Love, love, love, this easel. Multiple activities all in one. Perfect portable organized art center. Folded foot print with trays on is 14 inches with trays removed 6 inches. Trays continue to hold chalk/dry erase markers/paint cups with lids on even in the folded position.
Perks: Draw or paint for 2. Comes with paper holder. Clips hold paper in place. And bar to pin paper in place & tear it off too. Chalk board. Dry Erase Board. Trays on both sides permit 1 or 2 to paint without fights over My Red Paint Cup/Brush. Clips to hold paper in place while painting/coloring.
Cons/But would happen with any easel: Not for the child who is hard on toys. If they put too much pressure on the trays (paint holder/chalk holder), they will break off. The pro is that you can call and order a replacement tray.
We have had paint/creative play dates and initially our friends thought I was crazy until they saw how well it worked. We could actually talk for 10 minutes at a time instead of chasing our 2 year olds in different directions. Yes!!!!

This easel came with stripped screws, and was not made properly to have all of the parts lined up correctly., making it impossible to be put together correctly. It is very poorly and cheaply designed and does not work well in a childcare center. We have a few in the center and they have been easily destroyed and taken apart by the children. I will not be purchasing any more Melissa and Doug easels.

      Comments about Melissa and Doug Childrens Deluxe Standing Easel:

      Long screws are not long enough. Both trays are too short to fit. Paper roll dowel too short. Pre-assembled screws on hinges loose and pop out. We can't assemble it as instructed with pieces supplied.

            This easel is our kids favorite item in their playroom. Product is listed at a good price. It is functional for younger kids and fun to use. Enjoy seeing my kids paintings and posting them on our wall of art. We purchased it with the companion set. Great for beginners. Can always buy supplies individually.

                Talk about entertainment, this easel offers the perfect opportunity for two little boys to play peek-a-boo while painting masterpieces, to feel free to make a mess, and to delight in their own creativity! As a grandparent looking for a unique gift, I think I hit the jackpot on this one! The easel is sturdy, both sides are angled for easy use, and it adjusts for growth over a period of years. I definitely recommend this purchase.

                      The easel was easy to set up, clear instructions and very sturdy. I like that it's very colorful and that it also has 3 level height positioning to keep up as my kids grow. The price was good when you compare features to other easels.

                          Purchased this easel last XMAS, and my 4.5 yr old STILL enjoys painting "masterpieces" on this easel. The bottled paint stays wet while stored, although once squeezed into a cup it will dry if not covered up after a day. But, one only needs less than an 1/8 cup of paint in their accessory cups with which to paint and it reduces paint waste. And, buy some extra paint, cups, and paper, too. The paint brush hairs could be of higher quality, but they work good enough. It was really easy to put together, too. It's a good idea to cover your floors. You know Moms, our kiddos are going to drop as much paint on the floor as they will on the paper. LOL! Be prepared.

                          Customer Q & A

                          3 Questions About This Product
                          Q: "I see this has a locking paper holder. Where is the paper held and does it drop down over the boards?"
                          A: The paper is held in the middle of the easel in between the 2 drawing boards.  The paper will feed through the back and thread through the top so that it drops down over the boards.  If you look at the alternate images there is a better image of the side with paper included.
                          Q: "I love this easel, however i need an easel that has one side magnetic, so I can put magnetic letters and words on it. Do you have such an item?"
                          A: We have reviewed our website and item #BRM015 or #HOO164 may be what you are looking for.
                          Q: "What is included with the companion set?"
                          A: The Optional Companion Set includes a paper roll, tempera paints that are washable and non-toxic, molded paintbrushes that are comfortable and easy to hold, durable paint cups, each of which features a lid that serves as a convenient paintbrush rest, 10 sticks of brightly colored chalk, dry erase board marker and eraser.
