The world is a little less colorful today.

Crayola has announced that it will discontinue the dandelion-colored crayon from its 24-count box.

The famed company had previously announced it would make the big reveal on Friday.

While dandelion clears out its desk at Crayola world headquarters and plots its move to Florida where it can acclimate to a life of shuffleboard and early bird dinner specials, Crayola is busy milking these colorful developments. On Friday -- which, not so coincidentally is National Crayon Day -- it will share what color will take dandelion's place in a livestream event.

It's like a baseball player getting called up to the big leagues, so whatever it is, we hope it's ready to be in the limelight. Or, in this case, a 24-count box.
