Feeling blue? So is Crayola..
The crayon giant has just announced the name of a brand new blue crayon. In an online contest, ‘Bluetiful’ beat out four other names with 40% of the vote. Here’s what the shade looks like….
Not everyone is happy with ‘Bluetiful’ though. Critics online say the name will teach children a “nonword”. In fact, the announcement caused some colorful debate on Twitter, with one user writing, “Of thousands Eng & foreign words for a new blue hue, @Crayola mangles real word, fails at teaching kids color name AND spelling.”
I kinda think the name is catchy…even IF the color isn’t necessarily original. What do you think? ~ Jason
