I bought this for the kids as something to keep them busy and spark there artistic ability. They loved to use it but they quickly grew too big for it. This item is not adjustable so once you grow out of it thats it. We ended up taking the board off and using it still. The kids use it to keep lists like things they want to buy or things like that. Some positives would be that it is light weight and portable, it can be folded up and slid under a bed or in a closet with ease. Its easy to clean and even without the proper eraser a wet paper towel would do the job and not leave residue or residual ink there like some boards if you don't clean them often. When this item came out it was ridiculously priced but I do believe the price has dropped significantly. I would recommend this product for families as a great way to get kids to be more artistic, organized and away from there phone or tv.
