Subject: RE: BS: Long gone stationery supplies
Spirographs needed a steady hand and a goodly supply of paper - our house was scattered with discarded swirls abandoned halfway through, when the thing slipped.

I used to like the Etch-a-Sketch, until someone slipped and broke it. We got a replacement but the screen on the new one was plastic. It suffered badly from static and clearing the screen never quite worked properly. It was soon abandoned.
