Ohio Art: Classic Etch A Sketch - Review and Giveaway

I received product for review.  The opinions within this post are of my own and I was not influenced in any way.  Please do your own research before purchasing products or using services.  Your opinions and results may differ.
 
Our world is constantly being introduced to new toys and technology.  And that's quite all right.  But sometimes it's wonderful to explore the days of yore.  It doesn't have to be all about computers and electronics. 
 
Some toys of yesteryear are still around, and are as much fun to play with as the newest playthings.  For instance, the Etch A Sketch brings back fond memories of my childhood.  And I love that it's still in existence. 

Etch A Sketch, the World’s Famous Drawing Toy® turned 55 in 2015! It's a simple apparatus that can bring about hours of fun.  It requires no batteries, just an imagination.  With the classic Etch A Sketch®, children can twist and turn to create pictures. Just turn both the horizontal or vertical knobs and watch the magic screen as lines begin to form. With some creativity, you can make objects appear out of lines.  When finished, just shake it and start the fun all over again.  I can't draw to save my soul but still get a kick out of the Etch A Sketch. 

When doing your holiday shopping this year, be sure to keep in mind the toys and games that have stood the test of time, like the Classic Etch A Sketch.

Win It!
 
One person will win a Classic Etch A Sketch.

I did have an Etch A Sketch and I loved it. I remember a creepy toy a little similar too - it was like a foam stick figure that you could move with knobs (in the same way the Etch a Sketch draws).

We had several of these! My brother had a tendency to break the screen, and all the little black pieces of sand fell out everywhere. My mom then always swore she'd never get us another - but she always did! scain54(at)aol(dot)com
