I was searching for a 'classic' lasting toy for the make believe games my two grandsons ,(3 and 6), play with an assortment of model figures. Saw this and thought it seemed to fit the bill perfectly. Ordered it and prepared to be disappointed! The castle arrived very quickly, was unwrapped and built with equal speed by my husband. There was no disappointment! My grandsons unwrapped it again on Christmas morning and it has proved to be a thoroughly satisfactory home/battleground to all types of figures. I had also bought a tin of the Knights on horseback and these are also a success. I recommend the castle to any grandparent looking for an affordable, sturdy toy that will outlast the usual plastic stuff for playability and fun.
