REVIEW: IKEA MÅLA Easel, softwood, white (Article no: 301.678.52)

Protected by Copyscape

Author: Gauri Kshirsagar

I regularly explain concepts to my twins on a white board, which is mounted at my height therefore it becomes a bit tiresome when they want to use it.  I had been looking for an easel, which could be easily folded and stored. One of my twin prefers a white board and the other a black board with chalk when I ask them to just express themselves, to make sure they understand a concept by having them write it out or depict it, or explain concepts and ideas in a visual manner. I chose the IKEA Easel for it’s multipurpose use. The easel has a whiteboard on one side and a blackboard on the other with a space for a roll of paper in between.

PRODUCT REVIEW: ‘BROTHER DCP L2541DW’ Multi Function Wireless Monochrome Laser Printer with Network Auto Duplex Printing

Protected by Copyscape

Author: Gauri Kshirsagar

Before you read this review, please go through my article, INKJET V/S LASER: Which printer is the best option for your child.

This is an amazing all in one printing-scanning-copying machine. Offers more than other models like HP. Opted for this as it has an auto feeder, which makes copying/scanning of multiple pages much easy. In the HP machine, you had to insert and scan one page at a time. In this, you just load the pages on the feeder and it does it all automatically.

My twins love art…..it’s a form of expression for them. I had a eye on this ‘Giant Desk Tidy’ by Hamley’s for a long time, but thought the cost of 3599/- was too steep. So when Hamley’s announced their 50% sale this year, I had to buy it for the girls.
