SUPERB OIL PASTELS FOR YOUR KIDS WHO LOVE TO COLOUR. WATCH OUT FOR DEALS THOUGH.
18 August 2015
I buy quite a few of these every other month, thanks to some one who loves to colour, draw and finish a stock of A4 sheets every month.
If you are buying this for your kid, here's some stuff I hope will help you.
1. This series of pastels of 50 shades is available without a plastic box as well, which is cheaper. The box in itself is not very sturdy, so it will break if you drop it hard enough.
2. If you want lesser shades look at the 25 shades box, which is cheaper by 50%.
3. For even smaller kids, there is a jumbo series, which has bigger and thicker oil pastels, which makes it easier for them to hold.
4. Oil pastels unlike wax crayons cannot be rubbed out with an eraser, so keep that in mind if you are buying for kid who is starting out. Also, oil pastels are hard to get off from the walls unlike wax crayons.
5. You would often find these on deal prices, which are between 30-50% discounted from MRP. So, keep a look out for those deals.
6. It comes with a scratch tool, which is fun to use.
Faber Castell also has a similar pack of 50 shades, which is also a good option to buy and consider. Having used both Camel and Faber, I find both to be equally good; Faber seems to be slightly more resistant to breakage.
Hope that helps.
