Iron Man crayons mini review

Found this set of 12 oversize Iron Man crayons in the dollar rack by the entrance of a Target store in Raleigh, NC. Thought my young nephew Mateo might be able to enjoy them since I noticed he tended to break the thinner Nordstrom crayons with his mighty grip.
These crayons might be thick enough to resist breakage even in the hands of a rambunctious toddler, but they are awfully low in pigment load yielding rather pale sample color swatches. For a buck, they are not a bad deal as a pacifier or short-term distraction. Yet they are unlikely to foster a child's creativity given their poor performance and rather dull color marks.
