Crayola has added color to our lives for years with their ever-growing line of crayons, pencils, markers, paints, and all sorts of creative tools, but it’s always been their classic 24-crayon box that’s been a staple of so many childhoods. However, get ready to embrace change, because for the first time in a century, Crayola is killing off one of their classic colors.
Scheduled to make the big announcement on National Crayon Day (of course that’s a thing) during a live Facebook stream, March 31 will see one of Crayola’s colors end up on the cutting room floor.
So which will go? Well, it could be red, yellow, blue, brown, orange, green, violet, or black. It could also be carnation pink, yellow orange, blue green, red violet, or even red orange. If it’s none of those that’s getting axed, then it will be either yellow green, blue violet, white, violet red, dandelion, cerulean (Devil Wears Prada, anyone?), apricot, scarlet, green yellow, indigo, or gray.
While we’re sad to see any of the colors ditched, if there’s a certain shade you can’t live without, you can let Crayola know by posting an image of your preferred pick using the hashtag #ShareYourFave. Plenty of peeps are already doing just that…
Might be time to start hoarding those classic colors before they disappear forever.
What do you think about the fact that Crayola is getting rid of one of their classic colors? Which color would you be upset to lose? Let us know @BritandCo!
