Hi, I'm a bit confused - in one of the answers a customer care advisor says the board doesn't detatch, in another she says it does. Also the lady who kindly answered my question says there is no paper yet the product description and picture clearly show

Asked by: Julie
The board does detach so it can be used separately and there was a small pack of paper enclosed. My little boy loves this!

Can you tell me the size of the magnetic board and is it very magnetic? The one we currently have is a decent size board but the letters slide down when the board when we stand the board upright

Asked by: Debbie
The actual magnetic board is about 31cm wide by 23cm high. The magnetic letters/numbers stick to the board really well to the point of shaking it and they don't move. It's a lovely fun learning toy which is ideal for travelling with as well with the carry handle and being able to draw on it with chalk as well.

Does the chalk board section remove entirely from the base so it can be layed flat on the floor? Plus can you shut the case up with the chalk board facing out or inwards? Thank you clare

Asked by: clare
Hi Clare, The chalkboard can be removed and placed on the floor and you can also shut the case with the chalkboard facing out and inwards. I hope this helps Kind Regards
