From Playthings' AGT Guide:
"Chalk/Bulletin Board Set
Only a week to go until the geography report is dues! Your American Girl and her classmates have everything they need to plan their presentation:
Two sided chalk/cork bulletin board, 5 pieces of chalk, felt eraser, pointer, pull-down U.S. map, 20 pushpins (the chalk came in a little blue cardboard box, and the pushpins came in a plastic container)
$28 GSAB discontinued 2001"
This is a must for any little girl who plays school (or any collector who loves to set up school scenes)! The chalkboard and the bulletin board are very realistic, though I do prefer the bulletin board side better. The chalkboard can be a bit difficult to write on. It is doable, but the chalkboard's material isn't quite like the real thing. The map is the cutest thing. It pulls down just like its big counterpart and hooks onto the ledge of the chalkboard. The only downside with this is that pulling the map down makes the board top-heavy, resulting in it "flipping" on you. To avoid this, I suggest putting the board against a wall.
I wouldn't have gotten this had I not gotten an amazing deal on it at a thrift store ($2), but it does make a great addition to Kit's bedroom.

(as you can see, I needed a basket to prop up the board, so it wouldn't flip)

There is a little wooden peg that fits into a hole on the side that keeps the board stable so it will not flip. The peg is small and unattached so it would be easy to lose. It should not be difficult to find a substitute, though.
