The man who invented a beloved toy used for making millions of temporary drawings has died.
You probably don't know Adnre Cassagnes' name.
But you're likely familiar with his invention -- the Etch A Sketch.
Cassagnes created the prototype for the famous toy in his garage near Paris in 19-50.
The French electrician later sold the concept to Ohio Art, which has sold more than 150-million of them since.
Etch A Sketch was entered into the National Toy Hall of Fame in 19-98.
Cassagnes passed away last month in his native France.
He was 86 years old.
