More than just a pretty tail, this desktop peacock actually offers a new way to color. His fan is made up of five brightly colored crayons, but it's their shape that's so interesting; the tail feathers are three-quarters of an inch thick, with a sharp point at each end that gives you a broad wedge for coloring. You can cover wide areas quickly, then turn the feather sideways to get into tight corners, while the molded details make these chunky crayons easy to hold and control. The friendly plastic peacock measures 5¼ inches wide and sits solidly on the desk, while the crayons slip easily out and back in. Not recommended for children under 3.
