Product Description

Melissa & Doug Deluxe Standing Easel

Amazon.com

Inspire your young Picasso with the Melissa and Doug Deluxe Standing Easel. This easel will fuel your child's imaginative side and gives them the freedom to create with an extra-large chalkboard, dry-erase board, and easy-load paper roller. Your budding artist will be inspired by free-form expression and spend hours drawing, painting, sketching, and doodling. It is also an excellent educational item and children love playing school with the chalkboard side. This work station is ideal for kids ages four through 10 and has an adjustable height to accommodate the little ones as they grow.

A Great Alternative to Professional Easels
Just like a professional easel, this work station is generously sized so that children can complete projects both big and small. Its durable wood construction ensures that it won't tip and it folds up easily for convenient storage. The easel also has a sturdy paint tray with cup holders for easy use and clean-up, and another tool tray that holds erasers, chalks, and clips. Four large, colorful clips are included with this easel. Paper rolls can be loaded effortlessly into the holder and a paper cutting edge at the top delivers clean cuts and leaves your artist's work whole. Parents may have to assist removing and loading the paper, as it can be difficult for kids to do on their own. (The paper rolls and paint cups are not included.) A standing easel is essential for any young artist. This large easel has a chalkboard, dry erase board, and paper roller to let the children express themselves with different mediums. It also has an adjustable height that grows with the creator and delivers years of use. The brightly colored tool containers are capacious enough to hold lots of different items and are simple for tiny fingers to utilize. This toy will unleash the little artist inside every child and could spark a lifelong interest in fine art.

What's in the Box
Easel, paint tray, chalk tray, 4 colorful clips, and paper roller.



This large easel has a chalkboard and dry erase board, letting children express themselves with different mediums.

This easel is a great buy! Very sturdy and high quality as most of mellisa and doug products. Colorful, kid friendly and easy to put together. Both the writing boards and the trays are adjustable for the height of your child. It folds up easy, but stands strong. This easel DOES have a place for a paper roll!! I did not think it did by the amazon description (I almost bought a more expensive one for the paper roll but decided to go with this and am so glad I did) ... the roll goes in the center between the boards and the paper comes up through the top and under a paper guide in front of the dry erase side. I can't image why you would spend more on another brand of easel, this one has everything I could think of wanting and is simple, solid wood, looks good and is super functional. This is the first review I have written, but wanted to pass on how happy I am with this product.

I bought this easel as part of the classroom I set up for my preschooler. I love the adjustable size, durability and ease of use. My only complaint was the chalkboard. Though I followed the priming instructions diligently, I found that even the good chalk scratched the board and did not write well. Melissa and Doug did reply immediately to my concern and were willing to do whatever necessary to correct the problem. On a whim, I decided to try some chalkboard paint instead. It now writes beautifully, and I love the black chalkboard, rather than the green it came as. It is perfect.

This easel works very well and is easy to put together, but is also much better looking than others I have seen for a comparable price. We gave this to my daughter at 20 months (younger than the suggested age) and she loved it right away. However, even at the lowest setting she can't draw to the top, which frustrated her unless she stood on a step stool -- guess that's why it's better for age 3+.

This is a nice looking easel, and is definitely sturdy, and it is definitely sturdy. It is so sturdy that an adult will not be able to even make a line on it. I wrote Melissa and Doug to ask what to do about the fact that the chalk board cannot be written on. I received a reply stating that the chalk board needed to be sanded, or primed before your child uses it, so I took it into my shop and first applied the recommended primer to remove that high gloss waxy finish. Well that didn't work, so then I tried a light sanding. Still did not work. Being a little on the obsessive compulsive side, I decided to step up my effort and use a power sander. After all this effort my two year old daughter still can only make a couple of light lines, gets frustrated and quits. As an adult male, weighing 170 lbs I find that I need to use allot of elbow grease to make a few lines on the chalk board. Now my daughter tries to draw on the walls. Very disappointing experience. Go out and get yourselves a vintage easel. Back in the old days you were able to actually write on a chalk board. Not like this mass produced " Made in China " junk of today!!!

I did some research before purchasing this easel for my son's 2nd Bday. I wanted something durable,fun and would be age appropriate for a 2 & 6yr old. Reading some of the other reviews of this easel I was a little sceptical, however it had all the items I was looking for. Plus it was one of the ONLY easels that adjusted to height. All I can say is I'm glad I ignored the negative comments and bought this. For those of you on the fence let me tell you we've had NO problems with the chalkboard. We did buy the Melissa and Doug easel pack, just so we would have everything ready to rock for his BDay surprise. You do need to buy "soft" chalk, crayola sidewalk chalk works great. The other issues some people had were with the dry erase board and tearing off the paper. We honestly haven't used the dry board yet. I'm not a big fan of the smell of the pens, however we have painted several pics and haven't had any problem tearing off and pulling the paper down.
Another concern I read about was the fact that the easel could be taken apart easily. That is true. The screws can come off with little hands, however we have found a way to prevent this. It's a new phrase: "no touching". It seems to work well in our house.
I would definately reccomend this product to anyone with a little Rembrandt on their hands! We LOVE it!

We got this easel as a present from my sister to our two year old daughter. It is the best gift we could have gotten. It is beautiful, and it's easy to assemble. Our daughter loves it, and the height (which is adjustable) is great for her on the lowest setting. I had read negative reviews on the chalk board, but we have no complaints on it. She really enjoys painting, and spends long chunks of uninterrupted time enjoying it. I really recommend this product!

I bought this item for my 3 year old daughter and had the same problem with the chalkboard (not working so well). I call the 800 number on the back of the box and the people in customer service sent me a new chalkboard. I was amazed at how helpful they were and the desire they had to make me happy. I will buy Melissa and Doug toys for years to come.
