Do you offer helpful tips for using the Crayola Colour Explosion Glow Dome
If the lights and/or spinning features are not operating as expected, the following reset tips are often successful. 1. Check to be sure the batteries are installed properly. Reactivate the unit by sliding the black on/off switch on the underside of the base. The “on” position is indicated by a straight line and may need to be reset by turning it off and back on twice. 2. Remove the center drawing surface, which must be in place for the center lights to work, and firmly push it back into place. 3. Check the red gear ring on the plastic dome to be sure it is flush against the lip. Place the lid on the base. 4. Activate the light feature by moving the silver slider switch to the right. Activate the dome rotation by pressing the silver button. See product instructions for additional details. Additional tips: 5. Glow Dome Markers are attached to the cardboard packing located at the bottom of the Glow Dome box. Opening the box from the bottom should assist in locating the markers. 6.

In 1900, prior to the introduction of Crayola Crayons, we produced black marking crayons. Today these are known as Staonal brand Marking Crayons and are used in many industrial settings. These crayons were created with dry carbon black and different waxes. The first box of Crayola Crayons was produced in 1903 as an 8 count box. It sold for a nickel and contained the colours red, orange, yellow, green, blue, violet, brown and black. We provide extensive information about Crayola and our products on our sites. A history timeline can be found on the Crayola.com web site at our history.
In 1903, we introduced the first box of 8 Crayola Crayons and sold them for a nickel. Included were the same 8 colours that are found in an 8‑pack today: red yellow blue green orange brown violet (purple) black.
In 1958 the box of 64 CRAYOLA Crayons was introduced. It was the first package to include a built-in sharpener design. We continue to manufacture this package design today in the 64 and 96 count Crayola Crayon package.
In 1993 we conducted a poll to find out the most popular colours in America. Blue was voted the most popular CRAYOLA Crayon colour. Rounding the top ten were red, violet, green, carnation pink, black, turquoise blue, blue green, periwinkle and magenta. In 2000, we did another Crayola Colour Census, and blue again reigns as number one!
