Garden Insect Beeswax Crayons
There’s a whole other world down in Tinta’s back garden.
Green snails, purple caterpillars and red ladybirds – a happy home for garden critters. Spot the orange bee and yellow butterflies flying around the flowers and landing on the blue-green leaves.
Tinta Crayons was established in Melbourne in 2015 by Maria Fletcher and Maria Porto. As mums of young children, they knew crayons were often chewed or put in kids’ mouths but a safe alternative, free of toxic substances, was hard to find. The solution? They made it themselves!
After many hours of research and testing, Tinta Crayons has created the perfect mix to produce natural, organic and sustainable crayons. Free from palm, soy and paraffin waxes (a by-product of petroleum) and pigments that are free from heavy metals, asbestos and other toxic substances, Tinta Crayons are safe, eco-friendly and they smell nice too!
Perfect for little hands, Tinta Crayons are designed to help develop fine motor skills
and support learning. From petals and robots to dinosaurs and personalised name
crayons, there’s a unique shape for everyone and ready to help bring ideas to life!
Tinta Crayons love to support local suppliers and source all our 100% recyclable
packaging from within Australia. We pride ourselves on every client having a great
experience – easy ordering, fast delivery and a high-quality product that kids will use
again and again.
After nearly 5 years, we continue to make each crayon from scratch, hand-poured
and packed in Melbourne… with love.
