New, Also Improved Etch A Sketch Line


Taking It Old School- With Etch A Sketch!

New, Also Improved


The other day while with my 8 year old at his Dr’s appointment he decided to play an old school Etch a Sketch! Truthfully, I didn’t even know they still made those toys. I had several of them when I was a child. In different sizes, and with different function abilities. If you’re a 90’s kid you may remember them as well. With that being said, I also remember them being a pain to full erase, or write on neatly. However that wasn’t the case with the one Ben was playing with at the Doctors. I don’t believe it was an Etch A Sketch brand though.

I went home and immediately looked into a New, Also Improved version of the Etch A Sketch! To my surprise there had been some updates, and expansions to the line!

Introducing the New, Also Improved Etch A Sketch Line!

What’s highly improved with these toys is the erase factor! I hated that your drawing never completely erased, no matter how hard you shook it! This generation of Etch A Sketch seems to be certainly just that! New, Also Improved! In addition to that, I love the magnet shape options available for use! It’s just so nostalgic to see your kids playing with something that you as a child use to love!
