I like how the two knobs look like the moon.
The details of this item read:
Even the biggest space shuttles started with a simple sketch! The Etch A Sketch brand teamed up with NASA for this out of this world collaboration, as part of a series of limited-edition collaborations to mark the 60th anniversary of the classic red-framed drawing toy. With no charging, no batteries and no Wi-Fi needed, when you’ve finished a drawing on the original magic screen and are ready to start another, just shake to erase and start the fun all over again!
Invented by André Cassagnes of France, it was introduced way back in 1960 and went on to become an iconic mechanical toy.
