Hand poured crayons made from all natural waxes. Made from scratch and with love.

Hi and welcome!

My name is Tess and I am the head creator at Funny Little Things. I create natural crayons from scratch to inspire imagination, fun and learning in kids at any age.

A few years ago, I was alarmed to discover that most commercial crayons are made from paraffin, a by-product of petroleum and that recent studies have shown that some commercial crayons have tested positive for nasties like asbestos. Not only was it scary to think of young children potentially ingesting these, but I also was concerned about the environmental impact. So I set about working on developing a formula for crayons using all natural, sustainably sourced waxes and non-toxic pigments. I have continued to refine my formula through trial and error and product testing and I am so pleased with my product – a safe, natural crayon that produces vibrant hues, is hardy in warm little hands and has minimal environmental impact.

“They are adorable. Better than pictured. Fantastic, warm, friendly to deal with. Turnaround time was super quick. Thank you so much. Will definitely purchase again :)” – Justine, 2015.

Childhood should be all about play and having fun. Funny Little Things’ crayons come in a range of fun shapes and sizes to inspire imagination and play. I love seeing the joy on children’s faces when they discover the butterfly or dinosaur they hold in their hand is actually a crayon! Through play also comes learning and my crayons are a great secret weapon to help kids learn shapes, colours, creative thinking and even the letters and sounds of their name.

A little more about me. I’m a shortie, only about 5 foot 2” (I’ve always wished for a few extra inches!) My husband on the other hand is 6 foot 4” and has always endearingly called me ‘funny little thing’. I thought this would be a good name for my crayons once I started making them as they are bright and fun little things designed to add joy!

I love putting together something a little extra special so custom orders for gifts or party favour packs are more than welcome! If you don’t see a crayon shape you’re interested in, please ask as I can create crayons to suit just about any theme.

“If only customer service was this good everywhere! The communication was excellent, and the products DEVINE! Will definitely be back to shop with you again! Your creations will no doubt be a hit at my daughter's party! Fantastic party favour idea!” – Poppy, 2015.

I'd love you to follow Funny Little Things on Instagram or Facebook to learn more about my creations and special offers:

Thank you for stopping by, hope you enjoy looking through my range. If you have any questions, please feel free to ask xx
