Korean Peel Off Crayons

A few months ago, my kids received this as a gift from a friend who recently traveled to Korea. My daughter absolutely loves them and I like them too as they last longer than regular crayons and are easy to peel. Our friend who grew up in Korea told me that these crayons were quite popular there, so we decided to do some research on getting them for Little Seouls. And sure enough, we saw that almost all of the Korean children's stationary stores sell these adorable peel off crayons. These are now available at Little Seouls for $6.99. Makes a great addition to a gift!

Russell is Korean!

I knew he looked Asian....possibly Korean. According to Chosun Ilbo, the Pixar's animation "Up" modeled Russell after one of their own Korean production artist, Peter Sohn.
