try the iron trick, place some layers of paper towels over the stain, and iron till the crayon melts and is sucked up by the paper towels. leather wipes also have been know to work as well as petroleum based fluid. you could also try peanut butter as a natural cleaner.

Couldn't you scrape it off? It is leather, stains don't sink in.

I'd start with the iron trick, but use a paper bag instead, just the way I have always done it. Its an amazing trick, you can get wax out of carpet!

If that doesn't work, I'm with Leslie, Mr Clean Magic Eraser

Tried the iron trick. Worked great with the crayon that was globbed up on the seat. Still see dark green and pink stains. I will have to try some magic eraser.

Don't forget to properly condition them after using any chemicals, heat or light scrubbing on them. Real conditioner too, not just all in one armor all or wipes.
