    I had so many Etch-a-Sketchs. I loved them. I am sure the girls will enjoy one too.

    I loved this as a kid. How fun to see it again.

    I can’t believe it’s 60 years old. I loved mine when I was little. I think I had a regular size and then later got a small one for travel.

  • Dana Rodriguez

    Wow! I had these as a little girl! Classic fun for sure!

    This was my very favorite toy growing up. I would spend hours and hours playing with an Etch A Sketch. I had one when they first came out- classic red and I took it everywhere!

    This looks like you can do so much with this nowadays. The art is amazing

    I played with etch a sketch and now my grandkids play with them. How exciting that they have a Rubik’s and Stan Lee edition.

    I want to get the Etch A Sketch® Rubik’s Edition. I loved Etch A Sketch when I was younger.

    I love the Stan Lee Etch A Sketch! That would be a fun gift for any Marvel fan. It’s amazing that it’s been 60 years since Etch A Sketch was released!

    Ah, Etch-A-Sketch! That really takes me back… so many hours spent drawing, erasing, and drawing again. Of course, back in the day, the red frame was the only option, but I’m loving that Rubik’s design. Now I’m wondering how old is too old to get a new Etch-A-Sketch–LOL!

    I really like the rubiks cube addition. It is really colorful and fun

  • Peggy Nunn

    The girls are excited to get an Etch A Sketch to play with. It will be a good creative item for them.

    My kids love to play with them no matter what age.

    I loved playing with my Etch A Sketch when I was a kid. I was not very good. I remember being frustrated quite a bit.Especially when my mean little sister would shake my Etch A Sketch wiping out the picture I had worked on for hours or days and was trying to save.

  • Deborah D

    I had no idea that etch a sketch was 60 and still going strong.

  • Stephan Grant

    Etch-A-Sketch turns 60! I had one when I was a boy and it was great to have in the car on a road trip. I still remember how cool it was to shake and see your drawings disappear like magic. Still a kid’s favorit today. Thanks for the memory.
