Melissa And Doug Vegan-Friendly Crayons
My little man loves to draw and color, but we abstain from buying crayons because they simply aren’t vegan. Most crayons contain not only beeswax, but also tallow (animal fat). I really wanted to find him a set of vegan crayons, so I started doing a little research. They turned out easier to find than I expected; Coming across multiple sources, I ordered a set of Melissa and Doug crayons.
Melissa and Doug use plastic rather than wax, eliminating the need for animal products in their crayons. I couldn’t be more thrilled with these! The colors are beautiful and color perfectly smooth, better than wax crayons in my opinion. The triangle shape keeps them from rolling away and is easy for little hands to grasp. The hard plastic case is wonderful for travel; they fit so easily into a purse or diaper bag. And I learned, as I watched in horror as my little man accidentally knocked the box across the floor and proceeded to step all over them as he scurried to gather the ones in his view, they’re definitely extra durable. Not a single one has broken in his little hands or under his little feet. These crayons even seem to last longer. Look at all the coloring done with those two crayons in the last picture, and the points are barely worn down. I’m so excited for the many hours of coloring we’re going to do with these. He just loves them and so do I!
