Crayola is eliminating a crayon! Guess which one?

Goodbye dandelion yellow!



The yellow Dandelion crayon is being retired from Crayola’s crayon collection, the arts supplies company announced Thursday, a day earlier than expected. The announcement came early thanks to a leak on Twitter.

“Our beloved Dandelion decided to announce his retirement early! There’s no taming an adventurous spirit!” Crayola wrote in a Tweet, which featured a video of an animated Dandelion crayon reflecting on his adventurous “career.” This apparently included speaking many languages, going to space, hang-gliding over the Great Wall of China and sitting on lions.

The Dandelion crayon has been on Crayola’s roster for 27 years and part of the 24-pack for 18.

3. But what is replacing it?

I read the article and the new color is yet to be announced or even named.

4. This is the art of marketing

Two-part announcement. Drag out the big reveal. Keep people talking about your product for as long as possible.

6. The crayon is not as orangey as that image makes it look. I am guessing that is

actually an image of Trump's foundation stick.

7. I notice you didn't express any outrage

Remember, when they came from dandelion yellow, you did not speak up.

When they come for sunflower yellow...

10. Seriously!

Do you want to live in a world with just colored pencils and markers? Would be a tragedy!

It is a nowhere color in the crayon box.
