I know this is old, but I would say that Crayola is less toxic than anything else you put into your body, or on it. Crayons are meant to be used by kids, not that they are meant to be eaten by kids, but I think it's fair to say that the majority of us have eaten at least one crayon when we were a kid (my daughter ate two... those were interesting diapers...). Crayola has been around for 130 years (since 1885), and I am sure in the beginning the ingredients weren't always the safest, but there has been 130 years to perfect the recipe. Whereas Matel has only been around since 1945, and Fisherprice has been around since 1930. And their toys weren't expected to be in the mouths of teething kids. Especially cars painted with lead based paints.Of course then once you become an adult you add in alcohol, prescription drugs, tobacco, chemicals in the makeup that you wear, the hair products used, etc... yeah, Crayola crayons might be the safest thing we have put in/on our bodies in our entire lives...
