Crayola's Multiethnic Skin Tone Markers

Today, being April Fools' Day, is the most difficult day on which to be a NeatoBambino author. It is quite difficult to distinguish between real oddities and fake oddities, especially since April Fool's Day pranks have become very mainstream. So this Crayola product might not be real. It should not surprise us either way that the company might produce markers that reflect a variety of skin tones, although they should be more properly identified as multiethnic instead of multicultural.

Yes, as I commented at the author's post regarding his comments on Futurama: what's the matter with freedom? What's so bad about people being able to move wherever they wish?

I bought the multicultural crayons years ago and none of the eight colors resembled my kids' skin! I mean really, there's no "brown" in the pack. The markers here look a bit more realistic, but at the product site, I don't see a list of the colors.
