By Orion VINE VOICE on January 12, 2009
I was a lonely child, and we didn't have video games back then. And there were only 5 channels on the television. Really. I am telling the truth about that.

Which means there was plenty of time in my childhood to perfect utterly useless skills, like writing in cursive on an Etch A Sketch. I was good at it. I could draw perfect circles, and lacy valentine hearts, and landscapes with cows.

My kids have none of these skills. They kick my butt at video games. So I bought an Etch A Sketch in self defense. Boy, were they impressed when I whipped out a picture of Spiderman.

They will never be able to do that. None of them. They don't have the attention span it takes to learn how to control a cursor using two little wheels.

So I win at this. It may be the only thing I ever win at when playing with my kids. They do everything else better than me. But I win at this!

I bought the Etch A Sketch for my 2 year old grandson thinking he would have fun watching the lines being drawn on the screen. The Etch A Sketch I remember as a child had a strong, thick, dark line when I drew on it. I could easily tell where I was and where I wanted to go.

The line on this new Etch A Scetch is barely visible! I can hardly see it myself. My grandson was unimpressed and almost immediately lost interest. And like another reviewer mentioned, what line you do have won't shake out! What a disappointment! I should have purchased him another Savings Bond. Next time I will shop retail so I can try it out first hand.

Once again, they do not make toys like they used to. My daughter opened this for Christmas, and I showed her how to draw. The line barely showed up, and was hardly noticeable. Trying to keep her attention since the faint lines did not impress, I thought I could excite her by shaking it to erase...Oh but it didn't erase...maybe I need to shake it some more...maybe shake it a little harder??...Nope, it left the lines even with vigorous shaking. It is now in a return box. I will not be buying it again or asking for a replacement. I wish I still had my old Etch a Sketch to give her! I am rating the fun factor low too, because it is more frustrating than fun. If it actually worked properly, I could rate this much higher.

This is just a note to say that I hope everyone who is reading these reviews looks closely to see that the reviewer HAS ACTUALLY PURCHASED THE ITEM! Apparently a lot of old people have time on their hands to write reviews of products they had as a child. THIS IS NOT THE ETCH-A-SKETCH OF 50 YEARS AGO! It is not helpful to write a review of a 50-year old product when people are trying to decide what to buy today.

I, too, was excited for my child to receive the Etch-A-Sketch for Christmas this year. (Yes, we actually received THIS PRODUCT!) Unfortunately, this item is defective and should not be purchased by anyone. As reviewed by several others WHO ACTUALLY OWN THIS PRODUCT, the lines are too faint AND DON'T EVEN ERASE. This is a complete piece of junk and a waste of your money! No child will play with this new version of the Etch-A-Sketch. Did you understand that IT DOESN'T ERASE!

I wish I had ordered mine from Amazon, so I could return it, but we got it for a gift. After this review, I plan to contact the manufacturer and demand a refund. Or perhaps they have another product that works. But this one does not.

My Kids love etch-a-sketch, but the two we bought were broken right out of the box. You could not see the drawings, they were too faint.
We returned them and Amazon honored the return right away.

I too remember 21 years ago when I was 6, moving across country in our sedan and the only entertainment we had were our etch a sketchs, crayons and books. My parents found some games you laid over the top of the etch-a sketch screen like race tracks where you had to stay in the lines, or dot to dots, and we had a blast. The new etch as sketches are HORRIBLE. I've been buying the mini ones for my two older sons (4 and 3 years old) for the holidays and they've been great, old quality style, so I got the big ones expecting the same and didn't get it.

Like everyone else has said, the lines are very faint if they show up at all and they don't erase at all. They can't see what line they're on and they're just plain frustrating. They even feel cheap, there's no weight to them and the dials are very loose. If you want an old style etch a sketch, get the mini holiday print versions some stores sell in their seasonal departments for Easter and Christmas. They work, but unfortunately you have to sacrifice size.

Some of the other reviewers were right, the toy we received drew lines so faint you have to go back over them. Very disappointed.

In today's era of electronic everything, it is nice to show kids 'how hard we had it' in our youth. I manage a group of engineers and drafters and I always had this out as a gag gift when we hire a new employee. I tell them that when the CAD system is down, then can revert to the tried and true for their design work. Circles are notoriously difficult to do!
