Rated 1 out of 5 by Diane from Really disappointed for the price Really disappointed that the chalkboard isn't a real chalkboard. Chalk doesn't work well on it. I also expected it to be a magnetic chalkboard that could be used with letters so another major disappointment there. Some parts of the assembly were quite challenging and seemed like it needed a second person. Does not include any paper or accessories. For the price there are much better easels that come with a lot more. If you are going to create a product with an unconventional blackboard you should at least have a recommended type of chalk that can be used with it. I usually love Melissa and Doug products but this time I'm extremely 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 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 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 Lu from 1 year and counting This is an amazing easel for a young child. We bought this for our daughter (3 yrs. old-- she is now 4)last Christmas and we keep it up in our living room. It always has paint ready and available for her to use. (I am big on having creative outlets). I am not kidding when I say that she has used this gift EVERY DAY since she got it. It has been the most used Christmas gift that I have seen in my life. Other brands cost twice as much and generally the only difference is that some of them would probably fit into a living room decor a little nicer than this (keep in mind--this is for a child NOT an adult). She loves this and for me, that is what matters. My living room looks lovely with all the wonderful artwork.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Value should equal price from simple product but pricy for the quality The product was purchased at another retailer. It was easy enough to put together if you had two people, but I wish I would have noticed setting by height instructions. The wood is very weak. The right latch broke when it was dropped at 3 feet up. The paper roller is positioned between latches that when you unhinge to fold easel remember to remove that part first. It should have been better placed on the easel. The price is a bit high for the overall quality. It may not last long with older children or children who play rough with toys. I only give it three stars since it is good for our 2 yr old and it comes with all supplies needed to start after assembly. It is also simple product so don't have high expectations.

Rated 2 out of 5 by The Toddler Teacher from I would not buy this product again We purchased this easel as an Easter present for my three year old daughter. Upon opening the box everything looked great and it smelled like fresh wood; however, once I began assembling it I realized how poorly crafted and packaged the item was. To begin, the long bolts for the easel paper reel were about half an inch too short. (See picture below). After attempting and reattempting many times, I looked online and it seems this is a common trend with this easel. The chalk arrived dirty and the white was broken and the dry erase marker was completely smashed and therefore dried out. (See pictures below) It is quite an expensive easel to have so many defects. Given that this was the main part of my daughter's Easter, I got creative and assembled it using different parts from home. All of the predrilled holes seem slightly off and the bolt lengths are off. The "eight easy steps" were very misleading. Future tip, adding some color to the directions would have been very helpful! We are usually huge fans of Melissa and Doug. As a early primary aged teacher, I use and recommend a ton of their materials to families and colleagues. I am extremely disappointed in the quality of this item.

Rated 4 out of 5 by threetoonemama from Great Product! I love this product. It is just the right height for my 5yo and 4yo to work with. They can draw, paint, use the dry erase side....they love the options. I am also a home-schooler and I use this product ALL the time for teaching lessons. The kids also love doing their work on it. :) My only disappointment is the chalkboard side. It's too messy and I wish I had the option of replacing the chalkboard with another dry erase surface. I had sent an e-mail asking that question, but could not get in contact with an actual person to speak with. :(
