Kids Can Now Recycle Crayons

Crayons rock. Way more than colored pencils. But eventually, they’re all worn down, and sometimes you sharpen them and they’re just never the same, and you end up with all these crayon nubs that you’ve rendered impossible to hold. Until now, because now there’s a thing that lets you melt them and create new crayons. It’s supposed to be for kids to teach them recycling, but feel free to go ahead and borrow it.

Crayola‘s new Crayon Maker melts down used crayons to form new ones in three easy steps, allowing the creation of solid colors, multicolors, all of them eliminating the need to throw away perfectly functional crayons that would have ended up in the garbage. And perhaps in the digestive tracts of birds and vermin.

Can I please ship this to 1987?
