Dotted Crayons / crayons

Dotted Crayons
Dotted Crayons

Most children use their crayons to draw by themselves, and there is little interaction between them as a result. This design subverts by combining the concept that each crayon can be fractured into several short ones depending on the number of children to share with. The nicks on each crayon make children fracture it intuitively. Thereby, more than one kid could share one box of crayons.

Nowadays, due to the impacts of the declining birthrate, children have less chance to interact with others. Through this design, we hope to create an opportunity for them to interact with each other and make them learn how to work with others.
