Fairy Princess Castle

Reviewer: Jane

Fairy Princess Castle

Rating:

Best feature:

Good size, easily assembled and disassembled for storage


Worst feature:

Only comes in pink

Granny's view:

Toys which allow children to be creative and use their imagination have to be the best choices for parents and grandparents. It is a proper child sized play space – big enough to accommodate three or four children yet small enough to hide away in and feel protected. The castle comes as a very easily assembled kit consisting of wooden poles, sturdy plastic connectors, small screws to tighten up the joins and a strong, waterproof canvas covering which slips easily over the frame and becomes the castle. There is a door to access and exit and windows on three of the hexagonal sides. The door and the windows, are pieces of fabric which can be lifted aside and dropped down, can be secured from the inside with strips of Velcro to make the interior seem to be a private and secret place. The castle only took my son ten minutes to assemble. It can also be easily disassembled for storage. The little ones who tested this were thrilled to bits with the opportunities it offered to run in and out of the structure, pretend to hide and then pop their faces out of the windows and engage in the sort of imaginative play which surprises adults by its complexity and variety. The only caveat I would have about the castle are the colours, which are pink and lilac. A green and yellow castle would appeal to both sexes.
