Children can safely melt crayons to create vibrant, textured wax art with yolapen


Children have lost interest in the old models of toy cars, outdated dolls and basic building blocks. One thing that has remained consistent, from the classroom to the playroom, is children’s ability to sit down with a piece of paper, a drawing utensil and their imagination. To help children flourish their creativity in a tech-driven world, yolapen launches the only crayon-melting pen that can easily and safely switch from one color to the next. Today, yolapen launched a Kickstarter campaign in the hopes of raising $15,000 to help children create vibrant, textured wax art.

Children can use yolapen to melt various types of crayons and make unique artwork. This new children's product is comprised of a three-part system: a pen, a docking station and three cartridges. The process is simple: remove the wrapper from the crayon, insert the crayon into the cartridge, wait one minute for heating, insert yolapen into the cartridge, remove yolapen from dock and begin coloring.

With an automated cartridge mechanism, yolapen lets users quickly and easily switch colors without having to use an entire crayon. This feature allows children to mix colors in the cartridge to create new unique colors. With a specifically designed pen tip, yolapen locks when pressure is taken off, preventing spills or leaks of any kind. Because the wax remains secure in each cartridge, the user is isolated from all heat sources, preventing any injury or possible burning. The safe, low-heat product can be used on multiple surfaces. The kit also comes with a crayon wrapper removal tool to help discard the label on each crayon. An adaptable power plug makes yolapen compatible with worldwide power requirements.

The founders of yolapen noticed that children have plenty of crayons, coloring books and notepads, but are getting tired of the traditional methods of coloring. In result, children are picking up electronics. It’s the company’s goal to revolutionize the way kids and parents look at typical arts and crafts. This product brings children a new form of entertainment and brings parents a mess-free way to flourish their children’s creativity.

Yolapen is best suited for children 8 and older. The new toy is currently available for pre-order on Kickstarter for $29.00 USD, which includes one yolapen, one docking station with three cartridges, and one box of crayons, all for 35% off the retail price.
