No way! It's like the Sesame Street crayon factory from 1979 compressed and at your fingertips! It's time to melt old, broke-down crayons into new, perfectly-shaped mini crayons in dazzling swirled hues. More importantly, it's time to marry stuffy, traditional Roy G Biv varietals, and create a more diverse next generation of art project staples. Black and white mixes are the obvious risque choice, though white and yellow, as well as the enticingly exotic black and yellow, have seen a steep rise in popularity over the years. Though still rare as a pairing, go with brown and yellow if you're hoping to employ your crayon in a medical or engineering field, or add a splash of red to earn the instant favor of Ivy League college and grad school admissions committees. Tan is also a delightful choice, provided you don't expect it to stay within the lines. Whatever your mix-and-match selection, the spectral visionaries at Crayola would like to remind us that writing utensils of all colors truly can mingle, work together, and produce attractive offspring.

The crayon maker is powered by a 60-watt lightbulb and fitted with a clear plastic cover, so dump in your ragged favorites and, 10 minutes later, watch little melting pots emerge in their pre-cast flexible molds, stronger and better than ever. Just like in the Sarcophagus in Stargate and the wax healing bath in Wanted.
