    Crayola have some good crayons for 2 year olds - if you have a kmart nearby checkout the crayola section, they have quite a good variety. I also find crayola pencils are much better than some of the other cheaper ones - the colours are brighter and they sharpen better too. They make some nice short fat pencils for little kids.

    Square crayons are great. I've never been able to break one

    We got DD1 an Aquadoodle. It's a mat that reacts to water and has a little pen that you fill up at the tap. DD loves it and if she tries to draw on anything else it doesn't matter, it's just water

    Spotlight has these Faber Castell First grip crayons. They have been great with DS who loves to treat his crayons as rough as possible.
    Spotlight also carries a large range of Micador arts and crafts-ware.
    I have the beeswax crayons (only 9 bucks) for DS and they are soft, wash out easily and because of the thick triangle shape, easy to hold for him as well.
    They also come in a nice plastic carry case:

    Another product I tried with DS are these wooden crayons from Micador. Very strong and nearly unbreakable:

    I am keen to try these out as well. Finger crayons:

    And also the giant crayons:

    I bought some Crayola jumbo crayons and A) They didn't wash out of his clothe and B) They were all broken within a week

    Sorry for the late reply.
    They're not square, sorry! My mistake. They're more like a rectangular prism?
    Stockmar is one brand. They are exxy, but the colours are so beautiful and they are wonderful for little hands. I buy them online
