Etch-a-sketch inventor dies

Did you ever have one of these?
I did. And judging by its iconic status and availability as an iPhone/iPad case so did an awful lot of other people.
Apparently it underwent something of a revival too thanks to its appearance in the Toy Story movies.
Anyway, it's inventor is no more. Andre Cassagnes died in Paris on 16 January.
And so did another small piece of my childhood.

  1. Ooh, my brother had one of them. Very frustrating. Couldn't do round corners, only square ones. But they really were the must have toy of the time xx
