New Children's Art Supplies and Color By Number Products from Faber-Castell

Share Article

Great art products enhance the creative experience for children. To help preserve the environment, our EcoPencils are all made with reforested wood.

Faber-Castell's newest EcoPencils

Kids enjoy Faber-Castell crayons because they have more color pigments and less wax which results in brighter colors and a smoother texture. New for 2011 – Jumbo Beeswax Crayons in 12-color and 24-color boxes. The jumbo size and triangular shape of these crayons make them easier for little hands to hold and help kids learn a proper grip. The vibrant, rich colors enhance the coloring experience.

The 12-count box of Jumbo Beeswax Crayons is $5.00, and the 24-count box is $10.00. Both are for children age 3 & up.

As with our other EcoPencils, the new Jumbo Triangular Colored EcoPencils are made from reforested wood. These pencils have a full-length barrel and come in 12 colors. The jumbo size and triangular shape of these pencils make them easier for little hands to hold and help kids learn a proper grip. The extra thick lead results in brighter colors on paper, and the break resistant lead means the pencils will last longer. Includes free sharpener. The 12-count box costs $8.00, and is for children age 3 & up.        

In 2010 Faber-Castell introduced a series of paint by number products; this year the company unveils a new version with a Color By Number line. These guided art projects have contemporary graphics on high quality illustration boards that provide kids with an exceptional art experience.

What makes our Color By Number products special? They have a 9" square illustration board, contemporary and whimsical graphics, 10 Faber-Castell Color GRIP markers, and Numbered Color Guides to follow a guide sheet for color placement, rather than having numbers printed on the board and potentially show through the artwork.

Faber-Castell Color By Number kits are available at retail for $10.00 each, and they come in 3 styles that appeal to kids age 7 and up.    

Color By Number Pop Art Puppies – color in a Warhol-style set of cute puppies
Color By Number Bloomin’ Butterflies – color in a set of butterflies with a blooming flower background
Color By Number Forest Friends – color in a delightful forest scene with an owl, deer, raccoon and more

Founded in 1761, the company proudly celebrates its 250th Anniversary in 2011. The company is an environmentally responsible manufacturer of premium art products for children. Our pencils, markers, crayons, and other art materials are designed to bring out the artist in every child. Our EcoPencils are made from reforested wood from Faber-Castell forests that are FSC certified, a warranty that the wood is obtained from renewable and sustainable sources, contributing to the preservation of the environment.
