TREND Retro 80's Scratch 'n Sniff Stinky Stickers Are Back!

Tuesday, April 23, 2024
It's no secret that I've been a sticker collector since I was a child (you can see my nostalgic walk down Sticker Book Lane here) and TREND enterprises Scratch 'n Sniff Stinky Stickers were my absolute favorites. I still have my original vintage collection, but I've been crossing my fingers for years, hoping that TREND would release their original designs again, for a new generation. Lo and behold! My 80's dreams have come true because sticker lovers can now get their hands on 46 iconic ‘80s designs and five collector albums! They're available now, with more to follow. Read on for details!

Disclosure: I was provided with a free sample of TREND Enterprises Scratch 'n Sniff Stinky Stickers in exchange for an honest post, but that in no way influenced my opinion. I've been a Stinky Stickers fan for decades! SOme of the stickers pictured here were NOT free samples and were purchased with my own hard-earned cash. So there.

Don't forget to Pin this post for future use!

What's That Smell? The '80s! TREND Scratch 'n Sniff Stinky Stickers Are BACK! That’s right! The beloved scratch ‘n sniff stickers have been reintroduced by the original company, TREND enterprises, and 46 of the re-released iconic stickers want to find their way into your collector album.

TREND began releasing RETRO Scratch ‘n Sniff Stinky Stickers® last year, based on the original vintage designs from the late 1970s and early 1980s. Currently there are 46 Retro stickers available – Popcorn, Strawberry, Pizza, Dill Pickle, and more – plus five Sticker Collector Albums. These nostalgic treasures from TREND were loved by kids of all ages and are helping make new memories today.

For years, TREND received requests from passionate fans asking for the return of these iconic stickers. With over 1 billion stickers sold by 1983, Scratch ‘n Sniff Stinky Stickers® is the most popular and sought-after product in company history. Decades later, fans are digging up their collector albums and reliving a piece of the ‘80s with Retro Stinky Stickers®. “I can't tell you how much I love these stickers! The smells and the pictures themselves bring back so many wonderful memories of my childhood,” says Leslie, who has been collecting Stinky Stickers® since 1983. “I remember getting them in school, from friends, and begging my mom to take me to the store to get a pack of them,” adds Leslie.

“One of the very enjoyable parts of working on our Retro designs has been hearing the stories and memories these stickers evoke," noted Dave Myers, Creative Director at TREND. "For many, the designs and scents bring back fond memories and reflections of happy times when they collected them all!”

The return of these small, but mighty, treasures has started a SMELL-abration among sticker lovers, collectors, and those who remember original 1980s TREND Scratch 'n Sniff Stinky Stickers®. Sticker collectors will be happy to spot the ★ to distinguish Retro Stinky Stickers® from those printed in the '80s. And just like in the '80s, TREND Retro Scratch 'n Sniff Stinky Stickers® are printed on matte paper.

A star distinguishes the new stickers from the original TREND stickers from the 1980's.
