Crayola Store Description
Besides perhaps a candy store, there's no shopping excursion more fun for kids than a shop devoted to all things Crayola. Not only can you grab a classic box of 64 crayons and a jumbo coloring book here, but the store offers interactive exhibits where kids can learn fun facts about their favorite crayon colors, stuffed crayon toys, and easels with poster-sized sheets of plain paper awaiting your little Picasso's arrival.
Babies: There's plenty of room to maneuver a stroller in the store, and babies will enjoy getting a glimpse of the wiggling, colorful shapes of light projected on the floor and walls throughout the store.
Toddlers & Pre-K: The easels in the store are toddler-height and there's no lack of crayons to choose from. Kids this age will love the giant coloring books, stuffed crayons in several colors, board books, and puzzles for sale here.
School-Age Kids: Three words will be sure to drive your school-age kid wild: Sidewalk Paint Sprayers. Kids can take their next hopscotch game up a notch using washable paint that looks like sidewalk chalk.
Pre-Teens & Teens: Kids with an artistic bent can pick up colored pencils, watercolors, or even "reminisce" with a box of crayons. Tie dye T-shirts with the Crayola logo are for sale, too.
