I bought this last year for my 5 year old for Christmas and she has used it almost every day since! She loves to paint and draw and this is the best product with the dry erase board and paint paper and then chalkboard on the other side...I admit the chalkboard doesn't get much use plenty use of the dry erase board. I have bought another roll of paper and need a another set of paints. All in all this is a well built, durable product that will last for a very long time and best of all it was EASY TO ASSEMBLE!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Happy2shp greatest purchase for my grandchild.
I needed a easel for my autistic grandchild and wanted one that would last and have all the things you want an easel to have such as blackboard and dry eraser board. This one had all that plus a place for a roll of paper. It was easy to put together and has met all my expectations also. The adults are even having fun with it.
I would recommend it greatly to anyone who is needing an easel.

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!!!!

I looked at many websites for art easels for my daughter, When looking I compared price, quality, and shipping costs. JCPenny was the best for all three. I cant be any happier.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Lacybug Excellent quality - should last a long time
I am very pleased with this purchase. I ordered this for my granddaughter who is 4. This arrived when promised. Packaged very well with all pieces labeled. I put it together the night before and it took me about an hour as I was doing it by myself. The directions in the book were easy to follow, all the pieces were marked perfectly. I didn't have to drill extra holes, have mismatched parts, or have trouble following the directions. It is very well made and looks very nice. It will last a long time. My granddaughter loves it and has already spent many hours on it. I purchased the accessory set as well, but have not let her try the paints yet, but I will in time. I am extremely pleased with the price and my purchase.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Mary 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.

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.
