Etch A Sketch creator Andre Cassagnes dies
FRANCE -- While tinkering in his garage, French electrician Andre Cassagnes dreamed up a drawing toy that kids could shake up and start over. Little did he know that more than 50 years later, the toy that became the Etch A Sketch would continue to delight children. Cassagnes died January 16 in a Paris suburb at age 86, according to a statement released Saturday by The Ohio Art Company. His cause of his death was not disclosed.
