At the last moment, we found this... the perfect gift for my 5-year old grandson! We only wish we had found it a couple of years ago, because he absolutely LOVES it! It's perfect! The best part of my review is to let you know how GREAT Step2's shipping is. I had already missed every shipping deadline for Christmas from every major department & toy store that carried this product when I decided to go straight to the Step2 website to order it directly... too late, we missed their deadline by 2 days... but I decided to order from them anyway. We thought there was no way to receive it on time. We had decided to give him the art supplies 'on time', and tell him the 'big gift' art desk would be arriving a couple of days later... We were absolutely shocked when this large package arrived at the door BEFORE Christmas!! STEP2 really did a fantastic job in fulfilling this order! Not only is their product a superior choice... but I can assure you, the order fulfillment and shipping is second to no one! Thanks so much Step2...

I bought 3 of these art desks for my kids and waited until Christmas to be put together and decided to put them together a day early. After getting them all out of the boxes, one of the desks was missing screws and the light! I was very disappointed because now I have to leave the lights off of all the desks and I have to go buy screws on Christmas Eve. NOT VERY HAPPY ABOUT THIS!!!!

          This is probably the easiest step 2 product i've assembled. It also keeps my son from coloring on books or walls...for now anyway. I really like the storage under the surface and the little shelf under the desk top. My son has already gotten marker all over this desk and it wipes off with just your finger and some spit so its extremely easy to clean!

            My grandson loves it and spends a great deal of time at this desk. He loves that he can get his own paints, crayons, and books without the aid of a parent and that makes him feel grown up. My daughter loves the fact that it holds so much and is easy to wipe and clean up. A great buy that he will be able to use for several years ahead. As well, we can pass it on to younger cousins. That's the quality of the construction.

              I bought this for my 5 yr.old grand-daughter. It is absolutely a great product. She spends many hours doing art projects..It has a great amount of storage and something that will grow with her. This is one of many Step 2 products we have purchased. They are well constructed and will last a lifetime..I would highly recommend this product.

              Patricia W on Nov 6, 2014
              The desk has multiple compartments for storing art supplies, and also has a built in light! My grandson is going to love that feature. This piece is made of sturdy plastic which appears indestructible. I like that it comes with a stool, instead of a chair, which will hopefully take up less space in his bedroom. The price was less expensive than from other stores too.
              Jane L on Oct 29, 2014
              Because I liked it.
              Robert K on Oct 26, 2014
              For my two granddaughters. I researched a lot and found this to be exactly what I wanted them to have and since they're turning 3 and 4 they each needed their own and they will use them for years to come I'm sure.

              Sheri S on Jan 26, 2014
              I bought for my Grandson X-mas Gift, He'll be starting school next year. This is a durable cleanable multi function desk, good price to. The erasable easel is my preference but! this one has alot more storage, so I figured the easel on this one can be hinged on the reverse side to get the same use, a flip up easel, I'd perfer the chair with the back for support, for him sitting at desk, for the most part children can be unpredictable with paint and such, being washable is great. Thank You.
              Faye R on Jan 20, 2014
              Saw this at a clients house and thought my grandson would like a space to keep his are supplies. It looked sturdy and had great space. A desk that he would not quickly out grow. A 3rd year birthday present.

              I like all of the storage areas. I would have preferred the Dlx Art Master desk as it comes with a chair, but this one is taller, and it costs less.

              sandra k on Dec 14, 2014
              Does this desk come with any accessories shown in the picture?
              Nanax2 on Nov 30, 2014
              BEST ANSWER: No. It's just the desk and the stool. And the "light"doesn't work very well.
              What is the difference between the Art Master and the Deluxe? The deluxe looks to be slightly bigger but they look about the same, is it just the size difference?
              A shopper on Sep 24, 2013
              BEST ANSWER: In addition to the difference in color palette, the sizing is a little different between these two art desks. The Art Master Activity Desk is taller and the Deluxe Art Master Desk is wider. The seating unit on the Deluxe also has a back vs. a stool that comes with the Art Master Activity. Please use this chart as reference to the difference in size of the two art desks http://blog.step2.com/2013/05/art-desk-easel-dimensions.cfm
              What are the dimensions of the dry erase board?
              A shopper on Aug 12, 2013
              BEST ANSWER: Unfortunately, the desk is in Oregon with my granddaughter. We are in Illinois. I will try to find put for you.
              What is the height of the writing surface (from the floor)?
              Shani on Mar 26, 2014
              BEST ANSWER: I dont have it here as I gave it to grandchild, but it is approximately 24 inches or so. He loves it and can grow with it.
              Could you please inform the box dimentions and weight?
              Fernanda V on Sep 25, 2013
              BEST ANSWER: The box dimensions for this Art Master Activity Desk are 36" x 25.25" X 27". The weight of this package is 27 lbs. As a friendly FYI, all box dimensions for any of our products can be found on the product details page. On that tab, you will see a link to a .PDF file for "Instruction Sheets".
              What is the difference between this desk and the deluxe art master? Other then the deluxe is slightly larger they seem about the same.
              A shopper on Sep 24, 2013
              BEST ANSWER: I bought 2 desks, the Creative Projects table as our youngest son has 2 boys and the Art Master Activity Desk - as our middle son has only 1 child in this age category.
              Both are still in use today - they have be well loved and used daily - in fact one is used on a home school basis!
              They are sturdy, clean up nicely and a very good buy!
              I would certainly recommend either of these products!

              What age is this up to?
              A shopper on Sep 13, 2013
              BEST ANSWER: We use ours in the 3-4 year old classrooms. I think it may be too small for Kindergarteners and we have some taller PreK students that are a bit big for it.
              Is the plastic the product is made from recyclable after its lifetime?
              A shopper on Jun 24, 2013
              BEST ANSWER: We checked the box (still have it) but it doesn't indicate a recycle # on it. I checked the Step2 slide/gym (but not the bottom) and didn't see any recycle marks on that either. Next time at granddaughters will check the art desk for a recycle symbol. I would think Step2 could answer this for you though - they're based in Ashland, OH and they should know. Sorry couldn't give you a definite on this. I'd think it is recyclable unless damaged by chemicals of some sort though. Good luck. It's a great art desk, granddaughter uses it all the time (4 1/2yrs old). Loves her slide/gym too and her Step2 Princess Castle bed also! Good stuff, lasts forever! The Zans
              Hi, I saw on other images, on other websites, this desk but with a chair rather than a stool and I was wondering if there was any way to order the chair instead (?) because I'm not sure if my little fully understand sitting up without lean back yet.

              BEST ANSWER: This desk is now only available with a stool. Our older model, that has since been discontinued, featured a chair.
              What is the difference between this and the Deluxe desk, just that deluxe is slightly bigger?

              BEST ANSWER: The Deluxe is a little larger, has a little more leg room, comes with a chair instead of a stool, and obviously the colors are different. I hope that helps you to choose the best art desk!
              I washed this product and have some water in the leg of the base. Does anyone have an idea how to remove the plastic plugs on the bottom of the leg? Is there a special tool for Step 2 toys I need?

              BEST ANSWER: The vent plugs are not meant to be removed. To remove excess water from inside this art desk, we recommend drilling a ¼” hole at the bottom away from any seams. This will not affect the integrity of the product.
