    Well, I went to Big W and Kmart yesterday and I couldn't find any Crayola washable crayons, only washable markers.
    So I got a pack of 12 jumbo Crayola markers and ofcourse, my carpet looked exceptionally bright this morning when I got up. Now, 3 hours later, it still looks bright as I can't get it out

    The Micador beeswax ones look good, but a bit exxy. Will google for better prices.
    I checked on ebay and with postage and all that, it's not really cheaper than buying them in a normal local shop.
    I actually saw the big twistable crayons and I was torn between them and the jumbo's.
    Unfortunately my DS can get quite carried away when drawing and likes to yell: "dot dot dot" while bashing the point of the crayon, with all his strength on the paper. I think that the twistables wouldn't survive very long

    baby bunting have the washable crayons HERE. I love these, they are so easy to clean. They can break easily if used roughly (they are a bit softer than normal crayons) but they still work broken and my kids love them.

    We had a phase where we had to ban crayons from our place. The risk of him drawing on everything outweighed the benefit of him being able to draw. He's fine now, but I still monitor him as he can occasionally get carried away. For that reason I prefer pencils, and again, supervised up at the table only.

    Well, I went to Spotlight yesterday and found the triangular "Early Start Beeswax" crayons that CJ had mentioned, for cheaper than the Crayola jumbo crayons.
    A 24 pack for $9,99 with a 30% off as they were on sale. So that's $6,- for 24 crayons and DS is doing really well with them. I can't recommend these high enough. They even resisted his "DOT DOT DOT" bashing
    The Crayola Jumbo crayons cost me $8,- for 12 crayons.

    I also got him some of tthe early Start Jumbo pencils and he seems to be holding them quite well too, but I don't think I'll really let him use them until he has stopped being so erhmmm excited when drawing lol
