Crayola to Retire and Replace One Color from Its 24-color Box

by Shane McGlaun

Back in grade school, we judged how well off you were by the size of the box of crayons you brought to class. If you had that giant 64-color box with the built in sharpener, your family clearly was rolling in dough. If you brought the generic colors in an 8-box you were on the opposite end of the economic scale. These days, schools put the middle-of-the-road 24 color box on the required school supply list to make things more equal.

Now, Crayola has announced that it will be killing off one of the Crayons in the 24 count box. At first glance you might think perhaps the shitty white Crayon would get the axe, but that one is needed to make different shades of the other colors. It’s the only way you got gray back in the day unless your rich parents sprung for the 64-count box.

This is the same thing that Monopoly pulled when it retired the thimble. The announcement of the retired color and what color will replace it will come on March 31, also known as National Crayon Day (who knew?) My money’s on that ever so slightly different blue color in the top row.
