Product details

This easel has a black chalkboard on one side and a whiteboard on the other – perfect for creating and learning.

Also suitable for small children since the drawing area is large (31x21") and close to the floor.

Whiteboard pens, chalk, and other small things can be stored in the easel's two removable trays.

Creating and being creative makes you calm and focused, and is extra nice after a day of school and activities.

Working with their hands improves your child's ability to learn, and sharpens their fine motor skills.

Easy to assemble, move – and store when creativity needs a break.

An ideal gift for children who love to do arts and crafts.

Of course everything in the MÅLA series is non-toxic – we care just as much about the creative minds of the next generation as you do.

Kids boardRoberto G.Great board for children. They love to draw on it5
okayChau V.white broad was cheap, can't wipe off marker color without wet clothes or so.1
Love it!Karina R.Simple but too practice and perfect for my girl draws!5
Excellent value for the moneyANTONELLACompared to other kid's easels on the market, this is an excellent value. To be even more usable than it already is, I wish it provided a way to tear off the paper from the roll.4
Art easelmariaThe easel feels sturdy and well made. It’s a good size for a two years old but beautiful large enough that it will last for several years of use. Definitely a good value compared to other kids easels available on the market.5
Quality could have been better.MandeepQuality could have been better.4
Only wished the roll ofROSEMARYOnly wished the roll of paper was included with the item never can find it in the store.5
Not badThamazghaNot bad2
Flimsy constructionSIDI realize that this is an IKEA product so I should not be expecting awesome durability however, even after the IKEA discount in quality I still found this product to be severely lacking. To the point that I actually am taking the time to review it because it is that bad of a value for money . The board is not at all sturdy and it feels like it will break at any moment. The attachment to keep the two pieces of board in an inverted V shape, has a lot of flex and feels like it will actually break the board, then provide any structural integrity.1
Great for the priceJWe needed a quick easel for a toddler that is close to 2. This is perfect for her at her age. I imagine if she takes a liking to art we will purchase a slightly nicer one as she grows (places to hold paint etc) but this functions well enough for its purpose. I will say the chalk board doesn’t really work as advertised. It’s wood with chalk paint that doesn’t really work. Again we don’t care-cheap price and works well for crayons.5
Love this!BethanyThe price sold us! Can’t believe you get a two sided easel, whiteboard and chalkboard for $30! Great quality!!5
ExcellentSarahVery useful to teach my toddler daughter numbers and letters and she is able to express herself drawing freely.5
So many usesLIVMy kids haven't stopped playing with this since we got it. Also great bored for home school.4
Markers hard to eraseDinThe markers i bought together with this at IKEA are very hard to erase. Not sure it’s marker issue or the board2
Young artists will loveSandyThe one improvement I’d request would be to make the legs adjustable for height - so it can grow with the young artist.5
Young budding ArtistsdougPurchased for grandson - he's 5 - already creating beautiful things. Quite satisfied and keeps the mess off of other things like carpets.5
Son loves itMERVESon loves it5
Could be more better ,SarithaCould be more better , but good for the price4
SundayMónicaGood value for the money. Bought it use as a portable sign. Love that one side is a white board and the other is a blackboard5
MÅLA Easel, softwood

For artists in all sizes

After more than 20 years in the range, the MÅLA easel is a real hero that millions of children have loved. But nothing is so good that it can’t be improved. So, we rolled up our sleeves and tweaked several important details. After that, we asked some parents what they thought of the prototype. Their input helped us make the easel even smarter.

“Through the years, we’ve got some comments on the easel. For example, that the paper roll was difficult to roll up, and that it was complicated to fold up and store away the easel.” tells Jorge Omar Santoyo Henaine, who works with product development at Children’s IKEA.

Good can get better

Together with the supplier and designers, we didn’t only manage to correct the problems; we also lowered the price and extended the drawing surface down to the floor. “It makes it possible for smaller children to reach a larger surface, and older children can sit down on the floor when they draw and paint.” But was the easel good enough now, or could it get even better? “To find out, we invited parents in a store to test and comment. This way, we could ask questions and listen to their reflections.”

Easier to paint – and clean up

Parents appreciated that the tray for pens, brushes, and paint is made of easy to maintain plastic instead of wood. But they thought it should be on both sides so two children can draw and paint at the same time. And one parent said: “My child spills and makes a mess, I want to be able to rinse the tray in the sink.” “It convinced us that it’s better if you can remove the trays. We want to make life more simple and more creative for both the children and their parents, and to succeed it’s crucial to involve them like we did that day in the store.”


Creative geniuses come in small sizes!

Paint! Draw! Shape! The MÅLA series has everything a child needs to unleash their imagination and creativity – and store drawings. There’s an easel, colorful modelling dough, grip-friendly brushes and scissors that suit tiny hands, and paint that is easy to mix and wash off. No nagging your child to put caps back on the felt-tip pens – they survive 3 days without caps. And everything’s non-toxic. Since we care just as much about the next generation’s creative minds as you do.
