- My two year old daughter was bought some of these crayons as a present a couple of years ago, and she spent many happy bath times scribbling on the sides of the bath.
Unfortunately her favourite colours wore down very quickly, as the length of the crayon part is only approx. half the length of the plastic casing. Also, the crayon part had a tendency to fall out of the plastic case, and although it was east to put it back in this was only ever a temporary fix.
Sometime later I bought her a different smaller cheaper brand of bath crayons, but they were useless. They barely made a mark on the bath, and when they did draw they made a mark that was near impossible to clean off the side of the bath. Also after only one or two uses they left some white waxy residue on the crayon which made drawing with them even worse. I tried at least two other makes of bath crayons. Same problem.
So this Christmas when I wanted to buy both of my children some new bath crayons, I came full circle and bought them the ELC ones again. After all, they were the only ones that ever really drew on and cleaned off like bath crayons should. Now I have two happy children at bath time.
