Most current historians believe that the magic slate toy, a drawing toy with renewable drawing surface, first appeared in the 1950s. The toy endured, often featuring favorite children's characters or an educational theme. An early example bears a 1944 copyright for the licensed use of the Blondie comic strip character.
