For the first time ever, Crayola Crayon is "retiring" one of their colors.


You’re about to have one less choice when you color.  That’s because one Crayola crayon will no longer call the 24-count box of crayons “home.”  Executives at Crayola have announced one of its colors will be “retired.”

No one’s hinting which color that might be, or if it will be replaced.  And if you’re a Crayola fan, you can get the word from them personally – as the retirement announcement will be made via Facebook Friday morning at 8:15 a.m. ET in Times Square.  Ironically, Friday is also National Crayon Day.

  • What colors are up for grabs? At present, the box of 24 has red, yellow, blue, brown, orange, green, violet, black, carnation pink, yellow orange, blue green, red violet, red orange, yellow green, blue violet, white, violet red, dandelion, cerulean, apricot, scarlet, green yellow, indigo and gray.
