We bought this when we ordered the easel. It is an ok starter set as it has most of what your toddler will need to use his easel. Then marker arrived broken - the point pressed in the first time we touched it to the whiteboard and we had to throw it away. The chalk is horrible - it makes a lot of dust. We will definitely buy another brand ASAP. The paint cups seem very nice - this is the only item we will probably keep. The paintbrushes are only ok - the hairs come off after only a couple of uses. It is very nice that the brushes are color coded with the paint and the paint cups. The set only comes with one eraser - we had to get another for the whiteboard. The one it comes with works well for the chalkboard.
