This modern Etch A Sketch will provide limitless amounts of fun and ignite their creativity!
This toy bears the name a classic toy, but the resemblance ends there. If you grew up playing with Etch A Sketch, you might have labored for hours turning the knobs to make a drawing, shaking the toy a couple of times when you are not happy with the progress.
This version has transformed and updated the iconic toy for the modern world with a bit of improvement. It’s easier to draw with the Etch A Sketch Freestyle Toy. Drawing on the classic Etch A Sketch takes a focused skill. Successfully completing a drawing will take a couple of shakes and starting over again from the beginning when you are not happy with your progress. You either made the lines to short or too long, made a knob-related mistake, or had difficulty using the two knobs together to create what you wanted, which is very frustrating.
This twist allows you to draw with little effort and skill. You use a pen or stylus to draw on it instead of two knobs. The colored lines come out with little effort and they are crisp. It also includes two stamps that allow you to make clouds, circle, crown, and stars on the screen.
The screen is black, and the background colors are fixed. Once you draw on it, the pen and the stamp reveals the pattern. Your drawings come out in the cute colors of the rainbow. Erasing your drawing on the screen is effortless as well, similar to shaking the classic toy. When you are tired of the image, just turn the toy upside down and give the toy a vigorous up and down shake.
The pen is attached to the toy, but the stamps are not. They snap back in, and they won’t really fall out easily unless you drop the toy. Although they fit securely into the open spots in the toy, you need to take precautions to avoid from losing them. They are also double-sided, so it may take a bit of getting used to. The image on the top is not the image that will show up on the screen.
This is perfect for kids who love to write and draw on things non-stop. A limitless sketching pad will keep them entertained for hours.
The toy itself not very thick and is relatively lightweight. It’s a good on-the-go toy that you can bring for car trips, doctor’s appointment, or salon appointment. This toy requires a battery, so make sure you have a supply of AG13 replacements. The batteries are screwed to the body of the toy. This prevents accidents since small batteries are choking hazards.
