Funny, I can smell the vinyl just looking at the pictures...
I don't think that I ever had the Colorforms as a kid, but I did have the DIY alternative. The classic felt/flannel board (I think that it was my older sister's 4H project)

It's more fun to play the Colorforms way!

I remember having more fun with my Magnastiks, I never did figure out how they worked, though.

Funny, I don't remember the smell! Maybe my nose has always been plugged because of allergies.

I know there were several sets around the house when I was a kid, but I don't remember the themes / licensed properties.

I do remember a failing not mentioned in the article. Once the "stickers" got dirty, or the board got grubby, it was game over. The magic sticking property was gone forever.
