Fun and funny. 


I don't remember shrinky dinks in the 1970's - don't know why, because I guess they were very popular. Dd and her friends use it now to make jewelry. They print images off the computer and create some terrific stuff. 


I have a fond memory of Etch-A-Sketch. For a while, a few years ago, I had one sitting on a shelf like a framed photo. DS had "written" "I Love You Mom" on it. Eventually, it was shaken and the image was lost, but it was very sweet while it lasted.

Where's the head of hair you could comb and style? I wanted one of those so bad! I remember also really wanting one of those sno cone things and seeing adds for it all the time.
