Inventor of Etch-A-Sketch Dies

If only the Etch-A-Sketch was that versatile. Separated characters and items were not possible, as any disappointed former owner will testify.
Cool kids didn't have Etch-A-Sketches, they had Johnny Sevens and the rifle of legend.

More disappointment. The illustration on the box promises wooden furniture, the reality was something entirely different... black plastic everything (except for the bullets which were grey polythene, if memory serves..... and I don't remember getting a bayonet attachment with mine, either!!!)

I never had an Etch A Sketch. But I knew other kids that did. The box had all these shapes and spirals that they reckoned you could do. Thing is, the cursor could not leave the screen, so it was impossible to do.

Oh mine had a bayonet. Ah the good old days, when toys could be relied on to take other kids eyes out.:rambo:

They didn't do a Hi-Power equivalent. For a sidearm, you had to rely on the serious stopping power of a Sekiden pistol; a spring-powered affair that made a 'dung-dung' noise when it fired its pellets.



As you can see, it shares a similar construction quality with a Glock but with a far greater magazine capacity.
