This master easel was a gift for my daughter when she turned 5. Setup was simple and I could go on and on about the multiple uses we have gotten out of this product. We love the chalkboard, the paper roll that is super easy to replace when finished, and the dry erase/magnetic side for expo markers or pullimg down the paper and painting a masterpiece! One of my favorite features is the storage underneath for all of your art supplies, and the sturdy holders for all of your utensils right at your child's level! My daughter loved hanging her work on the sides and now that I have another little one in the family, my son is using it just as much!!
I have bought a number of Melissa and Doug products as they are cute and have been very well-liked by my almost 4yr old. She likes "crafts" and I like "usable crafts". She enjoyed putting on the jewels and paint. She didnt put stickers on yet so we havent experienced them falling off like several others mentioned. I will agree with what another customer mentioned about the wood tray that was included to hold the supplies. I was sure it must fit in the jewelry box and lift out. I was surprised that it did not and was just to be thrown away. Should definitely look at changing this in future model.
The coloring explosion is wonderful! Through my mixed media and interest in art throughout my life, I feel as though I never stopped coloring since childhood. The art in this collection is indeed calming, soothing, and a joy to color. I have turned to it often for the calm it really does provide. I have also suggested this title to many people. I hope you enjoy is also!
