I’m Protesting Crayola’s Oust of Dandelion With A Gallery of My Kids’ Art That Was Created With Anything But Crayons
Crayola announced in a Thursday tweet that the crayon known as Dandelion in its 24-count box is being replaced. Crayola referred to Dandelion's exit as a retirement but I'm most certain that he is not being plucked from the colorful field of his own free will.
Nevertheless, Fox News reported a replacement would be announced on Friday morning in Times Square. But Crayola is apparently taking us on a ride, giving only a hint as to what the new color will be -- that it is a member of the blue family.
Replacing yellow with blue? What? Come on! Replacing a happy color with a color that doesn't just represent sadness, but is the actual word that some people use to describe a morose feeling?!?
Kids' pictures may never be the same. I mean, tell me -- what will they use to color the sun??!! Plain old yellow?!?
Today is National Crayon Day, so here's a quick gallery of my kids' work. In protest, none were created using crayons. Hmph.
