Crayola Caddy from Crayola (1980s)


Only the luckiest kids on the block had the Crayola Caddy! Crayola’s caddy was a plastic square organizer decked out in the color of a school bus. It rotated on its base, which made it easy-to-use for group art projects. In addition to a removable crayon sharpener, the caddy contained storage for paints, markers, colored pencils, brushes, and crayons.

Remember the toys and games of years past through vintage advertising – for better and for worse!
