Review: I have two- and four-year-olds. On nice days I pull out the easel in the front yard, give each kid three different activity paints (small amounts in plastic cups) and chubby brushes, and turn on garden hose (just tiny little stream). Oh man, they have fun! Of cause, they have to wear bathing suits for this. There is no fights, no looking for mom/dad, no crying, no running away - solid 40 min of fun for them with me and my husband enjoying time together. This is what they do: paint with brushes and fingers on the easel and themselves, delute paint and splash it on themselves and easel, play as if they are in an art store selling/buying paints, play as if they are in a cafe selling/buying juice, then circle repeats, and it really goes on and on. By the time they are done, the girls, the easel, paint brushes and cups are almost clean. I am so happy we have this easel, and so are my girls.
Bottom Line: "Yes, I would recommend this to a friend."
Non-rust, metal powder-coated frame is ideal for indoors or out. Clear acrylic panels allow children to paint directly onto easel surface - no paper needed!

Each side adjusts to convert to toddler size easel. Can be used indoors or outdoors. Easel is easy to clean - hose down or wash with soap and water.
