Searching for a present for our granddaughter is a mission as she has so much! Luckily her great uncle always manages to find something wonderful, this year for her fourth birthday he gave her Ben and Holly’s Thistle Castle from the Little Kingdom range.
As soon as the gift wrap was torn off Prudence was entranced. The packaging is excellent, bright and colourful, allowing the child to see everything inside the box and as an added bonus in this day and age no batteries required!
The castle is intriguing with movable parts and secret areas to discover and the little Holly figure is delightful, any young child would be enchanted to receive this as a gift.
Since receiving this playset Prudence has spent countless hours happily playing with it. The castle is sturdy, well made, colourful and great fun and coupled with an active imagination the possibilities for fairy tale adventures are limitless.
Prudence is equally happy to play with this toy on her own or with a friend when she has a play date. We are looking forward to buying further products from the Ben and Holly Little Kingdom range to build a collection because as Prudence is only four she will have years of pleasure with these toys.
I am a great fan of toys that encourage young children to use and stretch their imaginations rather than relying on technology and Ben and Holly’s Little Kingdom certainly fits into that category.
Suitable age: 3 years +
