1370009579000-crayola-1305311014_3_4_r537_c0-0-534-712For more than a century, Crayola crayons have been a childhood staple.

This year the company is celebrating the 110th anniversary of its signature eight-crayon box. It just released a limited-edition tribute to the original packaging, which we can purchase for $4.99 on Facebook – Just go to Facebook.com/Crayola

The box looks almost exactly the same as the one from 1903 (pictured), although color names have been updated with cute nicknames from Crayola fans: For example, red is now “Ladybug,” and yellow has been dubbed “Sunny Side Up.”
