ELC Snow Queen Palace
Advantages: Size, Colours, Main structure stability
Disadvantages: Dont get characters, base keeps detaching
I seen the snow queen palace a month or so ago before Christmas last year and it had been reduced to about £30.00. The display model in the store looked fantastic and I thought this was something my little girl would be over the moon with, only problem was there was no more to be found. The lady in store advised me to order the product online and have it delivered but I explained I would rather do so and have it delivered to store. After a long confusing conversation I was told this wasn't possible, I left the store in the metro centre and went straight to the one at the team valley.
The lady at the team valley also advised that this product was out of stock and had been for some time now and according to their records it was going back to full price soon. I decided to order the product and it was delivered very quickly and I went to visit the store that same day to see they had shelves full still at the discounted price. I could have saved the delivery charge, however I had the item and I was happy I managed to get one before the price went back up to 65.00.
The snow queen castle is made out of wood and every piece is carefully shaped so that it can be slotted in or attached to another piece without the use of screws or bolts. Each piece is smoothed too so there is no risk of spelks when assembling or more importantly when the children are playing.
The castle is pink in colour and rather striking once built, it is very girly and big enough for a few children to play with as it has lots of openings and floors including an opening roof compartment, there are plenty of places to play. The actual assembley of this item was easy as the instructions were very informative and easy to read.
Height - 62.3cm
Width - 32.4cm
Depth - 8.6cm
The castle is advertised as being suitable for ages 3 and up
Overall this castle looks fantastic with its gorgeous pink design and detailing plus glittering effects that really add to the overall product. The only thing that I have had problems with has been the base as it is very big and the main structure of the castle fits into this part. The castle isn't very secure and keeps popping out of the base a fair few times when it is being played with. This can be a bit worrying in case it comes toppling down however even after the numerous times it has come off the castle structure has never collapsed as it is very sturdy.
Another issue can be the moving of the castle as due to its size it can be complicated so I would advise to keep it where it is once you have decided on a place for it. The castle has a figure collection that goes with it compromising of fairies, godmothers, kings and queens and these can be purchased separately for 10.00 I personally think that when paying the full 65.00 for this castle that you should get a pack of characters to go with it. Overall the castle really looks great and I would certainly recommend for any princess.
This product can still be purcased from the elc website under the new name of wonderland palace.
