What It Is
The Cars Metal Easel is a two-in-one activity board that stands almost 3.5 feet-tall and features favorite Cars racers, including Lightning McQueen, Mater, Francesco, and Finn. There's also Flash, who apparently is in the Swedish version of Cars 2, so we're not sure many American kids will know who he is. Regardless, Cars fans may enjoy drawing on this two-sided easel. One side is a black chalkboard, and the other is a white dry-erase board. The board can be flipped from one side to the other depending on the child's preference by pulling the safety pin out. The easel has three storage pockets underneath to hold markers, chalk, and erasers, though you will have to buy those separately as none are included with the easel.
Is It Fun?
For kids who like Cars and arts and crafts, this makes a fun and creative playroom addition. Parents will like the built-in storage, and kids will like the two different ways to get creative alongside favorite Cars characters.
Who It’s For
The Disney Cars Metal Easel is for ages 3-6. Kids on the younger end of that age range may need help with the safety pin.
What To Be Aware Of
We did need to assemble this by attaching the frame and found it fairly easy to do in less than 20 minutes. However, the washers rattle a little when the easel is moved.
