Homer Etch-a-Sketch

Yes, fellow Simpson-ites, an actual Etch-a-Sketch in the form of the great Homer Simpson! Just twist Homey’s eyes to create your masterpiece…and the cool thing is that when you’re done it will look like Homer’s thinking about what you’ve drawn!

Also available is a mini-Operation Pen with the same obnoxious noise and nose that lights up just as in the original if you miss. Included are batteries and miniscule tweezers. The pens use standard D-1 mini ballpoint refills and at only $5.50, you can get some for some of your tiny fingered co-workers.
