Product Description

Product Description

To twist and turn your way to a masterpiece. To make a sketch, simply turn the vertical and horizontal drawing knobs and watch the line appear on the magnetic screen. To erase your doodle and start again, simply shake the toy. Bring it along on a car trip for mess-free fun in the backseat.

Some classics never lose their appeal! Nested in a colorful, open-faced box, this old friend has the same bright red plastic frame, the same horizontal and vertical knobs, and the same inviting gray drawing screen as the original model. And as always, this Classic Etch A Sketch will provide hours of pencil-free drawing as its owner masters the right-left and up-down movements required. The magic screen upon which your drawings appear is glass, covered with protective clear plastic film. Inside, aluminum powder and plastic beads respond to each turn of the knobs. Owners are encouraged to join the Etch A Sketch club and receive a membership card, an official club patch, and a newsletter three times a year. --Liane Thomas

Unfortunately, they've changed enough of this classic toy that it is not what it used to be. Lines are not dark enough to see very well, and those that do show up do not erase.

C'mon Ohio Art, how dumb do you think we all are? Put out a quality product, on par with the old days, and your sales will be even better. Better yet, you won't be producing plastic junk that goes straight to the landfill.

UPDATE: I contacted the company and, amazingly, they stood behind the product and shipped me two new ones - to the other side of the planet. The new ones work much better. They also took the numbers off the back of the units and got their engineers involved to figure out what had gone wrong with the manufacture of my two... pretty impressive. Three cheers Ohio Art!

I had the same problem with this toy as most others. The lines dont's really erase. I also found the lines to be too thin and faint for a 4 - 6 yr old. I'll be giving mine away and looking for another make for the same toy.

I was so happy to find that the Etch a Sketch is still available. I thought it was a toy of the past. I bought one for my coffee table at home and everyone that comes over plays with it and reminisces. It's a great toy for all ages - especially for creatives.

Don't get me wrong, Etch A Sketch is an awesome toy. As long as the buyer receives a product that works properly. I'm not sure if the quality of the product (we received) has changed since I was a kid (the answer - probably yes), but immediately after opening the toy for my 5 year old (he was celebrating his bday), the thing just didn't perform well. We soon realized that the lines didn't erase from the screen. After shaking the toy like madpeople, we just couldn't get the images to really disappear. Now, with my toy in the 80s, the images could be easily erased with minor, controlled shaking.

Which is a shame, since both my kids were looking forward to a really cool toy. A toy that I talked and hyped up quite a bit, reflecting on my own youth where I'd spend hours creating cool images and designs on my Etch A Sketch. I don't think we've quite given up on this toy - we may look for another vendor or store to purchase from in the future.

Don't know if I just got a lemon, but my etch a sketch was junk. Did not work well, lines would disappear while drawing then come back in another part of the screen. Some lines were not even straight. Very disappointed, my son had a key chain sized etch a sketch that worked much better.

I bought the Etch a Sketch for my 11 year old. It seems I should have bought 3 more because my other children love it. They seem to be getting better at making rounded lines with the practice they are getting. They love it!

Don't you just love toys that span generations? I loved etch-a-sketch when I was a kid and to my delight so does my nine year old nephew. It's a great way to acquire dexterity with your fingers whilst having a lot of fun too. I never quite mastered the art of drawing Elvis's face on my etch-a-sketch, but I know people who did and what you can do with one of these babies is quite astounding! However I loved making patterns and fiddling around with the knobs even though I never made it as the next Picasso. This is an ageless toy that I still play with now and I am well into my thirties! It's theraputic and fun and I for one am still glad it is on the market in the year 2000.

Got this for my son. He loves it (of course)but not very durable. Less than a month and the vertical line is not dark anymore. The pad barely erases the previous lines. Maybe they have always been this way, but I don't remember that from when I was a kid. Definitely feels cheap. The price was good, but I would pay a few dollars more for better quality.
