Gaddy Nipper Crayons Review & GIVEAWAY!

I have been a “liker” of Gaddy Nipper Crayons on Facebook for sometime now, and I don’t even remember how I came to find them (gotta LOVE social networking)! During that time, I have been oogling over every single new product post that Nichole has made.

Gaddy Nipper Crayons specialize in… you got it, CRAYONS! And, they were kind enough to send this set of 5 Elmo crayons!

My girls were super excited when these arrived and asked to use them right away. The Elmo-likeness was incredible. I mean, they ARE crayons after all!

Miss A, Miss H and Little S all had a great time using the crayons. I was initially concerned that Little S may not be able to hold them well enough to colour (due merely to their shape), but I was wrong. She had no problems getting started and in fact didn’t want to stop!

The crayons color smoothly and that’s because they are made from upcycled Crayola crayons! Talk about doing your part to recycle!

Gaddy Niper Crayons offer a LARGE selection of hand-poured, quality, non-toxic, unique crayons. Looking for that perfect loot bag item – one that wont be broken or tossed within minutes of being opened? Check out these super cool options…


All Gaddy Nipper Crayons are reasonably priced and would make great gifts for any aspiring artist. What little girl or boy wouldn’t love their name spelled in crayons?!

Or maybe these lego brick crayons that are actually stackable?

Nichole at Gaddy Nipper Crayons has generously offered one lucky reader their own set of 5 Elmo crayons! Your kiddies (and their imaginations) will thank you!

BUY IT!

Head on over to Gaddy Nipper Crayons' Etsy shop and pick up some super cute, super functional crayons for a little person in your life!

WIN IT!

CLOSED

Win this set of 5 hand-poured, non-toxic Elmo crayons (just like the ones we tested out)!

Ahhhh! You are right! It IS hard to choose a fave!!!

I love the "cute as a cupcake" set as well as "Farm Yard Fun" for my Little One. My best friend's daughter just LOVES Elmo, so I'm thinking that if I don't win the contest, I'm just going to have to buy the Elmo crayons anyway! LOL! :)

Thanks for another cool giveaway!
