Magic Slate

Let's face it. You loved these when you were a little kid. But only for a few hours. Because that was the average life of a Magic Slate.

Magic Slate peel back dry erase boards were ubiquitous at supermarkets. And sold for less than 98¢ each.

They came with a plastic stylus, with which you drew or wrote something on the Magic Slate. What most kids were NEVER told (or just plain ignored) was any kind of pressure you put on the stylus tip would create a permanent groove in the cardboard backing, rendering those spots ruined and unusable. 

Eventually, the whole board would be destroyed by the end of the day......
