Etch-a-Sketch hit stores during the peak of the baby boom and has been an icon of that generation every since. Marketed as a drawing tool, Etch-a-Sketch took a simple plotter and turned it into a toy.

Each year, art schools and enthusiasts hold contests that feature detailed and elaborate drawings.
