It could be argued that classic creative toy Etch-a-Sketch was an early form of tablet and many of our smartphone’s now resemble tiny tablets. So it may come as no co-incidence that we’ve picked up on this charming little accessory for Apple mobile range which brings everything full circle – it’s an officially licensed Etch-a-Sketch case for iPhone 4 and 4S!
For those too young to remember – or those who fancy a throwback to a simpler time – the Etch-a-Sketch is a mechanical drawing toy which has stood the test of time from its imagining by French creator Andre Cassagnes in the 1960s to a resurgence in the 80s and is still in production to this day, albeit a little less popular with children in the wake of the kiddy-friendly tech boom.
Available now on the ultimate resource to pick up all things kitsch and classic – TruffleShuffle.com – the Etch-a-Sketch case realistically replicates our childhood pal to the detail with bright red plastic frame. The creative surface acts as a window for the iPhone’s screen and the drawing dials appear for aesthetic nostalgia. Even the golden embossed Etch-a-Sketch logo runs up the side – envoking fond memories of a time when smartphones we’re yet to be dreamt up!
Pick one up today from TruffleShuffle for £24.99 and we’re sure you’ll get your pals visiting memory lane everytime you pull out your iPhone!
