MORE THAN PEACH® CRAYONS —CREATED BY THE PIONEERING 8y/o IN 2019 TO CHANGE AN INDUSTRY!
More than Peach was born in spring 2019 out of the pressing need to grow perspectives. Whose idea was this and how did the crayons get their names?
Once upon a time and for many years, a single crayon was named and called “flesh" and more recently "the skin-color" crayon. That was until then 8-year old Bellen managed to change the language with an
empathetic response with each child in mind! She developed both an innovative
new product AND a solution and has now gone
on to transform an entire industry as CEO of More than Peach!
Bellen created More than Peach—a revolutionizing & innovative art brand of "many beautiful colors" to celebrate kid brilliance and to “really, actually” grow spaces.
Engineered & inspired by a child’s compassion and wisdom, see how More than Peach crayons and brand embody authenticity and inspire like no other. See the products pages to learn more!
NOW ALSO AVAILABLE AT TARGET.COM!!
More than Peach® is making an inspiringly positive impact in classrooms everywhere. 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 art product and instantly know the power of "KIDHOOD!" Created
for all kids...by a kid.
Continued thanks to so many of you for being the change and continuing to help amplify authentic voices! (Please note that the young visionary is not a partner to the "big brand" though her influence--sadly, without credit-- is unmistakable.)

Microsoft Legacy Project Honoree 2022

"In honor of Black History Month, we are honoring legends leaving legacies. The mission of the Legacy Project is to provide a platform where Black narratives are uplifted so the world can hear and see how Black History has revolutionized the way we live." -Microsoft
CEO and Pioneer of The More than Peach Project and "Skin Color" Crayons, World's 1st Crayon Activist™, and Scholastic Back-to-School Cover Story!
Meet the now 10-year-old girl who has gotten people to finally stop thinking of the peach skin-colored crayon as the ‘skin-color’ crayon. Understanding what colors make peach shows it takes more than one "skin tone crayon" to make the color peach. Bellen's inclusive crayons show how to be welcoming to everyone. Sparking an international movement, she’s inspired many and her crayons have become part of the fabric of a nation (and even held at the Virginia Museum of History and Culture)! #MoreThanPeach is about #MoreThanCrayons!
