Well worth the price!
May 3, 2016
This chalk is perfect for the price. Currently listed in the $5-8 price point, I think it is very fairly priced. Here are some observations:
-Chalk arrived in a box with the pieces shrink wrapped in groups of 5, sorted by color (so 12 different colors).
-Other reviewers have noted that they thought they were getting 60 different colors. Do you really need 60 different colors of chalk? What would those colors even be? It's sidewalk chalk- you really wouldn't be able to see the subtle differences between 10 shades of green anyway.
-I love that there are only 12 colors- it means I can set out one of each color and then as they are used up/ broken/ left in the rain I can replace whichever ones are needed. The only thing I would have changed would be to not shrink wrap them by color because I ended up having to open all the little packets. Just a nit-picky thought but definitely not enough to dock a star.
-None of my pieces arrived broken as some other reviews have noted
-Colors are fine- I really didn't notice that much of a difference between these and more expensive brands.
Overall, if you are buying this for the kids to play around with you will be happy. There is enough chalk to keep them busy for a while and it is at a price point that you won't care if you run over a few pieces (oops). If you are looking for professional quality chalk- I would recommend looking in the "art supplies" section of Amazon.
