel like you could use 100 colors… But I just start getting in to coloring, so this is a great start. I am learning to blend different colors also. I have not used any other colored pencils, so I can’t compare with others, but I am pretty happy with it.

Beautiful Colors

These pencils produce great art and are easy to use. I like them best when they are very sharpened so I keep a sharpener close by. I notice that the sharper the pencil is, the easier it is to stay within the lines when coloring. I love the colors in this 50 pencil box. There are some lovely pastels like light blue, pink, mauve and peach. I use these pencils when coloring in the

Enjoying these pencils using them to color in a number of adult books. I have no complaints at all! I just wish I was more talented to use them to their full potential drawing and shading. They were packaged well, no missing or damaged pencils, and were received in a timely manner.

Great product. No issues sharpening them.

Great quality. I bought these to color one of those intricate adult coloring books. I read the reviews here before purchasing and was hesitant to buy them with all the reviews saying how much they break and cannot be sharpened. I’ve used and sharpened all of my colors with no issues at all.

Grandma Really Enjoys These.

I purchased these for my grandmother she really likes their vibrant colors and that they don’t break off when your drawing coloring or when you are sharpening them.
