  This morning, jus tlike 20 minutes ago, I woke up smelling burning plastic.  It didn't smell like normal fire smoke but it was strong!  I wondered if one of my girls had left their curing iron on next to something that was now melted.  I asked my girls and they could smell it but had no clue what it was.  I went out side to see if I could smell it and nothing.  I walked around my house sniffing each room and it was stronger in the bathrooms.  Still found nothing.  Here I am all parranoid that it's some electicle fire inside the wall.  Finally as I'm walking down the stairs (again) I notice I happen to glance over at a wall sconce in the stairwell going down and noticed a green, Nurf, disc dart MELTING!!  Those things fly everywhere, bouncing off stuff (and people) So I shut off the light.  I'll have to wait until it cools before I dig it out.  It's kind of in a PITB spot to get to.  I'm just glad I found it. 

That's never a good way to wake up!!!  Kind of scary.  I'm surprised my DH didn't smell anything.  He's usually the one who is senstive about those things.

Especially coming from the Nerf machine gun!  It can be quite dangerous to walk in the door sometimes!

Oh ya, those can fire off quite a rew!  My boys' multi-fire guns are packed away right now. All they have out is the single shot disc ones, but they're fun too!  Except when they melt in the light.

Umm... I'm quite a lot older than your DS, and my mom still has them all over her house!

Yikes, glad you figured it out.

We had a burning plastic smell the other day too. DH smelled it and figured out it was the crockpot. I guess there was a Target bag in between the crockpot and the metal base. UGH, it was so bad!! We had to unplug it and put the pot outside until we could clean it. That smell is gross.

Glad everything is ok. It's not as bad as what my friend did recently. She stayed overnight at someone else's house and went looking for the tea kettle in the morning. Guess she wasn't quite awake yet because she found it (looked like a "normal" kettle) and put it on the stove to boil. Then she went to curl her hair. When she came back, the ELECTRIC kettle had quite melted on the stove and it was a huge mess. It's not the way her hostess wanted to go about getting a new stove....but you gotta do what you gotta do Stick out tongue
