A look back at 13 bygone and beloved Crayola crayon colors
Lately, it seems there's push to make everything old new again.
Countless classic series are being revived or rebooted. There's talk that The Honeymooners will be revived. Even shows from the 1990s like Full House have been revamped with some of the original cast members.
Monopoly recently jumped in on the trend by having people pick new tokens for the property trading board game. A rubber duck, T-Rex and penguin won the vote and will replace the tried and true wheelbarrow, thimble and leather boot.
Now it's Crayola's turn to mess with a good thing. For National Crayon Day, the company announced its retiring a classic color and replacing it with a new one.
Yesterday, Crayola revealed the unlucky color to get the boot from the box was Dandelion. While the company has retired colors twice before, it's the first time a color has been retired from the box of 24.
As we (not so) eagerly await the arrival of the new crayon color today, let's look back at all the colors we've lost throughout the years.
Crayola has consistently renamed colors throughout its history. After all, "Prussian Blue" became "Midnight Blue" in the 1950s. But in 1990, the company decided to retire eight colors and replace them.
In 2003, as a part of Crayola's centennial, the company decided to retire a few more colors.
Then on Thursday, March 30, for the third time in its history, Crayola retired one more color. It was loved by many.
The company announced earlier today the new color will be a part of the blue family.
What do you think: Should companies should keep retiring older products, or leave everything as is?
