Inntrax Twig Crayons are certified non-toxic, and handmade in Poland from from discarded twigs. They’ve got a cool backstory about being made from cleared underbrush and salvaged from certain demise in planned brushfires, but no matter. They’re just plain cool looking.Plus the set of eight colorful crayons comes in a funky birch basket. Sure it has no built-in sharpener, but does that thing ever really work anyway? They’re only 20 bucks at eco-friendly online mecca, Our Greenhouse.(PS If you’ve got a lot of money to blow on your best friend’s kid’s upcoming birthday, there’s a super-looking set of 60 available for $150 at Vivre. Who needs to eat anyway?) –Liz[via daddytypes]Crayolas Schmayolas. The coolest crayons are rough-hewn, organic and free from political bs (like calling a peachy-tan color, "flesh").
Hi! We’re Kristen + Liz!
We started Cool Mom Picks in 2006 to help make life cooler, easier, more organized, more meaningful, and more fun for parents of all kinds.
Trivia: It was called Cool Mom Sh*t for the first two days. (Yeah, we rethought that.)
We had no idea our site would grow to become a major lifestyle network, that we'd end up sharing our finds with the TODAY Show and Martha Stewart, that we'd be able to make a real difference for so many small businesses and women-run companies, or that we'd end up with an incredible community of the coolest readers on the planet. (If we do say so ourselves).
But we did.
And we still love what we do every single day.
We're so glad you're here.
