The colors in the photos look very bold and vibrant, but when we opened the package, they were more like pastel shades. Even so, my kids loved them and still played with them, and they seem to be good quality. Most of the shades we received also look like duplicate colors. This could be due to the shortage of chalk going on now, because of everyone being home with their kids. I’ve attached a photo of the red violet which is bold, but the scarlet is more peachy-pink than red. PLEASE NOTE: chalk arrived intact, my kids had already played with them, which is why they are now broken. They did not arrive broken.
