* Crayons were introduced to the world in 1903. An 8-pack sold for 5 cents.
* A child in the US goes through about 720 crayons by the age of 10.
* Crayons are made mostly out of paraffin wax - a substance also used by NASA, which turns it into fuel for the Peregrine rocket.
* The Crayola Experience in Easton, PA, is home to BIG BLUE, the world's largest crayon that weighs 1,500 pounds.
(Psst! Teachers! At CARVEDCRAYONS on Etsy, you can order pop culture characters, pet portraits, and other items sculpted from crayons.)
