The Binney & Smith Company of New York and Easton, Pennsylvania, began operations producing paints, school pencils, and dustless chalk for classroom use. In 1903, it introduced a box of eight Crayola crayons for 5 cents. For nearly 100 years, Crayola has dominated the wax crayon business. In fact, 98 out of every 100 consumers recognize the word "Crayola." Each year, the Toy Manufacturers of America list Crayola's box of 64 crayons as one of the best selling toys--selling better, in fact, than any year's Cabbage Patch doll, Tickle Me Elmo, or Furby. But even though Crayola has a sure winner with its line of crayons, it has added products to suit an ever more varied and sophisticated coloring consumer. Crayola's package of No-Drip Paint Brush Pens surely pleases moms happy to avoid a paint mess (as much as that mess may delight young artists). A product of convenience and creativity, the No-Drip Paint Brush Pens require no time-consuming set up or laying down of protective newspapers before paints can be poured and mixed with water. And these pens can't be spilled, so there is no messy clean-up either.
