Smell the color / Education

Smell the color
Smell the color

The crayons are designed for the blind children. There is some Braille on the crayons. Each of them smells different even if the same color. Because one color can be expressed by many kinds of smells. For example, there are two red crayons, one smells sweet and the other one smells terrible. When a blind child wants to draw an apple, he will choose the red crayon which smells sweet. This design helps the blind children to feel the color through the smells. Every child have the right to enjoy the colorful world.
