My grandson is loving these. I like to do art often and my grandkids come over to paint. My 2 year old grandson is a destructive little guy and likes to participate, but breaks brushes and crayons. These are so perfect. They are short, chunky and bright colored. they arent easy to break and they stack up nicely when finished so they dont make a mess. Great for little finger, because there is a ball to grab onto..
