Crayola Colors of the World Crayons, 24 Count Crayon Colors

This year, Crayola took significant strides towards advancing inclusion and fostering a greater sense of belonging and acceptance among children by developing the Crayola Colors of the World Crayons. Crayola specially formulated twenty-four colors representing people of the world and eight classic crayons for coloring eyes and hair.

The Crayola Colors of the World Crayons are an exciting addition to the already very popular Crayola brand. The subtle shades inside this crayon box were specially designed to mirror and represent over 40 global skin tones. Crayola worked alongside Victor Casale for eight months to develop these special crayons to represent the growing diversity world better.

The Colors of the World fall into three main shades: Almond, Golden, and Rose- and all the darker or lighter shades in between.

How did the Colors of the World Come to be?

To ensure the new Colors of the World crayons were developed to show an accurate and inclusive skin tone palette, Crayola partnered with Victor Casale, former Chief Chemist and Managing Director, R&D of MAC cosmetics and Co-founder and Chief Innovation Officer of Cover FX and currently CEO of MOB Beauty. With Victor’s over 30 years of experience creating foundation colors and global skins tones, they were able to bring the Colors of the World Crayons to life.

They created crayon colors from light to deep shades across rose, almond, and golden undertones, ending in a 24 global shade palette that authentically reflects the full rainbow of human complexions.
