My 2.5 years old daughter loves coloring just like other kids of her age.I introduced colors to her when she was 18 months old, and ever since I have been engaging her in painting and coloring sessions.Whenever I go to a stationery shop, I always tend to look for something new and out of the box tools or kits which will enable my daughter to engage in an activity so that she doesn’t get bored.This is because kids generally get bored very easily and if they are playing or engaging with the same set of tools or activities time and again.There are also times when she doesn’t want to color but just play along with the crayons.At a time it is making different shapes with the crayons and at other times it is just peeling off the paper covering of the crayons.I also found out that as she was taking off the paper covers of the crayons due to which some amount of color was also going inside her nails.The fact that my daughter has a habit of thumb sucking scared me because she would start sucking her thumb after she was done with this coloring session of hers.This would naturally scare me because there were times when I would find bits of the crayons in her nails.Frankly speaking, we always check the ingredients of the food we buy and its expiry, but we never did this for crayons.This was a time when Azafran Organic Crayons came to my rescue!

WHAT CAUGHT OUR ATTENTION?
These are colors, but of course, the following things caught our attention:
1.ORGANIC NATURE- I never knew what exactly went into making of colors.But when I found Azafran organic crayons, I was happy that my daughter was playing and learning with something safe and completely natural.The best part being the colors are edible, so we need not worry even if the kid by mistake eats them.
2.SQUARE SHAPED – This is the best feature which I personally liked about them.You need not sharpen the crayons, a thing which we often tend to do for other brand crayons.You can just start scribbling or coloring from any end of the square crayon.The square shape improves gross motor skills.The very way in which the kid will hold the crayons will definitely enable in developing these skills.
3.ENABLE PLAY TIME – Yes apart from the coloring session in which your kids will indulge in, these coloring blocks are bound to become your kids best friends.They are fun for stacking and building.Kids can play different stacking games with these, just in the same way as they would do with blocks of any kind.
4.NEED NOT BE SHARPENED -All crayons these days with a sharpener.But Azafran crayons need not be sharpened.They are square shaped and can be held from any angle and put to use on the canvas.They provide easy grip for those little hands.
5.WATERPROOF & NON STICKY- The Azafran colors are waterproof and nonsticky.Even if it stains your kids’ clothes(they tend to transfer color to clothes are they are a bit greasy), the color comes off very easily.
MOMMYSWALL REVIEW -
We give it a 4.5/5 rating.All in all, it is an excellent product, the prime reason being it is organic in nature and is made with 100% natural ingredients which include organic waxes of palm and soya, organic soya butter & food grade colors.I would definitely recommend Azafran box of crayons to fellow mommies.
We would like to see more colors in the box, as currently, it has only 8 of them.
