Rated 2 out of 5 by JBazylak from Poor qualuty I have always been pleased with Melissa and Doug toys, so I didn't think twice about buying this. Unfortunately in day one I have already had two issues. 1) the assembly instructions were wrong. And I don't mean I couldn't figure them out. I means the booklet was missing page 3, but I had two copies of pages 2 and 7.f 2) when I had this problem with the instructions, I thought no worries I'd just download the corrected version I assumed they would have on their website. I couldn't find any. 3) the cuts and holes looked like they were made with dull bits/blades. They were so jagged that I had to spend some time on them with sandpaper before I would let my kids near it. Disappointed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by CookiesnCocoa from Still A Winner! Purchased this easel last XMAS, and my 4.5 yr old STILL enjoys painting "masterpieces" on this easel. The bottled paint stays wet while stored, although once squeezed into a cup it will dry if not covered up after a day. But, one only needs less than an 1/8 cup of paint in their accessory cups with which to paint and it reduces paint waste. And, buy some extra paint, cups, and paper, too. The paint brush hairs could be of higher quality, but they work good enough. It was really easy to put together, too. It's a good idea to cover your floors. You know Moms, our kiddos are going to drop as much paint on the floor as they will on the paper. LOL! Be prepared.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Jen - SAHM former Day Care Teacher from The Hunt Is Over!!! Love, love, love, this easel. Multiple activities all in one. Perfect portable organized art center. Folded foot print with trays on is 14 inches with trays removed 6 inches. Trays continue to hold chalk/dry erase markers/paint cups with lids on even in the folded position. Perks: Draw or paint for 2. Comes with paper holder. Clips hold paper in place. And bar to pin paper in place & tear it off too. Chalk board. Dry Erase Board. Trays on both sides permit 1 or 2 to paint without fights over My Red Paint Cup/Brush. Clips to hold paper in place while painting/coloring. Cons/But would happen with any easel: Not for the child who is hard on toys. If they put too much pressure on the trays (paint holder/chalk holder), they will break off. The pro is that you can call and order a replacement tray. We have had paint/creative play dates and initially our friends thought I was crazy until they saw how well it worked. We could actually talk for 10 minutes at a time instead of chasing our 2 year olds in different directions. Yes!!!!

Rated 3 out of 5 by Stacey_R from My daughter loves it, but... My daughter got this for her birthday on 6/27/09. She loves it. I on the other hand wish that the wood was coated in some kind of finish so it cleaned up easier. My mom got her this complete with the art set and while the paint wipes easily off non pourous surfaces, it sticks to the wood badly. She has had it for 2 days and it already looks awful. [...] Aside from the wood being unfinished I love it. The paper tears off nice and neatly making it easy to move on to the next project. Even my 1 year old was trying to get in on the act. It will be used well over the next few years, but I can only imagine what it will look like by the time my kids are done with it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Saphiel from Great product! My 3 1/2 year old daughter loves her easel! She goes back and forth between the blackboard, the whiteboard, and painting. It took my husband and I about 10 minutes to put it together, it was very simple! My only complaint is that I wished it was a little easier to fold. You have to take the paper roll off to fold it, I would rather be able to just fold it with the paper on so I could just set it back up really quick. But I highly recommend this easel!

Rated 1 out of 5 by Mary from By far the worst easel I have ever used for children This easel came with stripped screws, and was not made properly to have all of the parts lined up correctly., making it impossible to be put together correctly. It is very poorly and cheaply designed and does not work well in a childcare center. We have a few in the center and they have been easily destroyed and taken apart by the children. I will not be purchasing any more Melissa and Doug easels.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Nate's Mommy from Love This Easel- *Supplies Not Included* I bought this during Black Friday at a local bookstore for my son. He is 1 1/2 right now (which is a little young per recommended age) but he absolutely loves it! We are only playing with the chalk side right now, as I really don't want him drawing with markers or paints yet. Thinking by the time my next baby is old enough for the chalk, we can get our first born to play with the paints & markers side so they can play at the same time. I love that there are different settings for different children of different heights. I really wish the easel came with a roll of paper & non-toxic / washable art supplies.

Rated 5 out of 5 by cheekyminxx from Perfect for my 2 year old We purchased this for our 2 year old. We selected this one because a friend highly recommended it. Being a stay at home mom I was looking for something to entertain my 2 year old. She loves it, I love it. The adjustable height is key. Also, the chalk board was very easy to prep. My friend thought it would take several go overs with the chalk but two times did the trick. Easy!
