Shrinky Dink Skateboards

Shrinky Dink Skateboard

The beauty is, it gets smaller, see? Insert joke about street skating decks here. Shrinky Dinks used to be pretty popular, but they don’t seem to be around much anymore. Maybe it’s because the patent expired and someone figured out a way to apply the technology to inkjet paper. The company’s official web site doesn’t mention them. This is the Shrinky Shiny Skateboard kit, from another company, which also appears to be discontinued. I found it on eBay in 2005 and put it on the old hard drive.

Put it in the oven and they shrink! Amazing. This kit is still available from a company called the Creative Group. Creative Group huh? How creative is using an expired patent?

At some point there was a Simpsons Shrinky Dinks Activity Kit that featured Bart on a Skateboard as one of the items, but it appears to be discontinued as well.
