Comments about Rainbow Sorting Crayons:

The larrge crayon containers are lovely and bright and great for colour sorting. The only problem is that the tubes are made of cardboard, so when the children try to put the plastic lid on, the top edge of the tube is getting damaged thus not allowing the lid to sit on properly. This is a shame as it is a popular activity at my playgroup but it will need replacing too regularly to make it value for money. I would rather have paid a little more for a more sturdy product.

Comments about Rainbow Sorting Crayons:

The children loved this. Nicely packaged and instantly appealing, they couldn't wait to see what was inside. A great resource for helping to learn colours, but also has other uses for matching and sorting
