At this time, we have kept the Crayola Inspiration as the pick that’s hard to top. It’s worth noting that the case can’t handle a lot of abuse, although to be fair, this is a common issue with art sets for the younger crowd. Nevertheless, it’s tough to beat the number of supplies you’ll receive for the price, and these embody the quality that creative spirits, young and old, expect from Crayola products, from markers to crayons. We also still like the Lucky Crown 58, even though it doesn’t offer as wide a range of colors as many others. It does come with an artist’s mannequin, however, a nice bonus for those youngsters who have more than just a casual interest in drawing.
We also decided to keep one craft kit, the Alex Giant Busy Box, for kids who aren’t interested in just plain drawing. The directions that come with it are not very thorough, so you might want to look over them by yourself before you sit the kids down to start creating.
