*update* the winner is Carol, #28 and her comment was "I love the recycled cards to color."
Crayola products are labeled non-toxic but I have my doubts. Sophie was given two products by Crayola for her birthday from a friend; paint and sidewalk chalk. First, she tried the sidewalk chalk and broke out in hives. The next day, she tried the paint and broke out as well. We called the company and they said that some of their products contain gluten, so there is a definite chance for cross-contamination. We didn't want Sophie to use Crayola products to begin with, especially since in the past, asbestos was found in the crayons.
The verdict? Think twice about Crayola products if your child has celiac disease or a gluten allergy. Always check products and call the company to ask about allergens, because non-toxic doesn't mean allergy-free.
Stubby Pencil Studio was created in 2006 by Kate Rosenthal. She recognized (thank you, kate!) that there was a need for eco-friendly, do-it-yourself stationary products for young children. Her inspiration was her two daughters.
Kate is offering one lucky-ducky reader a beautiful package of beeswax crayons and a recycled sketchbook!
