was a good day in the 5th grade when my homework was returned with a
sticker on it. It would not be any regular ole sticker; those were
the days of the scratch and sniff stickers.
Would I get the pizza one telling me my
work was "Hot Stuff," the
strawberry sticker declaring that it was "Berry Good," or maybe even the
ice cream cone that was so sweet smelling and reassuring with its "Scooper
Dooper." What better way to engage students than to engage their
senses; nothing says better school work than bribery with smelly stickers.
still have all those papers with all those stickers in the closet, and
wouldn't you know, they still smell! They knew how to make things in
the 80s - twenty-five years later and my Poppin' Good sticker still smells
. . . well, poppin' good.
If you miss these
wonderful items from the 80s, they can still be yours. SmellStickers.com
has brought back these scented sensations for the 21st century and beyond.
Also, ebay generally has
plenty to choose from if you are willing to pay. But, really, the
scratch n sniff stickers pay you back many-fold with their tireless
declarations of good cheer and encouragement. Who couldn't use a
little "Grape Stuff" in their life? And, when's the last time you
had an adorable gum ball machine tell you that you are "Looking Good!"
Aaah, if only we could use smell-a-vision and transmit their sweet smell
through your computer monitor, now that would be "Berry Good" indeed.
