While shopping at Target yesterday, I bribed my two year old daughter with a Crayola Tower. The deal was as long as she didn't whine and cry, the Tower stayed in the cart. She's very willful and yes, we became the proud owners of a large quantity of crayons (which we already had at home, just in a much less orderly state). In the last 24 hours the tower became an instant hit and the girls followed my single directive- take care of them and put them back where they belong. So far, so good.
Now the only qualm I have with this tower is the way it is organized in the package. Crayola sells it with all different colors next to each other. There is no rhyme or reason to how the colors are placed and I feel that it does the user a disservice. It is much easier and saves a lot of time when the colors are in order. Therefore I reorganized the tower and am giving the shout out to Crayola that this is how their tower should be organized in the package. I'm more than happy to consult with them on it. This first one's free;)
The thing I LOVE about this tower is the sharpener that comes with it. When I was young the Crayola sharpeners just made the end into a cone. This Crayola sharpener makes the tip look EXACTLY like a new crayon. It's fabulous.
