This month’s Eco-Baby POM, Soy Crayon Rocks, found at Gold Fish Toy Shop online, is a great eco-friendly way to bring life to your toddler’s colourful creations. The crayon wax is made organically, not from paraffin wax. Other crayons are made from this paraffin wax, which is a by-product derived from petroleum and powdered pigments. Organically grown soy is used to create the Soy Crayon Rocks, and they are vibrantly coloured with mineral pigments.
The crayons are purpose-designed to encourage your little artist to use her thumb, first and second fingers to hold them. Her fine motor skills will start to develop as she strengthens the muscles used in writing with pen or pencil. I wish I had these as a toddler; perhaps if I did, I wouldn’t be an adult with what looks like a four year old’s hand writing. For this reason, occupational therapist love to use these little rocks with their little patients. This design also makes them very easy for little hands to grip, without snapping or breaking the crayon.
The colour that comes off when using the rocks is vibrant and playful, with little effort from your toddler, which keeps them interested and engaged. What better art work is there from your kids than a mess of bright colour bunched on the page!
There are sixteen colours in each pack: red; pink; blue; sky; green; grass; dark yellow; light yellow orange; peach; purple; light purple; brown; tan; black and gray. The Soy Crayon Rocks come in a reusable draw-string bag, to save on packaging – a wonderfully eco-friendly feature, and another reason these little rocks are September’s Eco-Baby Product of the Month.
