Kitty Baby Love Crayons Are Purr-fect for Little Hands

In 2009, the couple found a box of old crayons and embarked on a mission to turn them into something their newborn son Mikah could grab on his own. It took them a year to perfect their design, but now the once-unemployed pair run their business from home, making their adorable kitty crayons by hand by re-melting Crayola crayons. They're developing a new eco-blend of soy and beeswax crayons, which they hope to launch by Christmas.
Because of their shape, these cuties last longer than regular crayons – and they're more earth-friendly because there isn't any wrapping paper to throw away. Kitty Baby Love crayons are such a success – "We hardly have time to do anything else," Chun tells PEOPLEPets.com – that the couple now makes meow-worthy greeting cards and candles for big kids, too.
