Subject: Etch-a-Sketch

Written By: Jay T. on 12/05/98 at 06:52 p.m.

I'm looking to purchase the Etch-a-Sketch Animator, Model No. 520. As you may know, they no longer make this product. Does anyone know where I might be able to get one. Any assistance would be much appreciated. I've exhausted my options at this point, and someone really wants this item. Can anyone help?????? Thanks! Jay

Your best bet is flea markets and yard sales, one of my friends was able to score a few that way, they were popular enough.. of course this isn't the best time of year for that.. you could also try thrift shops.. I doubt you'll find one on the internet though

Depending on where you live, you could check out some vintage toy stores. I'm in the Pittsburgh area and know of at least one vintage toy store that has original "used" toys from the 50's, 60's, 70's, etc. If you're interested I can get you more info. Let me know!

Amy D., Any information you can get would be great. I might be able to get to some of the factory outlets in PA, so maybe I'll be able to stop by the Vintage toy shop. Thanks for your help.

Jay: The name of the toy store is "Groovy" and it's located on East Carson Street in Pittsburgh's South Side neighborhood. The phone number is 412-381-8010. Give them a call - they might have what you want!! The South Side has alot of cool shops too - records and books (used and new). Let me know how you make out!!
