Crayola boots dandelion for bluish crayon yet to be named

If they really have retired Dandelion, will they announce a new replacement color?

Right now, it's unclear why Dandelion's announcement came a day early; the countdown clock to the big Friday announcement was still on Crayola's website at 3:30 p.m. ET on Thursday.

We already knew dandelion had gotten booted out of Crayola's colorful 24-count box, but now we know another blue is taking that yellow hue's place. Remaining yellow colors include yellow orange, yellow and yellow green.

In 1990, old fogies Blue Gray, Green Blue, Lemon Yellow, Maize, Orange Red, Orange Yellow, Raw Umber, and Violet Blue were sent out to waxy pastures. We were told it will be in the blue family, and that fans will help name the color this summer.

One mom wrote, "My son is crushed you retire colors".

Arab summit to endorse Palestinian positions with eye on US
A photo handout by the Egyptian delegation showed the two leaders sitting next to each other in white overstuffed chairs. The Palestinians want these areas - along with the Gaza Strip - for the a future Palestinian state.

The first 100 kids to enter Crayola Experience, Friday through Sunday, will receive a free dandelion crayon.

The leaked box also reveals that a new color - that fans will have a part in naming - will replace the dearly departed Dandelion. The crayon color was always a good one to whip out when you wanted to draw a really good sun or color in Belle's dress in a Beauty & the Beast coloring book.

Originally, Crayola opted to broadcast which colour it is scrapping in celebration of the National Crayon Day later on Friday.

In 2003, Crayola had a "Save the Shade" contest, where voters held onto "burnt sienna" but said goodbye to blizzard blue, magic mint, teal blue and mulberry. Crayola is all about innovating with color so consumers can expect that there will be a new, exciting color coming soon!
