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 4 out of 5 by KEISHA from Assembly Stuck This is great to help me teach my son all sorts of things, such as his ABC 's , math problems, etc...The height is perfect, for he Ian only 3 years. Assembling the items was a bit of a pain, if you follow the directions, on the second stage it doesn't work.

Rated 5 out of 5 by hope from Excellent Buy for this Easel. Great gift to give any child over the age of three that grows with them. If you have a creative child its a great gift. We gave it to my granddaughter who was four at the time she is now five. She loves it as much as she did the day she recieved it from us.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Inez Earth, Inc. from Excellent choice, especially for two. I have two toddlers close in age, one who is special needs. They can both do artwork together because this easel has two sides. Adjustable height is a big plus, as well as trays. Functional and easy to transport. Melissa and Doug can do no wrong in my eyes!

Rated 4 out of 5 by Smaia from Good quality but... I used chalk on the chalk board and it barely goes on, very faint not like I expected, i don't know why because chalk is chalk but the one i have does not work on the black board. i inserted a picture. Other than that its really good quality.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Mary from Excellent Quality I love this wooden easel! It can handle rough play from two little boys, I have learned. My only issue is that I don't know where to go to get replacement clips and screws. My boys love to try and take it apart and loose some of the parts.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Lisa from Fantastic Product We have had this easel for about a year and a half now, it is still in the same fantastic shape it was when we got it. My son LOVES it! There is no end to the creative things he can do with it, and it provides hours of activity for him.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Justin from Recommended Love it. Had an older one as a hand me down from a friend, but with twin 5 yr old boys who both loved using it we needed another to avoid fighting. Easy to put together and easier still for the kids to use independently if they want to.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Daphne from Almost perfect My daughter loves coloring on the white board! The chalkboard isn't the greatest & the chalk barely shows up. My only complaint is that it isn't collapsible. We live in a small condo & it would be nice to store it away when not in use.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Tess from Chalkboard. Rickety. Stripped screws. Oh my. Love this easel but the chalkboard is not a chalkboard. It's a perfect size for my homeschool classroom buy doesn't stand sturdy. 2 stripped screws. I don't have the box so I will keep it. Maybe I got a lemon. Still an M&D fan.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Michelle from Love it! Just bought this for my 2 and 4 year old for Christmas and it's a big hit! The only problem is one of them was leaving on one of the trays that holds the markers and it broke. Where can I buy spare parts for this??

Rated 5 out of 5 by WBG from Good quality The kids like it, it's intuitive to use and sturdy (though set-up took a couple tries) and it looks nice. May even buy another in the future to put beside it and allow more kids to use them because it's been a hit!

Rated 5 out of 5 by lauralea from One of the best purchases I've ever made I bought this about 8 years ago and it's still in great shape. It is definitely one of the best purchases I've ever made. My kids love it. My daughter has recently been learning to write her name on both sides.

Rated 1 out of 5 by J and J and J from impossible to assemble Long screws are not long enough. Both trays are too short to fit. Paper roll dowel too short. Pre-assembled screws on hinges loose and pop out. We can't assemble it as instructed with pieces supplied.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Ray from Nice but confused by pictures on directions I could not tell which way the legs were supposed to go on in the bottom portion. I had a hard time putting it together ot took a while, I had to take it a part a few times before I got.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Jlgilkey from Not a chalkboard The "chalkboard" is a piece of laminated wood. We have bought several types of chalk and none work on the "chalkboard". Also the knobs are all cheap plastic that keep coming loose.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Dee from I would not buy again or recommend The chalkboard is NOT chalkboard material so writing with chalk is difficult and erasing is even more difficult. Why is it not made with chalkboard material??

Rated 4 out of 5 by Cindi from Need Parts I love this easel and has withstood the test of time but I'm in need of parts and wish it had extra pegs, this needs to be able to close at a shorter width.

Rated 4 out of 5 by lola from I like this product I absolutely love the easel,my 3 years old loves it too, the only thing I don't like is that she can easily remove the screws, and its difficult to close.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Sabrina from Not a chalk board The height is perfect but the chalk board is more like a wood slate. Actual chalk does not work on it. I got it as a gift and I'm really let down by it.

Rated 1 out of 5 by deejay from DO NOT BUY! couldn't even assemble it as the "long" screws that were provided were too short for step 3 of the instructions. Save your money and buy elsewhere.
