Crayola began when cousins Edwin Binney and C. Harold Smith took over Edwin's father's pigment business in 1885. Early products included red oxide pigment used as barn paint and carbon black used in car tires. Since then, the Crayola brand has grown into a portfolio of innovative art and craft supplies, and creative toys that give kids the power to express all that inspires them as they explore, discover, play, pretend and dream.
Some of Crayola’s popular products include sidewalk chalk, coloured pencil sets, art cases, Doodle Scents (scented markers), Marker Airbrush (spray art) and children’s paint sets, as well as the crayons for which they are so well known and loved.
