Best Diverse and Multicultural Crayons for Toddlers and Young Kids
Our children are the future — each and every one, every shape and size, every color and complexion.
“LOVE + RESPECT + ART” with skin shades ranging for every person in this global village, we’ve ranked the best color diverse crayons “For children of all colors, to draw their friends of all colors”. We chose the skin color crayons with the best quality, company reputation, and young child color-ability.
For toddlers 2-4 years / 24-48 months old, get CHUNKY BULKY GRIPPY crayons, especially those crayons with a triangle-shape or square-shape (they’re easy to hold and will stay in place on flat surfaces).

(01) All of Us Crayons Natural Beeswax Skin Tone Coloring Crayons (8 Count)
4 inches long for grabbing and ⅓ inch thick for holding, in seven gorgeous skin tone color from dark to light. If you look closely, you’ll see “YOU ARE PERFECT” written on each and every little crayon. “I love you too, Mr. Crayon!”
Natural beeswax, plant wax, and earth pigments all the way! The caring folks at All of Us brand concocted a crayon wax composition perfectly safe for all ages. Light contact with the mouth is nothing to worry about — but remember please do not eat crayons. (Safe, Safe, Please!)
(02) Crayola “Colors of the World” Standard Skin Tone Children’s Crayon (24 or 8 Count)
If you’re short on time, or don’t care to learn more, then buy Crayola.
Crayola is undoubtedly the world’s most well-known and trusted crayon brand. The world decided it’s time for crayons to celebrate diversity and boost inclusivity. Oh boy did Crayola answer!
Like “tissue paper and Kleenex” are “skin tone crayons and Crayola”. You’ve probably seen them before shopping at Walmart, Target, and other major superstores — prominently displayed on an endcap.
These crayons are new, hot, and progressive. The truth is, we can thank Crayola for bringing skin tone kids’ art supplies to market, and popularizing them.
So… “Thank you, Crayola brand.”
(03) art2theextreme “Diversity Rainbow Stix®” Chunky Square Recycled Kids Crayons
With power words like “GORGEOUS, FABULOUS, and LOVED” imprinted into the surface of each wide-grip toddler crayon — we learn to associate “Differences with Positivity”.
These square Mini Crayon Stix® are 3.5 inches long and ½ inch in diameter. The child-ready square shape, like the more common triangle shape, makes it easy to grip and prevents the crayons from rolling off the table.
Buy just one, or order up to 150 mixed color skin tone crayons for a forward thinking toddler’s birthday party, kid’s classroom lesson, or all ages social event.
(04) Faber-Castell “World Colors” Jumbo Triangular Multicultural Beeswax Crayons (15 Count)
Historic European art supply company Faber-Castell recently introduced a line of children’s crayons to promote world perspective. The 15 piece set of grippy triangular toddler crayons comes with 9 basic colors + 6 skin tones.
The idea is, “we paint the people we see in the world, therefore a crayon set should include all colors of the world.” With soft wax and a bright red sleeve — you’ve got all the colors you need for “Full Color Drawing” — beautiful people, vibrant clothes, and festive scenes.
(05) Sunshine City Colors “Love + Unity” Handmade Heart-Shape Skin Color Crayons Gift Box
Try a heart-shaped crayon for size. <3 When we’re coming together to stand in unity, we stand for LOVE.
Sunshine City Colors is a boutique online shop offering “Unity Heart Crayons” in eight shades of human. 100% non-toxic wax materials hand-poured in the USA — it comes in an eco-friendly kraft paper gift box, thoughtful for all ages.
(06) Colour Me Kids “Roll-Proof + Easy-Grip” Triangle Skin Color Crayons (12 Count)
I like to call it the “Toddler Perfect Triangle Crayon” for ages 3+ years. Made with toxin-free vegan wax, distinctly shaped as a three-point triangle (not rounded “a little triangle-ish”, we’re talking “very triangle” here).
Plus one for color-matching crayon sleeves! (The crayon paper sleeve’s color matches the wax’s color.) That’s unique because other progressive crayon brands have ONLY ONE COLOR SLEEVE. All of Us uses a white sleeve, and Faber-Castel uses a red sleeve — no matter which color crayon.
Colour Me brand cares about self-expression — and offers this 3.5 inch long 12 skin tone shade crayon pack to take you there. Are you with me?
(07) Mudpuppy “We Are Colorful” Skin Tone Crayon Tin Gift Set for Young Kids (18 Count)
Excellent variety of 18 unique skin shades age-appropriate for toddlers 36 months and up.
Parents love how easily it stores away in the “Kiddos Across the World” engaging gift tin. The tin is 4” inches tall and just 2” inches wide — so truth be told — these are not the “chunky, bulky, blocky, gummy” type of crayons I’d typically recommend for early years.
Great as a party favor or gift for a special friend — but not the best if I’m thinking about my toddler’s development.
(08) LIQUIMARK “Global Colors” Budget-Friendly School Quality Children’s Crayons (24 Count)
Let’s talk about the crayon industry for five seconds. In North America, it’s Crayola as the quality standard and Cra-Z-Art as an affordable standard, and LIQUIMARK as the lowest cost standard (in my opinion).
The 24 Pack is a good pick for daycares and small preschools where “broken crayons” are a daily affair. The rugrats use the crayons, and your budget goes far. For my own household, I’d choose Crayola instead.
(09) My Muse “Spell Your Name” Custom Marbled Skin Tone Letter Crayons Kids Personalized Gift
A top choice for an extra-special gift made to order, with your child’s name spelled letter-by-capital-letter. Hey — make it a FAMILY THANG and put your last name under the tree, with the menorah, or with the Kwanzaa celebration.
You bet it comes in a precious little gift box to fit the full length of your PRIDE LETTERS (your name).
(10) Honeysticks “Made in New Zealand” Earth Tone 100% Pure Beeswax Baby-Safe Crayons
Babies 1+ years / 12+ months play with friends, watch cartoons, and watch cartoons with friends. We’ve got blue, orange, red cartoon characters in the same play zone as brown, black, and white little people. Let’s see how far we can stretch our imaginations.
Honeysticks brand offers’s some of the BEST BABY CRAYONS — with pure beeswax and non of the icky stuff, “Short Stack” crayons for early fine motor skills. No, they’re not particularly “skin tone”, but I’m seeing these night blues, rose pinks, crimson pigments. I say let some more color!
In your skin. In my skin. We are skin. We are earth.
(11) ColorMeTru Multicultural “Lil Human / Multicultural Kids” Skin Tone People-Shaped Mini Crayons Box Set
Hey now that’s a hip idea?! Little crayon people in a gift box set — perfect for open minded people of all ages (3+ years old and fun for lit adults too.) They’re only 1 ¾ inches tall, so too small for the youngest family members.
If you loved the heart-shape crayons, take a peak at these “People Shape Skin Tone Crayons”.
