Stockmar Wax Blocks, made from the same materials and available in identical colors to the stick crayons, have outstanding drawing properties and appeal to the senses. Their size and flat shape mean they sit well in the hand and are specially suited for small children. Children can draw colorful areas easily, and arrive at interesting effects. For example by dragging the long edge of the block in a wave-like fashion across the paper. From the very first "pencil" Stockmar's assortment of unbreakable Wax Blocks grows as you grow. And so too, the artistic possibilities.

Made in Germany
Founded by Hans Stockmar in 1922, first with beekeeping products and beeswax candles, then at the urging of art teachers he developed the modelling beeswax. Over time and with Waldorf teachers, Stockmar created other products, most notably the wax crayon, watercolors and wax decorating sheets.
Today Stockmar products are known around the world for their uncompromised quality and production adherence to high pedagogical, artistic, social and environmental standards. They are regularly subjected to testing by independent laboratories in Germany to insure their safety and purity.
