      Disadvantages

      • Flimsy

      Much better can be found.

      I bought this for my son last year as he loves to draw so I thought this would be ideal, however it wasn't advertised as being a tabletop easel so when it arrived I was quite shocked by how small the box was. Despite it not being what I thought it was I decided to keep it (short of time). I built it up and immediately noticed how flimsy it was.

      The main board is double sided and framed with nice coloured wood around the edges, this then fits onto a frame with chunky plastic screws, and a small shelf sits underneath, on which to pop the bit's of chalk, magnets etc.

      My son wanted to flip the white side over to the chalk board side, so I unscrewed it and changed it over, the shelf fell off (not screwed into place and no option to either) after doing this process a few times, the board just seemed to get looser and looser until it collapsed, in all honestly I wish I had sent it back when I realised it wasn't quite what I expected.

      I wouldn't bother with this, the board by itself is still usable but that means I spent nearly 20.00 on a small chalk board! Not ideal.

      It's not a great design, the wood frame and plastic screws are useless and it's just flimsy. The shelf made from a strong card board surrounded by a wooden frame and it was this that mainly gave the stability so again, flimsy!

      Not good.

      Thanks
