Crayola extends brand equity to foaming hand soap

A defining shape, a distinctive character and “play value”—along with the instant name recognition of Crayola, give Crayola licensee Schroeder & Tremayne instant recognition in the hot kids’ foaming hand soap category with Crayola Squeeze & Squirt Foaming Hand Soap.

Pw 11433 Squirt

In creating the brand communication, Berlin Packaging’s Studio One Eleven design agency discovered that Crayola owned both the Squeeze & Squirt name and “Tip,” an animated character. But Tip seldom had been used.

Packaging design incorporates Tip into the bottle structure as well as the full-body PVC shrink-sleeve label. The 6-oz PET bottle is shaped like a crayon with a cylindrical body and tapered top. Tiny arms and feet are embossed into the mold of Tip’s “body.”

A squeeze foamer from Emsar crowns the container. It resembles the head of a crayon and supports the product’s namesake “squeeze-and-squirt” capability.

The dispenser allows kids to produce a foamy soap by squeezing the belly of the container rather than pumping from the top of the package. The bottle requires one-handed operation and the foamer contributes to the illusion of a crayon brought to life.—Jim George
