Children love to color, and with these versatile hippo crayons, coloring time will be even more fun.

The issue with typical pencil crayons is that they are designed to be a straight line. When drawing lines is the only thing your utensil can do properly, there is a flaw in the design. These crayons have a fun shape, and multiple sides that allow for many different techniques.

These hippos are flat on the bottom. This allows you to pair it with another crayon, and then you can have multi-color work. Also, since they are designed in the shape of an animal, there are many different degrees of depth. This makes sure you can draw fat or thin lines, or you can use the flat side to shade. Also, a portion of sales will go towards charities that deal with environment conservation.

Your kids will love these hippo crayons, and the different textures will allow them to explore their creativity.
