PHOENIX — Crayon company Crayola announced plans Tuesday to open a Crayola Experience in Chandler next summer.

The 20,000-square-foot attraction in Chandler Fashion Center will be the fifth of its kind in the country.

There will be a 4,000-square-foot retail space, containing the world’s largest selection of Crayola products and souvenirs.

The rest of the space is dedicated to 19 hands-on activities, including “Wrap it Up,” where guests name and wrap their own crayon, and “Be a Star,” where guests can star in their own coloring page.

“Crayola Experience is more than just an attraction – it’s a dynamic and colorful place where families can come together to create, play and make memories that will last a lifetime,” Victoria Lozano, senior vice president of retail, said in a news release.

“Our new Crayola Experience in Chandler perfectly aligns with its family-friendly community and we look forward to welcoming the community next summer,” she said.

The attraction will be open year-round and is expected to hire more than 100 employees.

It will hosts private events and parties, and families will be able to purchase annual passes.
