This was a lot like the Etch-a-Sketch. You erased the picture with a knob or the slider. There was a pen and it created pictures (through magnets) on the white space.

I had a magnadoodle when I was a kid. You didn't control the picture with a knob or the slider... that was used to erase. There was a pen and it created pictures (through magnets) on the white space.

Mine developed spots that you couldn't draw on but I still used it all the time.

I wonder if they all eventually developed those kind of spots... I know mine did too!

This was my official "car trip toy." Mine looked much more primitive than the one pictured above. Just plain with a pen and one open circle magnet and a closed circle magnet. Mine also developed some spots that you couldn't draw on. MUCH better than etch-a-sketch.

Yeah I bet anyone who had their magnadoodle long enough developed spots on it. I think with enough pressure on the screen the magnetic stuff would get stuck. I'd just use it as part of my pictures :) Magnadoodles are super cool!

"Magna Doodle is such fun, just look what I can doodle. Doodle this and doodle that then doodle doodle doodle" to the tune of Yankee Doodle. I need a life

I had the Magnadoodle when I was little and I played with one similar back when I was in school.

I had the blue Magnadoodle with the orange pen and orange circle thing. I would use it for hours and it did develop those spots but I still used it. I remember using that circle tool and making the whole board black and going over and over it to make it super dark lol!
