Alex Desk To Go
is a portable surface for little artists who want to draw, color or write in the car, on the plane, or anywhere! The sturdy surface holds an 9″ x 12″ pad (not included), but regular 8 1/2 by 11″ paper works good too. It is easily wipeable from crayon marks or spills. The Desk to Go has two big pockets with zippers on the sides for holding kids supplies such as pens, markers and erasers. The pockets fold back and fasten for easy portability and making the desk the perfect take along for kids wherever they go.
The bean bag bottom under the flat desk portion is comfortable for kids to put on their laps and the ‘beans’ can be moved around for best positioning or leveling, if need be.
The size is not too big, nor too small. It works well even on an airplane folding tray table.
Most parents find the desk to be light enough to take with them anywhere, so it doesn’t add to a lot of luggage or being a cumbersome thing to tote around. The handles are sturdy and make it convenient for even kids to be able to carry it themselves.
A couple drawbacks are that it can prove bulky if kids pack the zippered pouches too much and also that it isn’t incredibly sturdy. Adding elements for greater strength though would probably make it heavier and not as easy to tote, so its a trade-off.
If you love having your kids express themselves and do more than just watch screens and play with tech, than you will love making this table to go available to them for their drawing, crafts, reading and writing.
