Stan Lee Etch-A-Sketch

Spin Master sent me a Limited Edition Stan Lee Etch-A-Sketch to check out and review. Opinions are my own.

The Etch-A-Sketch is celebrating 60 years of magic. The Magic screen of the Etch-A-Sketch is a thing of wonder for kids young and young at heart alike. The great thing about an Etch-A-Sketch is anyone can pick it up and immediately start creating and having fun. There is a fantastic tactile feel to this toy. I remember playing with one as a kid and trying to create mazes and then try to go through the mazes. I couldn’t even imagine the amazingly creative works of art that people could make on an Etch-A-Sketch.

To celebrate the 60th anniversary of the Etch-A-Sketch there have been a few Limited Editions commissioned including a Rubik’s Cube, Monopoly, NASA and a Diamond Edition. The one that I was most excited to hear about was the Stan Lee version. This Limited Edition Etch-A-Sketch has fun cartoon images of Stan Lee on the outside of the frame. The knobs have a cartoon Stan Lee head on them and the outer frame is punctuated with some of Stan’s Favorite sayings like Excelsior.

This limited Edition Stan Lee version of the Etch-A-Sketch can be purchased on the Etch-A-Sketch website.

Our First Warm Night

First warm night

Photo-A-Day 2.0 #00505

Tonight was the first really warm night of the year. We put a fan in Andy’s window. It is a bit too early to haul up the air conditioners but I suspect that before June they will be going into the windows. I may even have to get an additional one for the office seeing as I am working from home for the foreseeable future.

A little after Andy went to sleep he got up complaining that he was to hot. When he learned that Allison was out int he back yard with our friend Colleen he put on his Spider Man pajamas and went downstairs. He went back up and ended up moving himself to the top of the covers with his head at the bottom of the bed so he was getting more fan on himself. But he fell asleep wearing the pajamas.
