In 2008 the Ohio Art Company, maker of the Etch A Sketch, celebrated their 100th year in business. To make the celebration more magical they released an Etch A Sketch in an attractive collectors tin. I was thinking a lot about the Etch A Sketch and then realized that I no longer owned one anymore. So I ordered the Anniversary Edition. The toy is just as fun as I remember it and the tin looks greats. Here is a tip for you real artists out there, once you have made your masterwork and do not want it erased, you can make it permanent by drilling out holes in the back and shaking out all the powder. Once the powder is out, there is no way for it to erase.
