MORE THAN PEACH Crayons: ...so I named them ALL 'skin color' and there's so much more!
Confused why a single crayon was being called “the skin color” crayon and learning it was once named flesh by a brand, Bellen created More than Peach—a revolutionizing & innovative brand of "many beautiful colors" to celebrate brilliance and to “really, actually” grow spaces (after having changed the language in her own classroom and school).
Engineered & inspired by a child’s compassion and wisdom, she creatively decided the shades would be named after natural landmarks and--ALL--called “skin color." The second box, More than Peach Rainbow Crayons, consists of even #more beautiful shades (Think ROY G BIV.)!
NOW ALSO AVAILABLE AT TARGET.COM!!
More than Peach™️ is making an inspiringly positive impact in classrooms everywhere while also taking the art industry by storm. It all began in Spring 2019 by then 8-year-old Bellen because of the need to grow classrooms and an industry—and to get multicultural crayons in the hands of every student. A kind pioneer (and inspiration to many), Bellen single-handedly pioneered this never-before-seen mission and values most that kids hold a More than Peach product and instantly know the power of "KIDHOOD!" Created for all kids...by a kid.
Though Bellen’s tremendous influence has led even the “big brand” to reconsider access, she's proud to have created her very own brand that started that way! (Please note that Bellen is not a partner to the "big brand." Acknowledging her work and influence go hand-in-hand with inclusion and in advancing the larger mission, voice, and dreams of a young visionary; continued thanks to all who have.)
