Holiday Gift Guide Day 9 - Gaddy Nipper Crayons Review and Giveaway

Both my girls are big on coloring. To prevent breakage we usually try to buy the crayola twistable crayons. They work great for Kiki but they are long and skinny and hard for my toddler to hold.

We've been looking for good thick, sturdy crayons for awhile, but haven't really been able to find anything. So when Gaddy Nipper Crayons contacted me about including them in my Holiday Gift Guide, I was super excited. If they were as fun as they looked, it would be the perfect gift for little kids.

We got the Lego Maniac Lovers set for boys and girls to review.


My girls loved them!

Each gaddy nipper crayon is made from recycled crayola crayons, so you are sure to get only the best quality.  The lego crayons are thick and sturdy, and they color extremely well.


During the entire coloring session, my girls didn't even break one crayon!

The lego crayons can also be used for more than coloring.  They are not actually legos, so the pieces don't interlock, but they are great for stacking.



And if your little one is not into legos, they have so much more to choose from.  There are cupcakes and letters, choo choo trains, ladybugs. and even Elmo.  They even have a crayon of the month club so your little one can receive a new style every month.

To Buy It - Gaddy Nipper Crayons would be a great gift for any child in your life.  And the crayons range from $2.50 on up, so it's a great gift on any budget.

Gaddy Nipper Crayons is giving away a $10 gift certificate to one of you.
