Etch A Sketch Joystick Drawing Pad

Spark creativity and bring out your little one’s inner artist with the Etch A Sketch Joystick. This paperless drawing pad is a modern take on the iconic toy. Updated for younger artists, the two dials at the bottom of the frame are now one easy-to-use joystick that swivels 360 degrees! Toddlers will develop fine motor skills and hand-eye coordination drawing loops, lines and circles. When it’s time to begin again, simply shake to erase! With no clean up needed, this drawing pad gives kids the freedom to delve into their creativity and express themselves, even at a young age. Since little hands can only hold so much, the iconic red frame of the original has been transformed into a vertical design, so kids can hold and doodle. Introduce your toddler to the joy of drawing with the Etch A Sketch Joystick!

My Thoughts

When I was a kid, Etch A Sketch was one of my favorite toys ever! Now that I have kids, they love it just as much as I do. The new models from Etch A Sketch are even more fun to play with. The Freestyle drawing pad lets  you make colorful drawings with the stylus and stamps. It works wonderfully, and it simple to erase when done. Your kiddos can take it with them on the go, and have lots of fun in the car.
The Joystick drawing pad is a throwback to the original Etch A Sketch, just a smaller version. This one is easier to hold onto, especially for the little kiddos. To erase it, you just shake, shake, shake! It gives you that drawing fun, like you get with the original one. This is a great model for the toddlers to play with in the car.
Both of these would make fantastic gifts for the Holidays! If you have a child on your shopping list, and you don’t know what to get, I highly recommend Etch A Sketch!
