  • Crayola Crayons were invented by cousins Edwin Binney and C. Harold Smith. Binney's wife Alice coined the word "Crayola" by combining the French word for chalk (craie) and the "ola" part of "oleaginous" (oily).

    The first box of Binney & Smith crayons, produced in 1903, sold for a nickel and contained eight colors: red, orange, yellow, green, blue, violet, brown, and black. While it was widely known that the 8 count box was the box they initially sold their crayons in, they carried a full line of boxes in different sizes and colors for many uses.
