“ Brand: Le Toy Van / Type: Castle „
I bought this for my daughters 4th birthday and i think she's played with it every day since then. She has a large doll house and a beautiful kitchen too but she really enjoys playing make believe with the fairy characters (which you buy seperate and are by a company called Papo)
It comes flat pack so you need to build it yourself but i'm used to having to build things from scratch now so didn't have a problem with it however the instructions were'nt the greatest, it was just illustrations. It probably took me around.... half an hour to construct and the pieces just slot in place so no tedious screwing required!
It's pretty sturdy when constructed but i have found some parts have came off when my daughters been playing but these just pop back into place so it's nothing to worry about.
It has a little bell in the tower which your little one can make ring, a well which can be turned and the little bucket goes into a little hole, a built in music box but our one doesn't work, i don't know if it was already broken or if i did it when building it but i can't seem to fix it but this hasn't put me off or wanted to send it back... i don't feel it's a big deal
It costs around the £100 mark and you may find it difficult to get your hands on, many of the online shops were out of stock or had it overpriced. If you can't find it because its out of stock then i'd suggest you try independent toy shops, i've wondered in to a few and they've all stocked le toy van products. The figures for the castle are by Papo and they cost around £4 each but they are really lovely and very high quality (they look like little ornaments!)
Over all it really is a lovely toy and when my daughter outgrows it i'll be keeping a hold of it because it's too lovely to give away. I looked at lots of other fairy castles including other le toy van ones but i felt this one the nicest one. It looks lovely along side all her other woden toys. So if you like quality items and want your daughter to have something she will love and play with everyday then i highly recommend this beautiful toy.
