Review written by Toddle About VIP Club member, Laura Griffiths.
We recently received the Hape All-in-1 Easel through to review and although there are quite a few less expensive easels out there, I feel this one is well worth paying the extra money for. I think where the value for money lies with this product is the fact you can adjust the height so it grows with your child and ultimately this should mean it gets played with for longer.
My daughter loves arts and crafts and she was particularly impressed by the fact that both the chalk and white boards are magnetic and she can also paint and draw with her normal crayons with the paper roll dispenser feature. We did some painting and it was so much easier not to have to sit at a table and having to wrestle the paint off of her to avoid spillages. The handy paint pots meant my independent toddler felt in full control over here masterpiece!
The product feels very good quality and is well made, my only issue is that our play area has a hardwood floor so it does move when she presses too hard on the easel. I got around this by putting down a wipeable mat which also spared the floor from any drips as well so ultimately it wasn’t too much of an issue.
I would highly recommend this product as a great investment, it certainly kept my daughter entertained for quite a while!
