Updated review from a seller
on 17 April 2012
I think the manufacturers must have taken feedback into account, as I cannot recognise the present item in the 2010 review posted. The board itself is wooden, painted black with blackboard paint, and there is a thicker plain wood surround to hold it by, which is all robustly glued together. There is a red cord firmly embedded into one side of the frame to carry it with. It comes with a pack of chalks, and there is a mini eraser block with black felt glued to one side. It comes in a natty net bag which is quite generously sized so can be used to store it in after use (however please note that there is no drawstring to the bag). Size is approx 21cm by 16.5cm. It all seems very robust to me - I can exert full adult bending pressure with two hands with no signs of distress whatever - so I think a child would have to try extremely hard to damage it. The wooden surround is approx 3mm proud of the board on either side, and can flex a little, so I can put the board on a hard floor and stand on the middle of it with trainers and my full weight and it causes no damage. I think this is a really neat little item, and I am very pleased to be able to stock it, I hope you will be pleased with it too.
