    I like using Crayola slipsticks with my 3 year old because they give a satisfying bold colour unlike crayons which don't always give the colour contrast. Only slight issue is they are easy to twist too high and then they snap easily, but with close supervision I can normally intervene before that happens.

    Create beautiful colour...........but for your toddler, protect surfaces around the paper as the colours are so vivid.

    Love this product! 28 Nov 2011
    By Leey - Published on Amazon.com
    Durability:    Educational:    Fun:   
    After reading the negative comments, I thought I would give my two cents as well. Yes, the product is very waxy and glides over paper really easily, which is why I bought it for my 14 month old daughter. She loves it. It does take supervision and does write easily on fabric, etc. But I took a wet wipe and the colors came right off of her hands. I also had her draw in her high chair and the slick stix wiped off really easily off the plastic tray.

    In buying this product, the buyers just need to know that they draw very easily on anything and will mark up anything it touches. But I thought it cleaned up a lot easier than markers and crayons - no scrubbing. And because it draws so easily, it was a great first-step in introducing my little one into the world of art. But everything takes supervision and quick reflexes to make sure they don't draw on surfaces you don't want marked up.

    great for children with low muscle tone in their hands 10 Sep 2012

    My daughter has a hard time using regular crayons because she does not have the strength in her hands to make the crayons "work". These are perfect for her and produce beautiful vibrant colors.

    Oil-based crayons: MESSY 14 Dec 2012
    By -k- - Published on Amazon.com
    Durability:    Educational:    Fun:   
    Apparently people thought oil-based crayons should be given to toddlers. Definitely NO.

    These very much ARE like taking a tube of lipstick and coloring with it. Yes, GREAT description! That's what oil pastels are like, too. These's a HUGE chance to get messy with these, so if your aim is pristine children and carpets, you're way better off with Color Wonder or a similar product. (Those are great for travel, BTW.)

    But it's Slick Stix oil base that allows them to (A) glide on the paper so smoothly, and (B) lay down a layer of vibrant color like you wouldn't believe.

    Occupational Therapists, if you're looking for a writing tool that gives more sensory feedback than a dry-erase, but with less resistance than a pencil or a crayon, give these a shot. They are LARGE, so no authoring a paper with these; you're going to be making large muscle movements with these things!

    IMO they certainly aren't any more messy than acrylic paint or Play-Doh. If you make an art project you want to keep for a long time, you might want to look into using a sealant of some kind, like Krylon or the like.

    It's a TOY, it's ART, It's MESSY, it's OKAY. Cool grandmas and aunts: Set up a space in the garage for using these and have the kids make suncatchers with them on wax paper. Have the kids wear old clothes and expect some mess to come with the territory. (You know, like the time you let them do sand art in the garage.)

    I'd probably restrict them to age 5 and up...certainly not for mouthing toddlers. Older kids will probably like how vibrant the colors are; and older artists (12+), these are easier to use than oil pastels. Realize they have the same mess factor, be prepared, and go experiment with these things, they're pretty cool. As for cleanup, we really didn't have any stains, but I'd assume anything that you'd use to remove oil (Dawn dishwashing liquid, for instance) should work for easy stuff like your hands.

    If you want hard to remove stains, try pottery some time...

    Facinating crayons! 18 Jan 2014
    By Amazonmom - Published on Amazon.com
    Verified Purchase
    My 4 year old niece LOVED these! Upon opening, her mother said, "oh no, your aunt thinks you're old enough for markers." And I said, "These aren't markers!" Even with other presents around, the 4 year old was fascinated with these and started coloring immediately.

    Horrible, Messy Product 31 Mar 2011
    By J. Spoon - Published on Amazon.com
    If I could give these a worse rating I would. I bought these for my 3 year old daughter because they looked like something that would be age appropriate and not get her as messy as a set of markers usually does. They are so much worse. The wax is a very soft, clay like consistency. As she colors with them the wax balls up on the page and then falls on to the floor or her clothes. It smears into the carpet or all over her face. This is probably the worst children's product I have ever bought. I wouldn't even buy it for my 10 year old daughter because as the wax builds up into little chunks it is almost impossible to keep from making a mess. Don't buy these unless you want to be cleaning wax smears off your floor for the next month. I'm hoping I can get the stuff that was tracked into the carpet out with some resolve. Test group fail, horrible product.
