I bought this last Christmas for my 3 year old and it was fine for the first day or so. After awhile, we needed to move the easel to another area and it falls apart as soon as you try and lift it...too many sections- it's not even worth $20. If you read the reviews, I'm the only mother who had the pleasure of purchasing!
I bought two of these and I really hate to say that Sears does not do a good job packaging big items . I get things shipped via shipping partners all the time . Rarely I have problems . But sears shipping department does a poor job packaging items . I bought two of these and the boxes were torn. Pieces were missing . I am now in the process to return one of the boxes which is a hassle.
I'm a little disappointed in this purchase. Since it was designed with smaller kids in mind I expected it to be a little better quality and less flimsy than it actually is. My son still got some use out of it but event the magnets fell apart.
My daughter got this for Christmas. It is missing the letter "V" and numbers only go up to 7. The chalk board portion is wavy/doesn't lay flat. The dry erase side is fine.
I bought this easel for my daughter and she loves it so much. Make sure to assemble it well according to the instructions on the packaging box. It is better to use a hammer. My little one likes to draw on it so much.
what you see is what you get: it turns out just like the picture and all the parts go together pretty well. i knocked off a star because it was a little hard to figure out how to attach the legs, because it took a lot of pounding to get it right. i was afraid it would break and i thought i must be doing it wrong, but i wasn't. so it took the pounding and didn't break, good i guess!
