CONSUMER LAW GROUP has launched a national class action lawsuit against Crayola on behalf of individuals who have purchased the product Crayola Washable Coloured Bubbles.
The class action involves the deceptive, misleading, false, and unfair advertising of Crayola Washable Coloured Bubbles as “washable” when in fact Crayola Washable Coloured Bubbles stain everything they touch; sometimes the stains can be removed with considerable expense, time, and effort, and sometimes not.
As a result, consumers were induced into purchasing Crayola Washable Coloured Bubbles under the premise that it was “washable”, which by definition means “soluble in water.”
Therefore, consumers of Crayola Washable Coloured Bubbles would not have agreed to buy a product which does not contain the level of nutrients that was represented to them and certainly would not have consented to pay a premium price for it.
Because Crayola Washable Coloured Bubbles are not washable, but rather leave long-lasting stains, consumers gained nothing of value from their purchases; instead, their property was damaged and they lost significant time and money trying to remove stains the product left behind.
