Key Features:
• Excellent quality plastic pencil crayons at a value price
• Non-toxic
• No mess on skin, clothes or furniture
• Harder than wax - shatter resistant, reduced powdering and flaking, better colour transfer
• Pencil body shape – easy to hold, control and sharpen

Perfect for drawing, colouring in and shading on paper, card or sugar paper, plastic pencil crayons are the best tool for achieving the crayon effect with a clean and accurate finish. YPO Plastic Pencil Crayons carefully balance the higher quality of premium options with the lower price of economy options to ensure the best value for your school; manufactured at just a few pence per piece, 100% satisfaction is assured with each and every YPO pencil crayon.

Plastic vs Wax Crayons
In comparison to standard wax crayons, plastic pencil crayons are harder in order to reduce breakage and enable a wider range of techniques involving variations in pressure. Due to their material, the crayons also will not melt in your hand, provide excellent rub-down and colour transfer, and reduce powdering and flaking to a minimum for a cleaner finished artwork.

Because of this higher quality and therefore higher cost, these pencil crayons are better suited to older or more serious artists who are able to use the crayons to their full potential. Although more expensive than wax alternatives, the durable, shatter-resistant pencil crayons will last a very long time and provide excellent value for money.

Pencil Body
Another benefit of pencil crayons is of course their familiar hexagonal pencil shape, which is much easier to control and doesn’t require users to learn a new grip or colouring technique. Again, this makes them better suited to older children who have developed the fine motor skills needed to hold and control a pencil with precision. The crayons can also be sharpened like a pencil for greater accuracy and versatility when colouring in finer details – ideal for graphic design, lettering, outlining and general colouring.

Non-Toxic
Plastic pencil crayons are non-toxic and will not cause harm if ingested by children. This makes them much safer than pens and paint, and suitable for unsupervised use by children in busy classrooms and homes.

Less Mess
Unlike pen and paint, crayons help children create without leaving accidental marks on skin, clothes or furniture. This makes the creative experience less stressful for everyone involved, and allows children to enjoy unsupervised fun with crayons whenever they want.

Not only do these other mediums cause more mess, but they are also susceptible to drying out. Crayons on the other hand will remain usable for long term use without the need for a lid – which can even present a choking hazard too.

With versatility, ultra-safe properties, high durability, and a long lifespan under tough circumstances, these crayons are perfect for everyone from children to professionals.

Excellent Quality
Despite a low price, YPO Plastic Pencil Crayons are of exceptional quality, resisting breakage and laying down bold, vivid colour better than any economy alternative. Colouring will be satisfying and relaxing as a result, and the crayons will last longer for schools on a budget.

Each pack includes 12 bright, vivid colours, specially selected to make a strong, bold statement on paper and reflect the full spectrum of colours encountered in everyday life.

Colours Included:
• Dark Blue
• Light Blue
• Purple
• Red
• Yellow
• Orange
