Crayons are NOT created equally as teachers are well aware. That is indeed the case with the Tombow Tokyo Collection Yo-i Crayon set. At first glance, the Yo-i Crayon reminded me of a rocket.
Have you ever tried to take a picture of a window in order to see what picture is drawn with crayons? Talk about horrible. The only way to see what was done is to hold something solid on the outside of the window in order to take the picture from inside. My 7 year old helper tried, but our pictures of our window picture were horrible. You’re just going to have to take my word that these Yo-i Crayons are great on glass. Clean up is a breeze!
My 7 year old helper has been asking me for the past few weeks if I’m famous because of Penniless Teacher blog. Despite my negative responses, she insists I must be! Coloring, she asked for one of those pretty little cards with my name on them….aka a business card. I was then presented with this.
7 year old: Penny, why do you get cool stuff and then we can’t keep it?
Penny: We always give everything to the teachers at your school.
7 year old: Yes, but can we PLEASE keep these?
Penny: Why should we keep the Yo-i Crayons?
7 year old: Because I’m an artist and I NEED these really good crayons!
There you have it folks, an artists endorsement of the Yo-i Crayons which has more weight than regular old Penny from Penniless Teacher.
