They had me at the name Smellies Clothing. And the tag line – interactive t-shirts – was so full of possibility. A t-shirt that could hold a conversation, perhaps? Or play fetch with a stick in the park? Not quite, my friends, but still AMAZING. The ranges include Colourchange (Hypercolor-style, they change colour with touch and body heat) and Glow In The Dark (um, yep, these ones glow in the dark). Oh, and just one other range of interactive t-shirts…SCRATCH N’ SMELL T-SHIRTS.
Unfortunately, they only come in little people’s sizes at the moment, but I reckon if we start an EverydaySparks petition, we might just be able to push for the production of adult-size scratch n’ smell t-shirts. The only problem I can see is if people try to scratch you while you’re wearing it. I distinctly remember fights over scratch n’ sniff stickers back in the day, when people would sneak scratches and sniffs, reducing the powers of your magic stickers and resulting in tears. There was an irresistible sort of urge to scratch them, which wouldn’t be so great when they’re in t-shirt form – if you were wearing your Smellies t-shirt on a crowded train, say. Or at a job interview. Or on a blind date. But otherwise, love your work, Smellies Clothing!
All of these pics are from their website and you can check out the ranges (and the very reasonable prices) from this unique Australian company here.

Where do you find these things???
I would join that petition, although I cannot help hearing my mother in the back of my head saying they would only last one wash… although if the smell is good enough maybe you would not need to wash it….. anything that reduces the laundry would be greatly received 🙂
Mr C and I will sign a petition – we dream of a world of scratch and sniff or even better, of lickable things (ala Willy Wonka. However, not sure we would want to go down the route of lickable clothing as that could cross the boundary of taste and decency (would be a sell out for hen and stags parties though)
