When it comes to children preparing to learn how to read and write, the process is multi-faceted and filled with a lot of fun. For as long as I can remember I have been an avid reader and writer, and I’ve always wanted that trait to somehow embed itself into my children.
Here’s what we loved about it:
There’s nothing better than a tool that converts three ways. This is a table, whiteboard easel and blackboard easel all-in-one. The kids started using it as a table first, and the cool thing about that is the electronic part of the whiteboard doesn’t take up the entire space, meaning one could be learning to write his letters while the other was free drawing.
Vertical Surface Writing/Drawing is an Option
Using it together, the table was great. However, when using it solo, I converted it to an easel. Writing or drawing on a vertical surface is actually fantastic for young children who are developing skills like pencil grip and control. When they are writing on a vertical surface their wrist is naturally extended, and it allows them to further develop these essential skills. This is far better than scribbling on your perfectly vertical wall too…
The Panel is Uncomplicated, Simple Yet Effective
You know those toys that are too hard to use, and kids are just pushing random buttons without really understanding what they are doing? That’s not the case with the DigiArt easel. The panel is super easy to use, with each letter easy to press on the panel, the option to have music playing while you create, and of course, the volume button, which makes all the difference to parents who can’t handle the volume levels of electronic toys, i.e all parents.
The DigiArt easel provides clear instructions, and positive feedback, which encourages children to keep going. Mr.4 couldn’t wait to practice all the letters in his name. You can choose from more than 100 objects and shapes, and it will take you through the instructions on how to draw/write stroke, by stroke using the magic pen.
You can Use it as an Actual Easel
Obviously it has a digital panel on it so it’s not built to go outdoors, but it still has a clip on it so you can use it as a regular easel too. We found it extremely easy to wipe off any marks with a slightly damp cloth.
