Happy Etch a Sketch Day – 60 years of knob turning fun

Happy 60th Etch A Sketch, you’re the most infuriating piece of kit I’ve ever owned but I’d not be without you. Hours and hours of trying to construct just my first name on your aluminium coated screen, no success, but you’re a shelf-worthy and retro-tastic piece of kit. Others (Jane Labowitch in particular) can create stunning pieces of artwork, truly talented and with much more tenacity and patience than we can ever muster. Anyways, get yourself a unit and give it a go – etchasketch.com/
