New Crayola Outdoor Toys Redraw the Boundaries of Creativity!

 Crayola is cranking up the “fun factor” with a new way for kids to paint, yes paint, big, bold art on driveways and sidewalks.  The Crayola Sidewalk Paint Sprayer lets kids “spray paint” amazing, one-of-a-kind designs that will “wow” the kids on the block.  Just squeeze the trigger on the motorized sprayer and a colorful stream of sidewalk paint swirls its way onto driveways or sidewalks from two plastic paint bottles attached to the handle.  A dial lets kids spray pink or blue paint or mix the colors together to make purple!  The sprayer’s nozzle can be adjusted to create thick or thin lines, or, a light, wispy mist effect.  An automatic shut-off switch ensures that paint can only spray downward, so kids can’t give the family car a new paint job in Crayola colors!  When the painting fun is over, it easily rinses away with water.

 The Crayola Sidewalk Paint Sprayer comes with two 10-oz. pre-filled bottles of pink and blue Crayola Washable Sidewalk paint, a sprayer with an adjustable nozzle, convenient carry handle and a belt clip.  Four AA batteries are not included.  Crayola Sidewalk Paint refills are available in a variety of sizes and colors ranging from $1.99 to $9.99.

Crayola took a classic outdoor art tool -- sidewalk chalk -- and created a brand new way to play with it!  The Crayola Rainbow Rake lets kids load up to five sticks of Crayola Sidewalk chalk into a colorful plastic rake to create long, wavy lines as colorful as a rainbow on driveways and sidewalks.  Pull the rake’s handle toward you and its “arms” separate, so kids can draw squiggly lines -- up to five at a time.  Or, readjust the handle to draw the spokes back together for creating large letters or shapes.  Quick-release chalk holders on each spoke make it easy to insert and remove chalk.  There’s room to store extra Sidewalk chalk in the rake’s handle, so kids won’t run out of color working on their colossal outdoor creations! The Rainbow Rake comes with 5 sticks of pastel colored Crayola Sidewalk chalk. 

Crayola Giant Sidewalk Stencils let kids combine their favorite outdoor art activities into a colossal coloring and painting party!  Super-size stencils of some of their favorite characters, including Sponge Bob SquarePants and Ariel from Disney’s The Little Mermaid, make it simple for kids to create images over 2 feet tall.  Large enough for two at a time to play, the reusable stencil is first painted with Crayola Washable Sidewalk paint to create a design.  Once the outline is dry, it can be colored in and detailed with Crayola Sidewalk chalk.  Kids can be proud of the picture-perfect scene they create and show it off to friends in the neighborhood, at least until the next rain washes it away!  Crayola Giant Sidewalk Stencils come with 1 giant washable stencil, one 8-oz. bottle of Crayola Sidewalk paint, 5 sticks of Crayola Sidewalk chalk, a paint brush and paint tray.

 Who said all sidewalk chalk was created equal?  Crayola’s new Giant Sidewalk Chalk is the Paul Bunyan of chalk, with one tall, chunky stick equaling 7 sticks of standard size sidewalk chalk!  That means it lasts longer than other chalk and lets kids enjoy the fresh air and outdoor fun until the sun sets.  Hopscotch squares for the whole class . . . piece of cake.  Marking off lines to play hoops?  Why stop at one court when you’ve got enough color for a dozen!  The outdoor options are endless with super-size sticks of Crayola Giant Sidewalk Chalk.

The set includes 5 sticks of Crayola Giant Sidewalk chalk, 8-inches each, in bright, bold shades of blue, green, red, orange and yellow.
