About our Arts & Crafts range

Crayola was founded in the USA in 1903 by cousins Edwin Binney and Harold Smith when they first started selling a box of eight crayons in black, brown, blue, red, purple, orange, yellow, and green. They now make more than one hundred different types of crayons. Plasticine was first made by art teacher William Harbutt from Bath, England in 1897 and commercial product began in 1900, with four colours being available. A product loved by children, artists and is often used in clay animation. Play-Doh was first made in the USA in the 1930s and used as a wallpaper cleaner, after some children started to play with it, it was changed slightly and in the 1950s sold as the Play-Doh we know today.
