It’s finally here! The new blue crayon from Crayola we’ve been so patiently waiting for. You might remember the crayon company said farewell to a color in March…Dandelion. The crayon, which was introduced in 1990, from its 24-pack of crayons was a piece of everyone’s childhood everywhere. But we have to admit, this new shade of blue is pretty cool.
The inspiration comes from an accidental discovery in 2009. A blue pigment called YInMn was the first new blue pigment to be discovered in 200 years! The color won’t actually come in boxes just yet because Crayola is holding a naming contest for the shade. Have any ideas on what it should be called? Enter here!
