Let your little Picasso practice their painting with the help of the Melissa and Doug Deluxe Standing Easel. This Melissa and Doug Easel features a dry erase board on one side and a chalkboard on the other. Kids can use the included clips to attach drawing paper to the top, allowing them to paint or draw like the real artists! When their masterpiece is finished, the handy cutting edge located at the top of the easel will help them to cleanly remove their work. The Melissa And Doug Easel can be folded up for easy storage in closets or under the bed and comes with a tray for holding paint cups, brushes and chalk.
I did, however, come across many reviews that said that the chalkboard side simply didn’t work. Frustrated users wrote that their children were unable to make even a mark using chalk on the chalkboard.
Not everyone had this complaint, many were completely satisfied with the easel and highly recommended it. Hopefully the problem with the chalkboard was just a fluke.
