Colors are the smiles of nature. Cinquette is a very happy place that is sure to make everyone that passes through leave filled with joy and positive energy! In honor of National Crayon Day (March 31st), check out these 10 facts about secret ingredients, fine art, and how to plan your next vacation around the world’s biggest crayon.

Did you know the smell of crayola crayons is from the ingredient, beef fat, which deliveries  the waxy consistency? Luckily here in Cinquette you can experience a vibrant colorful scene without the smell!

One of their employees was slightly color blind while molding 1.4 billion crayons for the company before retiring!

In 1994 Crayola released a line of food-scented crayons but it was quickly recalled due to parents concerns about children ingesting them. With that being said we also must inform you not to eat the buildings,umbrellas, or boats in this town!

Crayola produces an average of 12 million crayons daily! This is enough to circle the world six times, some just melted due to heat all over this special town!

In 2002 Crayola created the Crayola Crayon Maker, so children could create new crayons from their used “misfit” crayon nubs. It was in the style of an Easy-Bake Oven. Here the small nubs of crayon were just left around for beach and restaurant goers to have a place to sit!

In 1903 the company made the first box that was sold door to door only costing a nickel and contained eight colors!

In October 2003, the Experience unveiled “The World’s Largest Crayon,” a 15-foot-long crayon weighing 1,500 lb as part of its celebration of 100 years of Crayola crayons.

Several beauty bloggers had encouraged crayons as a cheap alternative to expensive make-up. The company had to start a campaign to the general public that they were never tested to be used on skin. All jokes aside Cinquette used PAINT not CRAYON to decorate their town!
