On July 12th 1960 the first Etch A Sketches are sold in the US.

Originally invented by Frenchman Arthur Granjean, and later sold to Ohio Art Co., The Etch A Sketch was one of the best known toys that emerged in the 1960s and is still a childhood favorite today! Not much has changed about this iconic toy over the years with its red plastic frame, white turn knobs and gold embossed lettering.
