What parent testers had to say:
The Easel it an amazing educational toy that my son loves to play with! It has far surpassed my expectation and I have already recommended it to friends!!
Not many toddler whiteboards on the market are interactive. This toy allows the child to explore both. Although the easel can be set up in an upright position where he or she can use it as a chalkboard or whiteboard, this toy can be assembled in a table top position. My little one loved the table position, and she even had the opportunity to sit while drawing, something she couldn't do with an upright easel. The digital part was the icing on the cake. It is great for teaching number and letter writing or just learning to draw. This is a much better alternative to using fingers on an iPad which seems unnatural. One down fall would be that the toy includes 1 white board marker and three different coloured chalks something I feel should be reversed. This statement is simply based on the amount of use the chalk board got compared to the white board. Although the chalk board is a great feature, the whiteboard got more use since it was often used in unison with the digital panel.
I am overall very please with the DigiArt Creative Easel. It has allowed my daughter to feel like she is "working from home" alongside me. It keeps her entertained, educated and involved thus allowing me to feel good about getting my own work done.
