The girls love My Little Pony and so does Ethan. He loves watching the DVDs with his sisters.
When we were sent this Princess Twilight Sparkle’s Friendship Rainbow Kingdom playset from Hasbro to review, the girls were over the moon. So was I. I love my little pony too and I had a really lovely one when I was younger. It was blue with stars on its flanks. It’s nice to see my daughter playing with the same range of toys. Only thing they didn’t have the castle out then. Shame!!
Anyway nothing stops me from playing with the children with it.
It was fairly easy to set up but will not be easy for younger children as you have to follow instructions and make sure that the right part gets attached to its counterpart.
Once up though, there is a slide for Twilight to slide down, a swing for her to swing on and even a vanity for her to keep her things.
The set comes with Twilight but you can buy others separately and add to the collection.
What we loved about it…
- It’s bright colours
- It’s spiral slide and the swing
- The two storeyed feature
- The attention to little things like the flags and the vanity case and the little hangers and ring.
- The idea of the keys being flags
- Good quality
The castle comes with Twilight Sparkle and she has a gorgeous rainbow coloured mane. There are shoes and a little skirt and a crown to play dress up with her. So there are many ways to play with the set.
The castle does however tend to collapse if a child rests on it lightly as the different storeys rest on the pillars, so you do have to be careful about that. Ensure that the pillars are well attached. Having said that, the castle parts are light so there is no harm caused even if it does. In fact, the children have rather loved it as they get to put it back together again.
We love the castle as it provides many hours of playing fun. It is an excellent set for any My Little Pony fan.
I always advocate imaginative play with children as that is what being a child is all about. I love hearing my children playing and pretending that they ponies can talk.
The castle is priced at £39.99 and I would definitely recommend it. I can see Santa putting in an order for many of these. The elves are going to be busy making loads of these sets.
