Do You Remember…

Shrinky Dinks are a children’s toy and activity kit consisting of large flexible sheets which, when heated in an oven, shrink to small hard plates without altering their color or shape. They reached the height of their popularity in the 1980s. Most sets are pre-printed with outline images of popular children’s characters or other subjects, which are then colored in before baking.

Shrinky Dinks were invented in 1973 by two housewives (Betty Morris and Kate Bloomberg) of Brookfield, Wisconsin, as a Cub Scout project with their sons. 

From Wikipedia 

I remember being a kid and having Shrinky Dinks. The smell of melting plastic in the air and touching the hot little plastic pieces before the cooled off. 

Now, I see the have a little oven just for Shrinky Dinks. 


Man, I loved to have loved one when I was a kid. 

I just might have to get a box of Shrinky Dinks and recall my happy memories from when I was a kid.
