I got these for my girls for Xmas - a walk down memory lane for sure. They love them. The pencils with the kit are pretty lame but work - just not very bright or dark. We used regular colored pencils after the first batch and boy are they way more vibrant, bright, etc. So invest in a $1.00 pack of regular colored pencils for yourself or when giving as a gift for best results! And when we were kids, they did not work in gas stoves, but they work in them now!!!!!!! :-)
I have a hard time finding arts and crafts to do with my 9 yr old son...but this item was perfect. I loved it because it was so 'retro' and I was able to share the memories of making Shrinky Dinks when I was a kid with my son today. It was a good 'cool' art project that boys will love because you make 'cool' wearable charms and key chains. It was a great (no video/tv) activity for us to do with his friends...that he really enjoyed. You can't go wrong with Shrinky Dinks!!!!

I recently bought these as a gift for my nephew turning 6, and he loves them!! I remember loving them as a child myself, and what great memories I have of Shrinky Dinks....they are a true classic and always fun, no matter how many times you've used them....I don't think we ever outgrow toys like that!
Shrinky dinks are Awesome! I loved them as a child and now my kids love them too. The only problem is the coloring. The pencils that come with are smaller in diameter than other colored pencils and are somewhat difficult to sharpen. My kids have mastered the are of shrinky dinks.
I bought this for my grand daughter. She is living in Guam, her father is stationed there in the Coast Guard. I knew they wouldn't have anything like that there and she loves to create things. She is thrilled with the gift. In fact, it was the first thing she mentioned when I spoke with her on Christmas Day. I am so pleased with this purchase. I remember playing with them when I was a child. I was so glad to see them offered on your site and the price was great. Thank you for helping me make my grand daughters holiday a little bit more special!
