Disclosure: I received this exchange for my honest review.
Before I go into my review I will explain why I recommend this as a great Holiday Gift Guide item for the 2015. Each year we have more and more electronic items for our kids to enjoy from tablets to video games, kids want to have something that is shiny and sucks in their attention. Unfortunately a lot of these masters of engineering are sucking the creativity right out of our children. When a toy does everything for you it's hard to use your imagination to expand it beyond the here and now. I like the idea of giving kids a happy space they can do their own thing artistically and the Easel from USArtSupply is item to give them in order to give them that space.
I will go over the good things about this before I mention the one thing that I didn't like. The Flip-Over Children's paint & Chalkboard easel is actually a really well designed easel that gives your child multiple medias. With three individual bags at the bottom for their various crayons, paint brushes and other art supplies and 5 individual cups for finger paints easily clip on some paint for your own kiddos art. The chalkboard is good sized and the high is perfect for ages 3 and up in my personal opinion as they would be able to reach and color on it. I think this is a great tech free gift for the upcoming holiday gift giving season and would recommend it to anyone looking to help their child or grandchild color appropriately.
The only draw back I found from this is solid construction was the actually assembly process. Unfortunately the instructions were the only pictures kind of instructions and small numbers. It was easy enough to figure out, but if they had added a few words that would have made a 15 minute process 10. Which I can imagine may drive a few people irritated.
