It’s Etch a Sketch Day! Do you think you can create something as intricate as this carousel horse? Artist Tim George created this horse for us in 2010 based upon a carousel horse on display in our Carousel Wishes and Dreams gallery.
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.
