  1. Cool! I really wanted to be able to hover over a color and have it tell me the name of that crayon! And it would be nice to see a counter at the bottom of each year column indicating the number of crayons represented.
    I recall that every year or so we would get a new box of 64 crayons. I would kept the old worn down but still usable crayons in the old boxes and see how much the cost increased over the years – at least until they stopped putting price stickers on everything!
