Honeysticks were developed by a New Zealand preschool teacher who was looking for safe and natural crayons for her pupils. Realising that her only option was to import paraffin wax filled non-toxic crayons, the idea for Honeysticks was born. Honeysticks is a New Zealand owned and operated company.
Honeysticks beeswax crayons are handmade from 100% pure New Zealand beeswax with non-toxic pigments. They contain no paraffin wax or cheap fillers and they are one of the only (if not the only) crayon on the market that is made with 100% beeswax.
The beeswax to create Honeysticks is a natural by-product of honey production. The sustainable process causes minimal impact on the environment and gives the crayons a wonderful and unique scent of honey.
The unique chubby shape of Honeysticks makes them easier for small hands to hold, but much more difficult for small hands to break! Honeysticks have been tested in preschools and the kids have tried to break them but they just can't. Plus they love the smell!.
Honeysticks are compliant with all relevant Australasian and North American safety standards.
