    Easel for painting - where to look?

    Hi! Where can I get a nice easel for painting work for a toddler? Just a simple thingy where we can clip paper and a place to put the paint pots etc. The ELC one at Bumps to Babes is v expensive and ugly. Any other suggestions? Thanks!

    My friend who studies art always gets the art supply from Artland in Wanchai. They also carry art & craft products for little ones.

    Toys R us definitely have them. Got one for my little sister a couple of years ago

    Also try Metrobooks at Elements.
    I've seen easels there although I dont know if they would be age appropriate lots of canvases though.

    Wanted to update in case helpful: I ended up buying a desk top easel with some clips on the top to hold the paper in place -from Artland and it has worked out really well. It was cheaper than the full size one (only around $150), it folds down completely flat so is very easy to store, and works just the same as the larger one, except that there is no place for paint jars etc, but that makes little difference if you have a table the right height as the paint jars etc can go on that. Biggest advantage is that it is really portable and doesn't take up that extra room that the full size one would, adding to the rest of the STUFF that one seems to accumulate with toddlers around!
