Make it Personal

Give her new work space “that something special” when you personalize the Melissa and Doug wooden easel. The paint trays, multi-media surfaces (paper, chalk, and dry-erase), adjustable height levels and kid-safe paper cutter are all must-haves but when you add her name ($1.99 extra) to the top, it’ll really feel like her own art studio.
