We got this one from letterbox about 4 years ago.

Has withstood lots of playing and I like it because it is not too colourful so looks good.

tower of doom looks big!

Actually space is an issue. Was wondering if a Playmobil one would be better as we could break it up but want them to love it iykwim.

Anybody seen any others that aren't too big or can be dismantled or your dc loved I could put up with a beast if it gets played with-a lot!!!!!!!

The ELC other one does look nice,any more recommendations???

[http://www.ardentoys.co.uk/index.php?act=viewProd&productId=279] was thinking about this one for my DS1's 6th birthday as it packs away but the price is a shocker!

rolledhedgehog Tue 07-Oct-08 17:40:43

I will try that again...

Dd1 loves playmobil ,she's 4.7 but i would say the elc castle will be more sturdy, playmobil has alot of little peices which tend to get lost.

elmoandella Tue 07-Oct-08 17:44:46

i wouldn't recommend playmobil. you'll end up losing most of it. and then it'll be useless by xmas. i like the tower of doom. use 20% off code and you get free dragons and warriors just now

Swoon at the Ardentoys one, it's gorgeous and it packs away-price not!!!!!!!!!

another book, thanks for that link thing.

was just testing to see if it worked.

Schleich, it has lovely knights that you can build a collection too. Not too clever to pack away (we have one very large box) but it will withstand any amount of jumping and standing on.

Twelvelegs Tue 07-Oct-08 20:23:02

castle and other knights stuff like a jousting fence etc http://www.spmodels.co.uk/acatalog/Online_Catalogue_Knights_Buildings_354.html

hello just wondering if you are anywhere near gloucester. i have a fisher price one with some toy knights. would sell for a fiver! nothing wrong with it. just that its too grown up for ds 14 months. the little people one would be better suited to him.

moominsmummy Tue 07-Oct-08 20:32:39

we made one from a square cardboard box - cut some holes for the windows and drawbridge - made the portcullis go up and down with string. DS had loads of fun painting it grey.

fruitful Tue 07-Oct-08 20:38:49

Or you could buy one that someone else made from a cardboard box - www.cardboardtoys.com/acatalog/Brown_Cardboard_Toy_Castle_Fortress.html

fruitful Tue 07-Oct-08 20:40:48

Oh my goodness. A castle that they can play inside.

Love the cardboard ones but can't help thinking one drink spillage and you've got v expensive paper mache grin

Still none the wiser,am loathe to let them choose one as I can guarantee it would be the most expensive or not available!!!!!!
