Imaginarium Pretend 2-in-1 Medieval Battle Castle

August 23, 2016

 

 

(Toy R Us $59.99)

 

What an innovative idea! Medieval Castles are hardly new. But this 2-in-1 design is! Put the two halves of the castle together or split them apart for two players who can defend their own castle. Along with the castle(s), which will need serious adult assembling, the elaborate painted wood castle comes with 34 accessories for dramatic play: silver and gold knights with weapons, ladders for scaling the walls, two cannons and blue and gold banners that go into the gold or blue castle turrets. A timbered gate that rises on one side and a drawbridge that lowers on the other side provide entry and egress. Our tester had no trouble getting the pieces together, though it does take time. If this is a holiday gift, you may want to assemble it in advance. It’s not going to go back in the box once it’s built and it will take up a considerable amount of space. But it is a beauty! There is also a painted base with a moat that the castle can sit on. We do need to note that some of the knights have weapons with small projectiles. We suggest removing them, especially with younger children. This is marked 3 & up, but in fact it’s a setting for older preschoolers and early school age kids. This is an exclusive at Toys R Us.
