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.
Love this easel. My 5-year-old daughter loves to play school and this is perfect for her to teach her students (dollies), plus gives her extra practice writing letters, numbers, words, etc. Once again another great product by Melissa & Doug!
