BSW Toys 3D Shrinky Dinks Review & GIVEAWAY (closed)

BSW Toy Inc is a great place to shop for fun and entertaining toys and craft projects for kids!!
I have had the opportunity to review a few items from BSW Toys and just love all the fun I have with the kids through their products. We have built a birdhouse, decorated our very own cups, and we recently had the chance to make our very own 3D Shrinky Dinks.
Does anyone else remember these things as a kid? I remember making Shrinky Dink charms for jewelry, but BSW Toys has taken them to a whole new level by creating a line of entertaining and educational 3D Shrinky Dinks.
BSW Toys offers their 3D Shrinky Dinks in six imaginative themes to appeal to a wide range of children’s interests. Whether they love animals, space, planes, fairies, dinosaurs, and more- they’ve got something to satisfy!
We got the Zoo Safari theme Shrinky Dinks which included tons of zoo animals which is great for both boys and girls! First we colored our animals. There was a panda, tiger, elephant, tiger, monkey, and giraffe. I let my daughter do the main background color and then, because she is so young, I went back and traced all of the outlines, made any needed changes, and did the final preparations for baking. We cut the animals out, place them on tinfoil on top of a cookie sheet, and placed them in the oven for some quick baking. It was very exciting to watch the characters through the glass oven window as they shrunk into very tiny animals right before our eyes. It took a few short minutes before the baking was done, and we took them out to cool. After they completely cooled, we then began to put them together in their 3D forms—connecting their legs to their bodies and any additional accessories (like the monkey’s banana). I have to say that I couldn’t believe how small the animals got after baking. They literally fit in the palm of my hand when just moments before they were multiple times the size.
These 3D Shrinky Dinks are a lot of fun to play with, are great educational toys, and make perfect craft projects for families…especially during those rainy spring days!
Each 3D Shrinky Dinks kit comes with 10 Shrinky Dinks Sheets (5” x 8”), tracing sheets, a set of easy-to-follow instructions. You will have to use your own supplies such as colored pencils, scissors, baking sheet, etc. They retail for $5.99 and are safe, fun and non-toxic!!
So encourage your kids to use their imaginations and express their ideas by designing their own BSW Toys 3D Shrinky Dinks!
