Pigment manufacturers Binney & Smith introduced Crayola crayons in 1903.
Priced at just 5 cents, the original eight-pack contained the same assortment offered today.
A more elaborate 28-pack "for young artists" included hues analogous to paint pigments, such as Van Dyke Brown, Madder Lake and English Vermilion, plus Umber and Sienna both Burnt and Raw, and dreamy Celestial Blue.
The name Crayola came from the French word for "chalk" and the Latin for "oily."

They just came out with a new shade of blue recently. I wonder how they decide on which colors to keep and which to pitch.

I remember the first of school and Christmas, always wanting the big 64 pack with the sharpener in the back. And I always ended up with the cheapos that never had the coverage that Crayolas had.
