I love finding classic toys for my children, especially toys that I played with as a child so I was so excited to learn that Etch a Sketch from Ohio Art is still around and going strong! I can't believe they just celebrated their 55th birthday this year, that's amazing. I can remember spending countless hours on my Etch A Sketch as a child, using only my imagination and 2 knobs to create fun and creative pictures. We didn't need electronics. We didn't need any video games. We didn't even need batteries. Our Etch A Sketches keep us occupied for hours on end on long car rides and on rainy days inside.
Etch A Sketch was created in 1955 when an electrician accidentally got the inspiration for a drawing toy while installing a factory light switch plate covered in a translucent decal. He made pencil marks on the decal face and after peeling the decal away, he noticed the image had transferred to the opposite side. Since it's invention, over 150 million Etch A Sketch's have been sold!!!
While the designs have evolved, the simple idea has remained the same and Etch A Sketch remains a timeless classic in homes across the world today.
One lucky reader is going to win an Etch A Sketch of their own.
