Crayola retiring dandelion crayon

Crayola is ditching one of the colours in its range.
    
The company announced that it would be removing the gold-tinged dandelion stick from its boxes today, to make way for a new one.
    
The move also ties in with National Crayon Day in America.
    
It is only the third time in Crayola's history that it has retired one or more of its colours, and the first time it is taking one out of its box of 24.
    
"Fans" of the dandelion, which was introduced in 1990, expressed their dissatisfaction on Twitter.
    
Crayola has not said exactly what is replacing the dandelion colour but it hinted that the new colour will be in the blue family.
    
Crayola crayons were first produced in 1903 by Binney & Smith Company.
