Etch A Sketch Freestyle

Everyone knows the classic Etch A Sketch, we all had one and thought it was super cool. That was then, welcome to the future. This freestyle version brings the classic doodle board to a whole new level by changing things up and adding a stylus. With this Freestyler all you need to do is grab the pen and go to town. You can vary the thickness of the lines by adjusting the pressure of the stylus against the board. Remember those two wheels that were good for drawing lines and maybe steps? This is freestylin’ and you can draw not only straight lines but also curves. Imagine that! Curves! Children can draw as they would on a sheet of paper. The board reveals beautiful rainbow colors instead of our plain old gray lines. The board also features double-sided stampers stored where the classic knobs once were, allowing children to add fun shapes and patterns to their masterpieces. Once they are done, they simply shake the board up and down just like we used to and the drawing magically erases without a trace and returns to a perfect blank canvas. Testers felt strongly that this would be a wonderful addition to any collection of toys. Children can work on their drawing and writing skills, but it also gives parents a fun way to teach letters, numbers, word recognition, play drawing games and many others either at home or on the go.

HOW IT WORKS

A Seal of Approval review involves a multi-step process conducted over an eight-week period.

Parents and children, experience and review submitted products and services either already released or coming to market.

Participants fill out questionnaires for each product or service they test. They score based on 13 levels of criteria including quality, appeal, design, price, packaging, directions, desirability, stimulation, replay factor and more. Results are based on both statistical averaging and comments received by testers.

There are three testing periods each year:

Each submission must be accompanied by a $295 product testing fee (we offer multiple submission discounts). This fee covers the cost of testing, nothing more. It is non-refundable and has no bearing on the result of the testing. Additionally, we require three samples of the product or access codes for online submissions.
