Created by two Melbourne mums in mid-2015, Tinta Crayons emerged from a discovery that asbestos was found in five brands of crayons on sale in Australia!
Horrified that these dangerous crayons weren't recalled and that crayon contamination is happening more and more frequently, Maria Fletcher set upon her journey to create a safe, eco-friendly and fun set of crayons.
Tinta then joined forces with her wonderful neighbour Maria Porto who had helped pack boxes and test prototypes with her own children.
The result? Tinta Crayons are:
Made from organic waxes that are farmed sustainably (the exact recipe is top secret, but the main ingredient is eco-friendly Australian beeswax!)
Hand-poured and packed in Melbourne in many different shapes
Packaged in 100% recyclable materials which are sourced from within Australia
Contain no nasty palm, soy or paraffin (a by-product of petroleum) waxes
Big and chunky - perfect for little fingers!
Come in many different shapes to encourage imaginative play, drawing and colouring (our favourite is the t-rex!)
In addition to other popular designs including dinosaurs, fairies, animals and more; Tinta Crayons have released three festive Easter designs which are a fantastic gift idea.
Tinta’s ‘egg’ crayons are the perfect non-chocolate gift for creative kids this Easter. Each set contains six ‘eggs’ in six different colour each with their own unique design.
Designed to celebrate Easter while sparking little (and big) imaginations, these hand poured crayons withstand the heat of the tightest grip while giving a gorgeous colour pay-off.
While chocolate eggs will be gone in minutes, this gift from Tinta Crayons will ensure the joy of Easter lasts long after the morning egg hunt is over.
We just love that these Easter eggs won't leave the kids with a sugar high!
