One thing that I must stress is follow the instructions EXACTLY! Preheat your cookie sheet in the oven. Use babypowder on the foil. Watch the shrink dinks shrink. Do not use a toaster oven; you will not get the best results. I know this as a friend of mine used a toaster oven and didn't follow the rest of the instructions - the shrinky dinks didn't turn out very well.
The Alex toys brand Shrinky Dinks are much thicker and much more durable.
My daughter and I made charms from the Creativity for Kids kit and they broke within 3 days of use.
Shrinky Dinks are great retro fun-just buy the Alex Toys brand.
Compared to other pre-packaged crafty sorts of activities, this is a good value for the money. There are ten sheets of Shrinky Dink designs to color, cut out and hole punch. Then you get the excitement of watching them curl up and then lay flat again in the oven. This step is great because of how fast it all happens (about a minute and a half to two minutes) - my kids loved watching the Shrinky Dinks transform right before their eyes. Finally, there are tons of beads, jewelry accessories and cards available for several more hours of crafting fun. Overall, I'd guess this one kit can keep a chid busy for a total of 6 to 10 hours to complete all the Shrinky Dinks as well as several necklaces, bracelets, hairpins, etc.
I'm somewhat disappointed in a few aspects of the package. For one thing, there are only six colored pencils included. It would be nice to have about twice that many. (Does anyone know if regular colored pencils will work, or is there something special about the included ones?) Also, the beads included are not the highest quality. The size of the beads varies greatly, which is nice for variety, but some are really hard to string, especially the little white ones. In fact, several didn't even have openings at all. And finally, as others have noted, I too miss the blank Shrinky Dink pages that used to be included.
All-in-all, my daughters (ages 3 and 5) loved this activity as much as I did as a kid, and it filled several hours of our Christmas break.Read more ›
I would like to also point out that the items start out large and feel like paper, but after they shrink up, they become hard like plastic, and they are much smaller. The loops for the charms are pretty weak and open easily, so you might want to use a pair of pliers to squeeze them tight together, or buy stronger loops. Or, if you lose one of the charms like my granddaughter did, use that as an excuse to make a replacement charm!
If you are buying this set and do not have the Shrinky Dinks Maker, you really should consider purchasing it. It makes the whole process so much easier and a lot more fun.
