Etch-a-Sketch Revolution Can Actually Draw Circles

Drawing with an Etch-a-Sketch can be quite a challenge. After all, it’s nearly impossible to illustrate anything with curves thanks to its simplistic X/Y movements. Even the most talented Etch-a-Sketch artists end up with jagged little “stairsteps” instead of real curves. That all changes with the new Etch-a-Sketch Revolution.

Spin Master turned up at the 2020 New York Toy Fair showing off this new version of the classic drawing toy that can now draw curves. It’s still got the traditional X/Y knobs at the bottom, but now it has a round screen that you can rotate. This movement allows you to move the drawing stylus in a perfect circle or arc. The result is an Etch-a-Sketch with much greater creative potential.

It looks like there are still some limitations, since the arcs it can draw all seem to have to follow the same basic circular geometry, but it’s still a pretty neat new take on a classic toy. Best of all, it’s only going to cost $10 when it arrives in toy stores this July.
