THE ULTIMATE PRINCESS CASTLE
on 14 October 2009
What a gorgeous princess castle this is for any little girl. I've bought this for my little one for Christmas and am delighted with the quality.
First up, unlike many princess castles, this one comes ready assembled. Just take it out of the box. No fiddling around screwing things together and wondering where all the pieces are and having to figure out complex instructions! There are a few turrets which are removeable but if you look on the bottom of your castle, it will show you where these go. Very easy.
It is beautiful, made from thick (plywood I guess) wood and hand-painted with pink and green accents - trailing vines, brickwork, flourises. So pretty to look at without being sickly. Good enough to grace our living room which is where it will be going.
A very large castle to suit any girl I would think from 3-8 years old. It can be played with folded together with a large courtyard on the inside or opened right out to make one huge, long castle. Whatever your princess prefers.
Lots of detail with staircases, turrets, balconies, open windows and doors. My favourite part is the drawbridge which can be pulled down or wound up again with a wooden handle. There is also a sliding door which you could use as a jail or (if you're not keen on that idea) maybe a horse stable.
Really lovely and I've seen plenty of castles which are much more expensive but not so impressive as this one.
Melissa and Doug impress yet again!
