Young Van Gogh’s Illuminated Dry Erase Easel unleashes one’s creative powers

van-gogh-easelThe imagination and mind of a child is truly a wonderful thing. In fact, give them something as simple as a cardboard box, and they will be able to turn it into a time machine or a spaceship, or simply something else that amazes you. When they are bored, do not throw them a tablet or smartphone to play games with, but rather, how about trying a sheet of paper and some crayons? If you think that doing so is too messy to clean up afterwards, then the $59.95 Young Van Gogh’s Illuminated Dry Erase Easel might be worth looking up as an alternative to unleash their artistic tendencies.

The Young Van Gogh’s Illuminated Dry Erase Easel is an illuminating easel that lights up a child’s illustrations. It will do so by an integrated backlight, as the black dry-erase board enhances vivid artwork created thanks to the quartet of dry-erase neon markers that comes with the package. When you need to start over or are done with your masterpiece, the board can be wiped clean with a paper towel like a traditional dry-erase board. The mounted marker tray prevents the art instruments from getting lost and the easel folds up for compact storage. Some assembly is required, with a trio of AA batteries powering the Young Van Gogh’s Illuminated Dry Erase Easel.
