The Wax Blocks which are made from the same materials and available in identical colours to the crayons have outstanding drawing properties and appeal to the senses. Their size and flat shape mean they sit well in the hand and are specially suited for small children. What is more children can draw colourful areas easily and arrive at interesting effects. For example by dragging the long edge of the block in a wave-like fashion across the paper. From the very first "pencil" Stockmar's assortment of unbreakable Wax Blocks grows as you grow. And so too the artistic possibilities.
