Designed for Maximum Creativity
With the Melissa & Doug Deluxe Art Easel, children can create art with paint, chalk, pens, crayons, markers, and more, all at one convenient station. And when art time is over, parents and caregivers will appreciate the two-sided easel’s easy-to-clean design. Designed for kids ages three and up, this easel will provide hours of creative activity that is both educational and enjoyable. The easel features a bi-fold wood frame with two art stations, one on each side, which allows two children to work at one time. It’s also designed to let children experiment with several different art media: on one side is a chalkboard, on the other is a dry erase board, and in between the two easel sides is a dowel for holding a butcher paper roll. (Paper must be purchased separately.) The easel includes sturdy clips that can hold oversized individual art papers onto the easel's surfaces.

The integrated butcher paper roll makes it easy to pull the paper through either side of the easel. (Paper sold separately.)

Pull the paper through to either side of the easel for your child to paint or draw. Once the painting is complete, the paper can be torn neatly against the top of the frame and set aside to dry, and a new length of paper can be pulled down for the next art creation. The easel includes sturdy clips that can hold oversized individual art papers onto the easel's surfaces.
Art Made Easy
Early childhood education experts say that working on easels offers a variety of valuable learning opportunities for the preschool-aged child. Painting or drawing with large strokes encourages motor development while giving the child the opportunity to experiment with color, shapes, and the varied textures created by different art media.
Our preschool-aged toy tester enjoyed working on the easel, whether she was drawing with chalk or painting with poster paints. In fact, her creative output increased significantly with the easel. She especially enjoyed mixing paints to make different colors. Like many children her age, she likes standing while engaged in creative play, and the easel makes it much easier for her to draw and paint large pictures without having to reach awkwardly across a table surface or kneel on the floor.
As everyone knows, art can be messy, so that's why parents and caregivers will appreciate the easel's easy-to-clean design. The trays and art boards are held in place with screws that have large plastic knobs for easy loosening and tightening. This allows the trays and board to be easily removed, and washed individually in the sink. (We strongly recommend using only washable paints with this toy.) The easel also folds flat for easy storage: just unscrew the crossbars and close the stand for easy storage against a wall or under a bed.
The easel also includes two plastic storage trays: one tray is a long trough, perfect for holding pens or chalk; the other has four spaces for paint cups and additional sections for paint brushes and other supplies.
Unfortunately, art supplies are not included with the Melissa & Doug Deluxe Easel. However, you can purchase the following accessories separately: the Melissa & Doug Deluxe Easel Companion Set, which is a collection of art supplies for the easel; and the Melissa & Doug Deluxe Easel Paper 3-Pack, which includes three large rolls of paper.

As a side note, I read other reviews before purchasing this product, and several people mentioned that the chalkboard needs to be sanded prior to first use. NO WHERE on the instructions is this mentioned- which I found odd and leaves me to wonder if this step needs to be done. If needed, it should be printed in the instructions.
I also purchased 4 rolls of Melissa and Doug easel paper (not included), but a must have to complete this toy.
P.S. Make sure you get the accessory kit so they have everything they need to start painting and a drop cloth or your carpet won't last long.
Update: after almost a year of owning this, I still love it. I was super happy when I went to let my son paint the other day. I grabbed the Melissa & Doug paint cups that I filled months ago and haven't used since fully expecting dried up paint inside. I was very happy to find that even the thin layer of paint that was on the funnel part of the cup was completely wet! For this mom who tries to be crafty but always is scared to pull out the paint, this was a relief... 🙂
We did notice the chalkboard is difficult to use, as the chalk does not write on it very well. You have to really press hard on it to make it viewable. Upon building the easel, we realized it was missing a few of the screws. When we contacted Melissa and Doug with the issue of the chalkboard and the missing screw, they promptly mailed us a replacement screw and chalkboard. Their customer service is some of the best I have encountered. I would definitely recommend their products after experiencing their "customer is always right" response. The replacement chalkboard, however, is exactly like the last one, hard to write on. We love the easel despite the chalkboard being hard to write on, but we definitely intend to take some chalkboard paint to it, to make it usable for years to come. It is a wonderful product, but I rated it 4 stars because we have to go the extra step of painting it to make it more user friendly.
