If your child had all the power, nothing would be only one thing. Cars would also be robots, trees would also be wise scholars, school would happen in an amusement park and vegetables would taste like hot fudge cakes. Meet 'em half way and give them some animal furniture.
Got the easel last time. Its good quality. The chalkboard isn't fantastic but it's good enough. It has a dry erase board and paper too. It is rather short, by about 7-8 I think most kids would outgrow it.
