Incredible Shrinky Dink Maker Review

Updated on September 9, 2014

Back in the dark ages when I was a kid (mid to late 1970's), Shrinky Dink making required adult participation as mom had to insert the raw Shrinky Dinks, and remove finished ones from the hot oven. With the dawn of the Incredible Shrinky Dink Maker, adult participation is no longer required so maybe mom can bring out the Incredible Shrinky Dink Maker and sit down and relax while the kids are busy making unique Shrinky Dink creations.

The Incredible Shrinky Dink Maker is built like a Easy Bake Oven, you insert a raw Shrinky Dink on a tray through a slot that is too small for children's finger so their is no hazard of getting their hands burnt. The finished Shrinky Dink is deposited in a drawer that is on a timer allowing the finished product to cool down before being extracted. This is a second generation Incredible Shrinky Dink Maker, it no longer requires a light bulb as a heat source but instead uses a built in heating element. Although the Incredible Shrinky Dink Maker does not require adult participation, I still would recommend adult supervision as it must be plugged into an electric household outlet.

The Incredible Shrinky Dink Maker makes fast work of finishing (shrinking) the Shrinky Dinks. Most Shrinky Dinks are done in five minutes. Part of the fun is watching the Shrink Dinks shrink before your eyes through the viewing window on the top. The Incredible Shrinky Dink maker comes with everything you need to start making Shrinky Dinks and is a perfect toy to have around as an indoor activity when it is too cold, rainey, or snowy for outdoor play. The Incredible Shrinky Dink maker is inexpensive and has provided me and my 6 year old daughter hours of entertainment. I am sure it will provide your family many hours of entertainment as well.
