About this project

I would like to think that if Edwin Binney and C. Harold Smith were around today they would appreciate this, the same way that millions of consumers have appreciated their improvement on chalk. 

  

 

  

  

 

    

  

  

I have been very fortunate to find and work with Jonathan Yaffe, my engineer with Javelin MEC.  Together with my manufacturer Phoenix Analysis and Design Technologies (PADT), we will produce the last crayon box you will ever need.  Below you will see PADT's wall of patents, a large portion of which are for medical implants.  You will be receiving a quality product.

Please note:

The Crayon Box is designed for Crayola Crayons. So other crayons may not fit properly in the favorite crayon holder. This Kickstarter campaign is for the crayon box.  I show crayons in the presentation so that you can see the function of the box.  The boxes that will be donated to children in need will of course have crayons as provided by No Crayon Left Behind.

  

 

Risks and challenges

Here is what I see going forward: ReadyXO is a result of two years of hard work. I am here to make this a success. The pre-production stage includes tooling to manufacture a product of these specifications. Tooling is expensive and requires expert knowledge to get it right. There is typically a 60 day lead time to create the molds, which is when some delays could occur. Between ReadyXO's engineer, Jonathan Yaffe of Javelin MEC, and manufacturer, Phoenix Analysis and Design Technologies, we will make any delays short as possible.

As we gear up for production, there will likely be some minor adjustments to improve the final product. We will always be making product improvements to make it better, and we'll let you know exactly how and why any are made. ReadyXO's manufacturer has years of experience delivering excellent products in large quantities. My overall goal is to make the best possible product for you and your children.
