Melissa and Doug Standing Art Easel and Supplies: A Giveaway!

Comments are Closed!

Art is a window into a soul. With the swipe of a brush a heart’s worth of meaning can come to life.

006

Creativity has the ability not only to inspire, but to heal.

013

For a kid with special needs, art can be a form of communication,  a way to master fine motor skills, all while initiating a connection to others. (Kensley was signing ‘red’ to Parker.)

008

Art carries the potential to impact positive change individuals as well as communities.

These are just a few of the reasons I’m so excited to host this review/giveaway for Melissa and Doug’s

Deluxe Floor-Standing Easel

AND

62db3687bcaa33ab783054d60f28cca4 Easel Companion Set

I’ve been looking around for an easel for Parker. Not only to use inside, but to use outside this summer too.

What better way to paint a tree than to be right smack next to one while you’re getting your Picasso on?

009

However the easel needed to meet all of my requirements:

  • It had to be affordable.
  • It had to be sturdy.
  • It had to be adjustable. (Parker is short for a 5 year old.)
  • It had to come with both a white board AND a chalk board.
  • I wanted the safety paint cups. Baby food jars might be great paint containers for some, but I could just see Parker dumping a full batch of paint on my floor using something like these.

(You may think I’ve thrown this in just to look good in this review, I haven’t. I am VERY picky about Parker’s toys.)

I’m happy to say that Melissa and Doug’s easel and supplies met each and every requirement.

015

Two things that would have been nice:

The white board also being a magnetic board.

A wee bit easier of assembly.  It isn’t hard to assemble so much as there is quite a bit to assemble.  As long as you don’t wait until 5 minutes before the birthday party or 2:00 a.m on Christmas morning you’ll be fine.

(Not that I’ve been known to do this or anything.  sigh.)
