As one of the top online toy retailers, we have access to unprecendented quantities of product review data. One of the key ways that we use this data is by associating our products to the specific ages and genders of the kids who are playing with them. Whereas most retailers must rely upon manufacturer suggested ages (i.e. 3+), we take actual customer usage and share it with you here so that you can choose the perfect toy or game.
But how does this help me? You can use these graphs as a general measure of it's appropriateness for a given age and gender. While this information is generally accurate, it should not be used as an absolute answer. For instance, many dinosaur toys are purchased for boys, however, that doesn't mean that it's inappropriate for a girl who happens to like dinosaurs.
NOTE: The orange color in the charts above indicate ages that are LESS than the manufacturer suggested age. Please purchase at your discretion if your child is younger than 4 years of age.

This product is great, but thought it would be easier to fold without having to take it a part. Also, it was not clear that you needed special paper to use the easel. SO, when it was time to use the easel, my daughter wasn't happy that she had to wait to use it. The quality is good and easy to put together.
Great value for the money

For some reason, my kids really enjoy coloring on the walls. There is something alluring about coloring or writing on a vertical surface. Experts also say that easels (or vertical writing surfaces) are excellent for young children to develop motor skills necessary later on down the line for printing and writing. I shopped all over the place (toy stores, craft stores, online, local shops, etc), and this is the best deal for a sturdy, adjustable kids' easel. My only complaint is that the white board is not great -- unfortunately, it does not erase completely, even though we used the dry erase marker and eraser from the available M&D Easel Accessories set. I have tried all sorts of other dry erase markers and cleaners, but to no avail. The chalkboard is not that great either -- this is best for use with paper and paint/markers/crayons/pencils.
