‘Colours of the World’ crayons to represent 40 skin tones

Through the new multicultural crayons called ‘Colours of the World’ by Crayola, children are going to be able to colour in with hues that “authentically reflect(s) the full spectrum of human complexions”

The company said that it hopes that the new box of crayons will help “cultivate a more inclusive world for children of all ages, races, cultures and ethnicities.”

Crayola CEO Rich Wuerthele said that the crayons were developed to “advance inclusion within creativity” among children and “increase representation and foster a greater sense of belonging and acceptance”.
