Gone are the days of sniffing plastic...

..now that the kids are grown.. there are no more toys.. no more dollies..no more playhouses to purchase this holiday season..no more of my favorite christmas-time scent..


ya..call me crazy..call me weird.. but i love the smell of fresh plastic and the reason relates back to a christmas when I was about 6. I remember getting a new vinyl or plastic purse..and the best part about that little cheap purse..was it's smell..oh ya..and the fact that it was probably my very first purse.

Clothing.. reading material.. giftcards.. and real life 'necessities' will fill the boxes under our christmas tree this year.
Gone are the days of barbies, racecar tracks, tea sets, annoying noisy guns and tearing into packages adorned with winnie the pooh paper, looney toons or teenage mutant ninja turtle wrappings...
gone is the smell of plastic.

The sense of smell is very powerful and can evoke memories from the past that are as clear as yesterday. I think you need an Easybake Oven under the tree this year, with a 175 watt bulb in it. Then you'll smell some plastic HaHa

I must admit, I never thought I could become emotional over the thought of plastic, but I know exactly what you mean.

My kids are now 20, 19 and 15. No more Little Tykes Workshops, Batman action figures or Polly Pockets.

Boy oh boy, I know what you mean!
