I bought these when my son was young (toddler age). They looked really cute, but were a little pricey. I am all for a good price, so I was a little disappointed in that. I bought them anyway. I will give Crayola that Crayola TaDoodles are fun and adorable, but they aren't worth that hassle or money. I fell into the trap that these crayons are easier for babies and toddlers to hold. They are not. The round ball shape is awkward. It's easy to grab, but not the best to draw with. I find that the thicker crayons are a much better choice for little guys and gals. The other problem that I had with these is that the crayons don't stay in well. Kids can pull them in and out easily and they can just fall out. It ended up being more of a hassle then fun. I wouldn't recommend getting these. You'll just waste your time. There are so many other great Crayola products out there. I was just really disappointed in this one. They could make some changes to it to make it better.
