no not a real onegrin, I am trying to encourage more imaginative play and thought a castle might be good, so I have found two, this and this, which one is better do you think, or if you know of any others, please feel free to point them out.

We have the play mobile castle which is 10 years old now. I think out of the two I like the GLTC.

Try the Melissa and Doug line of wooden castles on amazon they do a great one that folds open!

I'm looking for a castle too. Was really keen on the playmobil ones for my 4yr old, but now I'm thinking a wooden castle might be better. I have a 2yr old as well and all the small bits in the playmobil castles might get lost easily with her around. The ELC castle looks good too.

choceyes, the small bits in playmobil also get easily lost around my 6year old wink. Definately either getting the gltc one or the melissa and doug one, the melissa and doug isn't a colourful but I can see how it would be much better to play with opening out like that so they can almost pretent they're in the castle.

Have a look at wonderland for castles and accessories. They've got a really good range and I've found them competitively priced for a lot of the wooden toys similar or the same that gltc and others sell (I don't work for them, honestly!).
