The magnetic letters that come with this are cardboard.
Bonita L. Thompson
This is a great educational toy as it helps him learn his numbers and letters.
Mightymite
It is hard to erase, but it could be the board and not the chalk.

Looks like an ideal gift for preschoolers, but after purchasing this for my niece, I realize it has significant limitations.

First - the good: It's a chalkboard, a whiteboard, and has magnetic alphabet letters - what more would you want for your 3 or 4 year old? Plenty here to keep your child occupied doing all kinds of different, creative things.

Now, the bad: First, there isn't a place to put the marker and the chalk when not in use. Not too bad if your kiddo is sitting on the kitchen floor, but can be a disaster if he or she is sitting on the carpet. The natural inclination of children is to set everything down (even if the marker top is off - which it usually is). This also becomes a problem if your artist has just drawn a wonderful picture on the whiteboard side and flips it over to draw with chalk on the other side (whiteboard side face down on carpet - you get the picture). Yikes!

Second, the age range mentioned above is for 3 - 6 year olds - which I think is stretching it by a few years. Most 5 and 6 year olds are already in school and aren't satisfied with just playing with the magnetic letters. They are much more interested in making words to show mom and dad, and find it frustrating when they only have one of each letter. The letters also disappear all over the house, showing up on many magnetic surfaces - significantly reducing the ability to make any words at all.

Another note of caution - don't expect to use this in the car. Seems like a great idea, but it is a little large for that, and as there isn't a storage space for the accesssories - they all end up going between the car seats - argh!

I know this review seemed mostly negative which wasn't what I really intended - but I felt parents should be aware of some of the negatives, as well as the positives, before purchasing!

I'm not a big fan of this toy, and usually I love the Melissa and Doug toys.

Problem #1: there are only 26 letters, so you can't spell words that have more than one letter (or names, for example "Sara")

Problem #2: the whiteboard marker is bound to be used on placed other than the whiteboard, and of course, it stains.

Problem #3: There is no place to hold the chalk or marker.

I am going with the larger set of letters for the fridge and will use the blackboard part of this for just drawing with chalk.

We bought this for our daughter's second birthday. Here's what we like and don't like.

Pros:

1. We like the magnetic side. We bought some of the melissa and doug "magnetics in a box" sets to use- our daughter loves to play with the magnetic animals. It's one of her favorite afternoon activities. The magnetic letters that come with it will be used as she gets older.

2. Chalk side- she's had fun with this too. The chalk that comes with it is tiny and breaks so I went and bought some super large, chunky chalk and it is much better. She enjoys coloring, using a wet rag to wipe it off and start over.

3. Size- I like that it is on the smaller side. It's the perfect size to take with us when we go to a restaurant, car ride, etc.

4. We haven't used the dry erase side yet- she is to young for markers.

5. We like the little string that you can use to hang this board up. Our daughter has a child size table and chair set in the kitchen and we hung this chalk board/dry erase board up above the table. She loves to pull it down and play with it while I'm making dinner but it also looks really cute hanging on the wall above her table.

CONS:

1. Chalk is very skinny, small, cheap, breakable. You almost have to go out and buy some of the larger pieces of chalk to use that are more sturdy.

2. No ledge to put the chalk.

3. The eraser that comes with it is only for the dry erase board. It doesn't work on the chalk side so you also have to go out and buy a little chalk eraser. They aren't expensive but still, it's aggravating to have to go out and get it.

4. It would be nice if there were...

a. more dry erase colors

b. if the dry erase markers were washable.

This is a nice idea, but too small to do anything but cram all the letters on at once, and is only magnetic on the blackboard side (letters won't stick to the white board). Also, my 10 month old daughter immediately put one of the pretty, colorful letters in her mouth and that is how I discovered that the colors are from shiney paper stuck to the wood instead of durable paint - she sucked the color off of the edges within 2 minutes. All that said, you are getting a lot of stuff for $10, and the letters look nice on the fridge (just don't eat them!).

I cant believe how convenient this toy is - my son loves to draw pictures and play with magnets on both sides of this board. I told the pre-school teacher about it and she bought three for her classroom!

Santa brought this for my two-year-old, who is learning her letters. She loves to play with this and loves drawing on the chalk board. I haven't let her have the dry erase marker yet, but she does have some dry erase crayons (from a craft store) that work really well on it. My only wish is that Melissa & Doug could make this a sliding case so there would be a place to store those 30+ magnets (ABCs + numbers) that inevitably get scattered. One nice thing is that the magnets are contained within the letters, not glued on the back, so it's impossible for the magnet to come off.
