Happy Birthday to Etch A Sketch

Happy Birthday to Etch A Sketch.

Etch A Sketch magic screen toy

I think I must have run through about 30 of the red framed drawing toys with dual white knobs…..and, since I am harkening back to the sixties which we both seem to share, that would have amounted to about $4.00 total over the course of the decade. Sigh.

Now I feel like I could be dubbed: ‘Sketch a Wretch.’

Anyway, at some point I determined that it was imperative to me to somehow crack open the thing to get to the bottom of exactly how the internal works could make the lines appear. Let’s just say they are harder to break than they look.

Well, I won’t ruin the surprise (have fun with your dustbuster).
