Crayola just announced that they are releasing Colors of the World crayons that will include a box of 24 new colors to represent over 40 global skin tones.
The new collection includes markers and colored pencils. There is a range from very light, to very light golden, to extra almond, to very dark that can all be used to make over three dozen skin tones.
The description reads "The subtle shades inside are formulated to better represent the growing diversity worldwide. Colors of the World fall into three main shades: Almond, Golden, and Rose — and all the darker or lighter shades in between. I have spent my life trying to create truly global shade palettes because I know what it’s like to be with a person who has finally found their exact match. They feel included and recognized, and I am hoping every child who uses these crayons and finds their shade will have that feeling."
