Pros - This is a cute toy. I have been looking for something like this for a long time. Even thought about just getting a castle and using sharpies to make it boyish. Then I came across this castle. This is great. All little boys like castles and it even includes little toy people, two horses, two chairs, a bed, and a "treasure" chest. My son loved it the second he opened it. And he especially loves the drawbridge. YES! A drawbridge! So far he hasn't stopped playing with it. Not only is it fun, but it helps with verbal skills and there is no electronic device and he is "forced" to make up and act out his own stories. Cons: Only found one con with this toy. There are three operational "doors". One is on the inside of the toy which acts like the door to a bedroom. The other is the drawbridge. This one tends to snap back up if not pushed all the way down and I'm just waiting for my sons finger to get caught. Also, since it is a fold and go castle, it bends in the middle to close. This toy is made of all wood. There is nothing on the ends to soften the folding of this castle. We all know boys are rough on their toys, and a little cushion would go a long way on this part.

The is a wonderful choice for little boys. We use this for "Special Time". Special time is 30 minutes of total attention on your child. You have to use a toy with no rules that allows the child to be creative. I love that it is easy to take places.

My three year old's face lit up when he opened this on Christmas morning. He has already spent hours playing with it. He's even let his 16 month brother join in on the fun. Any toy that helps build my children's imagination this much gets an A+.

My 4 year old daughter loves everything about his toy. My only complaint is that is does not include the prince and princess. The only option is to buy the entire royal family set since they are not sold seperately.

My 2 year old son loves this toy - it offers great opportunity for dramatic play without being girly. It folds up nicely and is easy to store. I love Melisssa & Doug toys for their durability and nonplastic materials.
