'Dandelion' is dead, but Crayola's new color is 'Bluetiful'

CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO) - Crayola's new shade of blue is "Bluetiful," literally.

After more than 90,000 submissions, the crayon maker announced the name if its new color Thursday.

The color was accidentally created by scientists at Oregon State University in 2009. They were experimenting with materials for use in electronics when the hue was discovered.

The new blue will replace color dandelion, which was recently retired.
