The Crayola crayon colors and the names they pick influence generations of children. This section has content direct from the source (Crayola.com) as well as data from actual packs of Crayola crayons. See also Crayola [W] (I added the two tables on Crayola colors in historical and alphabetical order).

Packs

PHOTO: Crayola crayons 24 packCrayola crayon packs come in multiples of eight: 8, 16, 24, 32, (40), 48, (56), 64, 72, 80, (88), 96, (104), (112), and 120 packs. The 120 pack is sometimes a package composed of two 48 pack containers and a 16 pack container. The most important Crayola crayon colors are the ones that come in the smaller packs since these are most prevalent.

Here are the colors in the 8, 16, and 24 packs as of 2005:
