Reviews - What do customers think about Scratch and Sniff: Christmas?
My kids loved this book! Oct 19, 2007
My kids really enjoyed this book. They also love the smells of Christmas all year long. The scents work well and are real.
Somewhat Disappointed Oct 3, 2007
Because I've always loved scratch and sniff items since I was a kid, I eagerly purchased this book for my 2-year-old. After reading other reviews, I had great expectations but ended up a little disappointed. Personally, I think some of the scents stink and/or don't smell like the object they're representing. The pine tree in particular smells like those awful hanging pine air fresheners--either that or some kind of olfactory-destroying cleaning product. I also didn't think the chocolate Santa smelled much like chocolate. On the other hand, the cookies and candy canes smelled really good.
Frankly, I suppose it doesn't matter much what I think since my daughter enjoys the book regardless, although she did say the pine tree was stinky (of course, she may have just been parroting my comment). Overall, she loves to scratch and sniff the pages and talk endlessly about the pictures. So, given her enjoyment of this item, I suppose it was a good buy in that respect.
Fun and Smelly Jan 12, 2007
Good first book for children, the Scratch and Sniff gets their attention and is fun..
Scratch and Sniff not HERE on this book Oct 1, 2006
I ordered this book for a single reason "Scratch and Sniff", but this book has no scratch and sniff whatsoever. this site must have titles or pictures screwed up here. The "Jumbo" board book is just that a board book that is slightly oversized filled with photo quality pictures of a little boy and Christmas items.
Love this book for Toddlers Jan 24, 2006
Lots of great smells. The book is a board book so my little girl can flip the pages. We love to smell the Christmas tree.
