Great Product, Great Price!,
This review is from: Melissa & Doug Deluxe Standing Easel (Toy)
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.

Great review, but what about the opinion that the chalk board is very hard to write on?

I am not the original poster of this review but I can say that I have this product and my 2 year old had no problems with the chalk board.
Very suprised to see comments re: chalk board difficulties (& the response of M&D). I don't know if I just got lucky in getting a "good" chalkboard but my guess is that based on the number of positive reviews that the "bad" chalkboard is the outlier and not the norm.

Good info about the paper roll. how much has to be removed in order to switch out the paper roll? Is a pretty quick process or does half the stand need to be disassembled?

Also looking for an answer to this question... (if either side is magnetic).
