About Us


Hi! I'm Michelle, the founder and owner of Funky Crayons and inventor of Wickids. This company was born out of a love of all things handmade and a desire to create something here in Ireland that no one had done before.

Having recycled some old crayons with my son, I was inspired to do more and more shapes with them. When I went to find Irish made crayons I found there were none! I combined these two ideas to create Funky Crayons -funky shaped crayons manufactured here in Ireland. I experimented with different waxes and pigments and came up with a range of crayons made right here in Ireland. 

I live and work here in Cavan, Ireland with my husband and three children. Funky Crayons has been around since September 2013 and is going from strength to strength. Thanks to the great reaction from my loyal customers, it's growing all the time and has now reached customers in 14 countries!
