RELEASE: MARCH 7, 2023
MORE THAN PEACH® SCHOOL SUPPLIES —AUTHENTICALLY & UNIQUELY DESIGNED BY BELLEN - "RESONATING & REPRESENTING LIKE NO OTHER"
More than Peach was born in spring 2019 out of the pressing need to grow access, representation, and perspectives. Whose idea was this and how did the crayons get their names? Meet bright-light Bellen Woodard, Mensan, ballet dancer, professional model, and, now 12-year old, kid!
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 to increase representation and access and has now gone on to transform an entire industry as CEO of More than Peach! But there's still much work to do.
Bellen created More than Peach—the revolutionizing & innovative school-supplies brand of "many beautiful colors" to celebrate kid brilliance and to “really, actually” grow spaces. Using meaningful naming conventions and nuanced tones, the More than Peach packs provide both traditional and "skin-tone" colors designed to foster creativity and conversations.
Engineered & inspired by a child’s compassion and wisdom, see how the More than Peach crayons and brand embody authenticity and inspire like no other.
NOW ALSO AVAILABLE AT TARGET!
Educators, Everyday Heroes.
More than Peach® is a beloved brand of educators--who've always always been among Bellen's favorite people on the planet!

Created for ALL kids--by a kid--to change the world…one crayon at time.

Bellen joins The Female Quotient
"Hmm, challenges I’ve faced as a business owner? Well, I’m 11 so there’s that. But I think the biggest challenge is that assumption you can’t be an industry leader—even when you already are. So it’s up to you to trust yourself and what you deliver because if YOU understand your value, you learn not to accept anything less.”❤️-Bellen
CEO & Pioneer of The More than Peach Project and "Skin Color" Crayons, World's 1st Crayon Activist® & Scholastic Back-to-School Cover Story!
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!
