In 1973 homemaker Betty Morris discovered Shrinky Dinks® while trying to come up with a craft project for her sons Cub Scout troop. Betty decided to try a little experiment from a craft book. She used a plastic lid off a potato salad container, and then sketched a flower on it with a permanent marker. To her surprise, instructions were to place the plastic lid on a cookie sheet and bake it. However, something "magical" happened. The lid curled at the edges, then became thicker. A few minutes later the scout leader drew out a tiny plastic charm, about the size of her thumb. "There has to be a market for this" she thought. So it was on that warm afternoon "Shrinky Dinks® were born”. Big Time Toys, has created a child safe oven which allows children to see their creations magically shrink before their eyes. This oven is called The Incredible Shrinky Dinks Maker ®. Kids can have hours of fun creating jewelry, ID tags, key chains, charms etc. The possibilities are endless.
