Why STOCKMAR Crayons? Because Children are Artists ...

STOCKMAR wax crayons can awaken the artist in every young child. Developed in collaboration with Waldorf teachers and art teachers more than 50 years ago, they journey and guide our children from the very first drawing pleasure at home, kindergarten and school.

STOCKMAR are unique and unmatched in their harmonious, strong, and at the same time, transparent colours - meaning layering allows the light and pigment of lower colours to shine through, with no colour smearing.

STOCKMAR Crayons are manufactured with no added fillers and have a particularly large amount of colour pigment; their full luminosity is achieved through the mix of pigments and waxes, and made transparent with just the right amount of beeswax.

The scent of beeswax and the excellent drawing properties add to their appeal. Opaque or translucent through layers, scraped or melted, the creative imagination is inspired, and knows no limits. Read more ...

STOCKMAR Block Crayons and Stick Crayons - the Difference ...

STOCKMAR Block Crayons, ideal for big movements in little hands. In bigger hands, the Block Crayons can be used in many drawing and colouring techniques, including landscapes and to fill large areas. Full of possibility to create different interesting effects. Recommended from 3 years old, right through adult-hood!

STOCKMAR Stick Crayons allow for more control over smaller areas. This makes the ideal age to introduce them, is when the child begins to form letters and words. Not as harsh as a pencil, the STOCKMAR Stick Crayon is still warm to the touch, and has a softness as it is applied to the paper. Perfect as a transition from big movements with the Block Crayon, and before the pencil is introduced. Recommended from the introduction of letters, and for finer crayon work. Read more ...

Sensory experience with STOCKMAR Crayons ...

STOCKMAR crayons are recommended for all ages from 3 years.

During the early years of childhood, and into the primary years, children are developing their physical bodies, and at the same time, fine-tuning their senses as the border through which they meet the world around them.

One of the keystones of STOCKMAR is to support and promote healthy sensory perception. This is a consideration in every STOCKMAR decision, surrounding design, choice of ingredients and the resulting quality of every STOCKMAR product.

STOCKMAR Crayons, promote the sense of sight through the harmonious coordinated colour range (based on Goethe’s colour wheel) - each colour seamlessly and harmoniously flows to the next.

The sense of smell is nurtured through the pleasant scent of beeswax, unmasked by fillers nor overpowered by other strong waxes.

The transparency of the colours appeals to the breathing in and out of emotions, each gently mixing and giving way to the other, without strong statements.

The sense of touch is gently stimulated by the pleasant texture and the ergonomic shape - first the block crayon with its definite form and sharp edges, and then the more subtle roundness of the stick crayon. Each stick crayong is covered in their own paper covering, giving sensitive children a familiar and comfortable experience, with no transference of waxey properties to the fingers.

And we must remember the creative act of drawing itself, supporting the development of fine-motor skills, balance and movement, and helping to train the subtle sense of differentiation through shading and colour gradients.

All these senses go on to be the foundation through which the child meets the world. It makes sense to nurture them from the beginning, and for over 100 years, STOCKMAR has thought so too! Read more ...

Beeswax - the not so Secret STOCKMAR Ingredient ...

It is no secret that the special ingredient in STOCKMAR crayons is Beeswax - just smell it and you will understand!

What may not be known is why STOCKMAR use just 10% beeswax and no more? As well as the aroma of beeswax, and the warmth to the touch, beeswax is what gives the STOCKMAR crayons their special luminosity and transparency, and ability for creative and individual expression.

Using too much beeswax and the crayon becomes too soft and will 'strick off softly'. This simply means too much beeswax and the crayon is too easy to draw with, making individual expression difficult. A crayon that is too hard has the opposite effect and any expression is difficult. STOCKMAR have found the exact mix of beeswax, other waxes and pigment, with no additional fillers, gives just the right balance, allowing for light feathery to strong colourful shading, as an expression of individuality and natural creativity.

And never forgetting the bees, the beeswax in STOCKMAR Crayons are made from beeswax supplied by beekeepers in the north of Germany, who practice ethical, sustainable bee-keeping. Beeswax is valued as a gift from the bees, and as with all STOCKMAR products just enough is used, and never too much! Read more ...

Amazingly vibrant, but watch out for dirty hands!

These crayons are hands down the best I have ever bought, they’re smooth like butter and the colour vibrancy is out of this world. But a warning to fellow Australians - keep an eye out for crayon covered hands as these have the tendency to transfer colour, in particular during our hot summers.

I wholeheartedly recommend these for anyone who is keen on art and quality, but even so I struggle to give this product more than 4 stars (the high cost of some children’s crayons is too difficult to ignore)

Perfect for little hands

The Stockmar block crayons have been an amazing addition. My little one not only likes colouring but enjoys stacking them as bricks and putting them away in the TFJ holder. The colouring is amazing, perfect for shading. Just don’t leave them in direct sunlight, I learn the hard way when I forgot to put them away of the art table.

Lovely quality

My daughter requested these as she is a Steiner teacher who only uses quality, beautiful products. They also arrived nicely boxed & without delay.

Lidia Grigorian
So much crafting possibility

These crayons are just as bright and durable as they promise to be with the added magic of unlocking more creative possibility unlike that of the traditional single point stick crayons.

By having three different sides, these little beauties unlock the potential for marking the paper in different ways allowing for shading, filling, tracing and outlining. BRILLIANTLY fun to explore with little ones.
The sterdy case makes them a perfect companion for outtings and adventures - quite literally thrown into my handbag.
I think these will be the gift that will keep giving :)
Very pleased indeed.

I have purchased the Stockmar sticks and blocks for my grandchildren. The smell and colours are beautiful. My granddaughter chooses to use these each time over the other named crayons we also have.

Kelsey Taggart

These are by far the best crayons. The colours are beautiful and vibrant, and they are great for little hands. My 3 young kids just love using them. I would highly recommend these!


I had these crayons as a child - I got these ones for my 3yo and he loves them. My 7yo was jealous so we have just got another set for him. They are great for little hands, the colours are really pigmented but you can also use them lightly, they won’t break easily which is such a nice change from other crayons, I don’t worry so much about my 3yo dropping them or snapping them because they’re so sturdy. The tin is cute and my son loves to put them away when he’s done drawing. Really good for making impressions (like with leaves and coins etc)
