My three-year old daughter is thrilled about this easel. Nowadays she is using the chalkboard to draw letters (because she is learning the ABCs) and the magnetic board to attach the magnetic letters or to hold paper to draw (I haven't bought dry-erase markers or crayons yet). As other people say, the clip is fixed so it is not much of use, unless you put a good amount of paper, to prevent them from falling off. I am also teaching her the letters and numbers that come with the easel and I don't think they are bad, they don't fall off the board or something like that, so for me they are very useful. I would have liked for this product to come with chalk and eraser, but for the price I paid I think it's okay. All in all, a really good, sturdy product, but one that my child can move from room to room without a problem.
