Happy Birthday Etch-A-Sketch!

Conceived in France, born in Germany and raised in the USA by Ohio Art, the Etch-A-Sketch turns 50 years old today!

Definitely my favorite "toy" growing up. I had the most fun drawing elevations and floor plans (maybe because there were very few curved lines).

Read a great article by Jon Chavez on the Etch A Sketch in Scripps News, visit the Etch A Sketch facebook page, and learn about the world's largest Etch A Sketch on exhibit at the Children's Museum in Indianaopolis!

and don't forget to visit way cool Etch's land at Ohio Arts.
