Etch A Sketch was a favorite toy beginning in the 1960s. Now there is an online version of the famous toy.

Three Modes

The Web a Skeb has horizontal and vertical “knobs” similar to a traditional Etch a Sketch and has a shake button to erase your drawing. Unlike the original toy, Web a Skeb has three modes or styles, Fast, Fancy, and Fanciest.
