As kids, chalkboards were just for to the classroom, a place for the teacher to write our homework assignments. Now that we're older we know better--chalkboards are made for at-home doodling.

These chalkboard designs range from t-shirts to chalkboard paint and definitely take the chalkboard out of the classroom once and for all.

Implications - Creativity is an important aspect of many people's lives, and products that allow consumers to be creative give them the ability to express themselves. Having something such as a chalkboard wall or appliance gives the consumer the chance to show and share their creativity to friends and family. Not only that, the fact that an object has more than just one purpose also makes it more valuable.
