Crayola 64 Box

I recently discovered what is perhaps the most fun online quiz ever. The Crayola 64 box has been around for 50 years and the nice marketing people have created fun games and other celebratory distractions on their website. My favorite is the "Color Quizzer" which can be found here. I am proud to announce that I named all 64 and am a "certified color genius" although the row of "kids choice" colors tripped me up. I clearly haven't colored or purchased a box of crayons since the kids renamed those few crayons. Rest assured, most of the names remain classic. Does anyone else remember Salmon or Burnt Sienna?

Crayola crayons are perhaps the greatest thing since sliced bread! Particularly the box with the sharpener on the back! Although as a child I could never share my crayons because no other child was as concerned with placing them back in rainbow color order! Freaks!

Wow look at all those exclamation points. Your post really got me excited.

I'm surprisingly bad at this. I missed 22 of the 64....I mean, hello, "macaroni and cheese" and "purple mountain's majesty"? There is no way that those were in the 64 box.

Anyway, it pronounced me a Certified Color Genius too, even with only a 65% correct response rate.

Hannah you're in good company I missed exactly 22 as well. Bummer.
