For Bacon’s Show and Tell for March we are focusing on another great toy you had from childhood. Mom and dad both had this toy. They played with it for hours – you could mess things up, redo the picture, write stuff and draw beautiful pictures… if you were talented – snorts. What was this awesome toy you are asking.
An Etch-A-Sketch. Do you remember them now? Oh my pigs. Mommy got a dreamy look on her face as she reminisced about her memories. One of her favorite things was going line by line only moving inches at a time to the left to make the entire screen blacked out. What a thrill that was when you couldn’t see any part of the screen – snorts – mom was so easily amused for sure. She said that hers got broken because one of her brothers stepped on the glass part. Another toy that had a brief life expectancy but was fun while she had it.
Dad remembers playing with his as well. He had more talent… I guess you could call it that… and he would draw on his. Now, I’m not saying that you would recognize the pictures – snorts – but he would attempt at it. And then write messages on it and erase them to keep them secret. He doesn’t remember what happened to his childhood inspiration. It’s probably a good thing.
Can’t wait to visit other blogs and see what they had as one of their cherished toys from childhood. Hope you had fun this month my friends!
