5.0 out of 5 stars Exceeded expectations by far. 13 Jun 2012
By Dave B

Durability: 4.0 out of 5 stars    Educational: 4.0 out of 5 stars    Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I was determined to spend over £120 on a Playmobil castle, then I found a wooden castle from amazon that required self assembly for about £55.
After reading reviews about the design giving problems if you needed to move it around I wasn't so sure, although I still wanted to buy it as my original plan had been vetoed by the boss.

My wife then found this castle at nearly a third of my original budget. It looked okay on the reviews, and being ready assembled it offered some advantages over the "Le Toy Van Excalibur". Understatement of the year.

This castle is "Awesome" to quote my five year old daughter. "It's not just good, it's awesome Daddy!".

I have no idea how they can produce something so lovely for an affordable price, but they've done it.

From my daughter's viewpoint, it's sturdy, gives tons of standing platforms for her Playmobil characters (7.5cm tall), is in perspective for Playmobil accessories, has a secret trap door / jail to capture baddies, has a separate tower that doubles as a baddies lookout/castle, has a working drawbridge, is beautifully decorated and has a balcony for knights to lookout from when my enemy knights attack.

From my viewpoint this is a lovely piece. There is so much character in the design, the decoration is much better that the picture shows, and the swing open design allows the child to really "get inside" the castle and play from the castle viewpoint.
The piano hinge is riveted on, the balsa(?) wood structure has been carefully sanded to give soft edges and with so many places to stand her characters I have been forced to concede that she may need more knights.

As a parent I have no problem recommending this product and feel sure that when my newborn son reaches 5 he will get years of enjoyment out of it himself.

I hope this review helps you when deciding what to buy.

Cheers, Dave.

We were looking to get a wooden castle for my son's 3rd birthday. We had originally got one from ASDA which we were very disappointed with and sent back as it kept falling apart. We then ordered this castle which was slightly more expensive but well worth every penny. My son loves it and plays with it loads. He had the knight set from ELC to go with it, but he also loves playing with his Postman Pat, Go Diego and basically anything that will fit in it. It is hardwearing and as it is all fixed together so it does not fall apart!!! The design is brilliant and best of all it arrived all fully assembled brilliant, I would well recommend this to anybody who is looking to buy a wooden castle.

Durability: 4.0 out of 5 stars    Educational: 3.0 out of 5 stars    Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
My little sister got this for her birthday and although she's getting older now, she still really enjoys playing with castles. All the figures that can come with it are wonderful too! Especially the troll!
The castle came all in tact and made up but it is not very heavy so was easy to move about. The pattern on it is simple but efficient and the dungeon with the trap door is a wonderful idea. The side pulls open so you can expand the playing area and all the turrets are great for the imagination to set up an army.
Even me and my dad have enjoyed this castle.
I really do recommend it for boys and girls of any age between 3 and 10 (and 40)!

5.0 out of 5 stars totally satisfied 16 April 2011
Durability: 5.0 out of 5 stars    Educational: 5.0 out of 5 stars    Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Bought it for my 4 years old nephiew.
He liked too much and he plays for hours.
It has many interesting parts, balcony, windows, removable turret and he never gets bored.
It suits with all playmobil figures and this is an extra advantage.
I would strongly recommend it to a friend.

3.0 out of 5 stars Nice castle 18 Aug 2013
Verified Purchase
I will start by saying this is a good priced castle, however it looks much bigger on the picture than it does at home. Not particularly hard wearing - have had to glue a few bits together which we're broken on delivery. My 4 year old does enjoy playing with it though.

5.0 out of 5 stars Birthday Present! 12 Aug 2011
Durability: 5.0 out of 5 stars    Educational: 4.0 out of 5 stars    Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I bought this for my son's third Birthday and he loves playing with it and uses it with all his other toys as well as just his knights - only comment would be I prefer the knights from the Early Learning Centre than the Melissa and Doug accesories for it. Overall a fantastic product and great value for money.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Castle! 30 Dec 2009
Durability: 4.0 out of 5 stars    Educational: 4.0 out of 5 stars    Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I bought this for my 3 year old son and I'm so happy with it. I was looking for a castle which wasn't just good to look at but that had lots of interest. This castle has a balcony, removeable turret, lots of windows, a trap door, a sliding dungeon door, a working drawbridge, turrets figures can stand in, a staircase and the best feature of all which is the fact that its hinged and can open up. Great to play with closed or open. The ELC set of knights and Simba knights and dragon I bought to go with it are a good size to use with the castle. The castle was bought for my son's Christmas so I was concerned that it wasn't going to live up to how it looked online but I wasn't disappointed. It arrived quickly, well packaged and already assembled.
