This thin, rectangular Japanese crayon box is part of a collection of items that would have been used by a 6th grade schoolgirl in Japan. The box features the words "Maitei Kureon" ("Mighty Crayons") in katakana across the front and again underneath the top lid. A modern, geometric plant is depicted in primary colors set in a blue diamond across a red background on the lid, along with the number of crayons ("18 c.") in the lower left corner and additional Japanese text in the lower right-hand corner. Thin white stripes line the edges of the lid. The inside of the top lid has a yellow background with two blue intersecting lines and what is probably the company logo. Inside the box, there are 18 crayons of varying colors with a label reading "Mighty Crayons" on the shaft. The box has a plain tan cardboard bottom.
