Crayola’s Colours Of The World: 24 New Skin Tone Colours, A Step For Inclusivity

Like every other kid, I had my fair share of drawing and colouring as a child. Art is essential for the mind as it allows and encourages self-expression when words do not suffice. The act of colouring is relaxing as well, maybe I should get my hands on an adult colouring book.

In the time of inclusivity and cancel culture, many of us consider the big things that affect such as laws and policies. However, we often forget that the little things such as size-inclusive Barbies and colour inclusive crayon packs would influence our perception on inclusivity as well. We are, after all, a reflection of our society.

Crayola, the American handicraft giant recently announced the Colors of the World Skin Tone Crayons, 24 Count crayon pack. As the name suggests, this 24-pack includes different crayon colours that are meant to be used when colouring in skin tones in your drawings. About time Crayola!

Personally, I cannot even remember how I coloured in my skin tone as a child, but knowing that children now can easily use a crayon that matches their skin tone accurately is very heartwarming. In addition to the skin tones, eight of the 24 colours are classic Crayola colours meant for the hair and eyes. These Crayons are set to be released in July 2020 but do not appear to be available internationally yet.

However, if you’re looking for something similar, you can get the Crayola Multicultural Crayons that features eight skin tone colours on Amazon now.

Price: $2 USD (S$2.84)
Date: July 2020
