Introducing the Last Crayons You'll Ever Need to Buy

Tired of buying boxes and boxes of crayons? They just don't last long enough and need constant sharpening to keep their edge.

And what happens when you run of of RED? or GREEN? or BLUE?!

Now you've got to buy a whole new 64-pack from Crayola...

Why Colorlastics are Different

Colorlastics use a unique formula of safe, non-toxic ingredients to create a bendable crayon that never needs to be sharpened again. No matter how much you bend it, Colorlastics will keep its shape and be ready for whatever comes its way.

The best part? These are 100% Non-Toxic and Safe for ages 3 & up!

Virtually Indestructible!

Colorlastics are 20 times less breakable than your standard crayons. 

How?

It's our patented "Secret Formula" of 22 All-natural and Non-Toxic Ingredients that make our crayons "bendable", not breakable"

That means no little waxy bots of crayon and wrappers after playtime.

 

Perfect for Little Ones.

Our crayons have the soft texture kids have come to love and expect from their crayons – while still being unbreakable and bendable.

The crayon applies to paper smoothly and evenly just like regular crayons.

Kids who are in the process of developing their fine motor skills often have trouble knowing the correct amount of pressure to apply – leading to a lot of broken crayons and frustration!

With Colorlastics, kids can color easily without applying a lot of pressure, great for children who are developing their fine motor skills.

 

 

Spell, Count, Add and Subtract!

Colorlastics crayons come in fun letter and number shapes so you can do so much more than color.

Teachers, parents and caretakers will love how using Colorlastics makes kids more enthusiastic about learning.

Odorless, Non-Greasy and Easy Clean-up

Our Colorlastics crayons are completely odorless — no chemical-smell concoctions here.

They also won’t leave behind residue or grease behind.

Keep your home and classroom neat and tidy while maximizing fun!

Under $30 for a Virtual "Lifetime Supply"

Stop spending a fortune on art supplies for your young Picasso. We’ve priced Colorlastics to be affordable for everyone, starting at just $26 for a 124 pack – That's just a few bucks a year...

PLUS...you never have to go back to the store.

Coloring = NO SCREENS

We live in an increasingly digital world, and we’re afraid that traditional forms of childhood play are being replaced by iPads and smartphones. Let your kid be a kid with crayons they’ll truly love to play with.

The Original!

Since we have a patent on the Secret Formula of 22 All-Nautral Ingredient, you can be sure you're getting our 100% Non-Toxic product as long as you see the Colorlastics Logo

Educators will love how Colorlastics are unbreakable and long-lasting, saving them money and time from sorting through unusable, worn-down crayons. Invest in a set of Colorlastics that’ll last you all school year and even beyond.

For artists of all shapes and sizes

We’ve specifically designed Colorlastics to be appropriate for even the earliest learners. Because our crayons bend, flex, and are unbreakable, they’re safe and easy for children as young as one to begin developing their creativity.

Safe for kids and the earth 

In our patented formula, we use 22 raw materials that are not only 100% safe and nontoxic for children – they’re also kind on the earth. Rest easy knowing your kids can color safely, with the added bonus of knowing that you’re reducing your footprint on the planet with our eco-friendly reusable crayons.

Inspire creativity 

Children are born curious. Drawing and coloring develop the mind by providing children with mental stimulation and an outlet for their creativity. Inspire children to express themselves more with Colorlastics crayons they will love to use!

 

Meet the Colorlastics Team!

Ike & Jack have owned an e-commerce business together for the last 8 years. Their business sold thousands of different products throughout a variety of categories.

Ike and Jack share a passion for bringing new and innovated products to market and went on a search to find something kids can play with, enjoy, learn with and stay unplugged from today's technology. That's when we thought of a crayon that serves a second purpose - teaching children the Alphabet and Numbers!

The current wax crayons we are all so used to couldn't fill this void because they where just so fragile and would wear down easily. We traveled the world on a search to find something that would fix that problem.

We finally found something about 2 years ago at a trade show in China. They had the materials to create something very close to what we where looking for.  

After finding the right balance and mixture of safe ingredients, we began to test the moldings for the letters and numbers and finding the right size that would make it easiest for children to hold. We finally completed all our testing and design in the beginning of this year and started our journey to crowdfunding.

Risks and challenges

We’ve been entrepreneurs nearly our entire lives, and we’re always looking for a new market to disrupt and shake up. Crayons have been the same for decades, and with the advent of the tablet and smartphone generation, drawing is in danger of falling by the wayside. By getting kids excited about crayons again, we hope to re-ignite a passion for art and imagination

We want to bring this product to market and crowdfunding is an excellent way to gauge market interest and encourage awareness of our product. We love and stand behind this product wholeheartedly and can’t wait to get it into the hands of millions of children worldwide. To see our product change the way kids think about coloring and art would be a dream come true for us.

If we reach our funding goal, we’ll be able to produce our first order of Colorlastics and start getting this revolutionary new art tool into the hands of kids everywhere. With further funding, we can bring new colors, coloring books, larger and smaller bundle sizes, and even more!
