(Kids) Melissa and Doug Deluxe Standing Easel

This is, easily, the most played with toy in our house. We got this a 4 years ago when my kids were 5 and 3. They are now 9 and 6 and we’ve gone through several sets of dry erase markers and chalk. We’ve bought extra paper, paints. It’s FABULOUS and because it’s 2 sides, they both can use it at the same time. One can be drawing in chalk while the other will be drawing with markers. Then we’ll decide to paint so we’ll don our smocks and they each pick a side to paint on. The price for this is a bargain. It’s sturdy, holds up well to 2 kids pushing it around and using it constantly. Honestly, it’s the default to “I’m bored”. Even now, it never gets old.

The only complaint I have is that the clips started to break after 3 years and we had to buy chip clips out of the grocery store to replace them, but really, they lasted 3 years of daily use.

I work at home and started a home business with my kids before they started school. This is a perfect toy to put in the corner of my office so they can play quietly while I work. If you have kids. This is a MUST buy.
