Rated 5 out of 5Â by Suki Best present for a budding artist!
I just bought this for my grandsons 5th birthday. He uses the dry erase board to practice his alphabet and numbers. We write them and he traces the letters and then writes them by himself to the side. He loves to color his Scooby Doo pictures, cuts them out and pastes them on to construction paper. He stores his special crayola markers on the wheel with the five holes and regular markers and dry erase markers at the top. He has storage for his construction paper, drawing paper glue stick, safety scissors, crayons, paints, books and coloring books. The light works better than I thought it would after reading some reviews before I bought the art desk.
Rated 5 out of 5Â by deb great desk
this is a great desk. i set up my basement with centers, and i used the other step 2 art desk as an art desk for both kids, and i set up this desk as a kind of discovery/science center. my 5 year old is into experiments and stuff like that. i love this desk, it has lots of room and it will grow with them, will probably serve as a homework desk for a few years. i love the compartment under the desktop, its like a secret and even better, the 1 year old doesnt get into it. i like this better than the double desk, more compartments, but the double is great for the 5 and 3 year olds to work together. all in all, a great desk.
Rated 4 out of 5Â by Teacher and Mom My son LOVES it!
My three year old son made a bee-line for this desk on Christmas morning. He loves his "big-boy art desk" and especially enjoys turning on the little overhead light by himself. I love the deep wells on both sides of the desk as the hold lots of coloring books and paper. I would have given it 5 stars but for the difficult assembly. Instead of pre-drilled holes, there were only dimples in the plastic where the screws were supposed to enter. To secure the top piece, I also used longer screws that I had at home instead of the ones included to hold it together more tightly. Overall, though, I really love the look and functionality of this product! My son would definitely agree!
Rated 5 out of 5Â by Nana Great Desk!!!
This desk is perfect, even though we're not using it as a desk right now. We purchased it as a gift for our 3 year old & 15 month old grandsons. We purchased a Step 2 Kitchen to keep at our our house and the boys loved the kitchen so much that I ordered the desk to use as a store. The storage is great! - We use small bins to hold plastic food, and we put play money and a small cash register on top of the white lift-up part of the desk. I used a small amount of museum hold under the lift-up part since they don't use it as a desk yet. We also bought a STEP 2 Shopping Cart which is great - very steady.
