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)!
