Going Freestyle

"Introducing the next generation of Etch A Sketch. One that lets you draw loops, lines, curves, and curly-Qs with perfect ease. Just shake to erase! Then draw again over & over!"

Well if this isn't the coolest thing ever!

I'm glad that I have little ones to buy toys for again, just look what I found on a recent shopping excursion! Who knew what a terrific improvement had been made to one of the classics? (Remember struggling to draw a circle with the original twin-dial version, or trying to sign your name?) Are you thinking what I'm thinking? Do you see how this could be useful to a quilter? I think that Nana might need to add one of these to her toy ...er, I mean... tool box!

Life is Good!

Excellent idea ... maybe I need one of these at my desk for those who stop by to fiddle with (and lose a bit of ambient stress at the same time).

Hmmmmmm - I know they love fiddling with the little dish of beach rocks I have.

Good Idea! My kids had the older version. Just looked at the new ones. I can see quilts coming.

Very interesting! I loved Etch a Sketch as a child! Yep, I can see quilt practicing going on there too!
