Magical Playtime with the Ben and Holly Thistle Castle Playset

Elves and fairies have always been exciting to children. Ben and Holly’s Little Kingdom is a popular television series that airs on Nick Jr. The children love watching it and though Jadyn has outgrown it (somewhat) she still watches it with the others. I must confess I do enjoy watching it with the children too.

To have our very own Thistle Castle to play with is magical indeed.

Ben and Holly Thistle Castle Playset from Character comes with a few accessories – a Holly figure, a bed for Holly and a treasure chest.

The bed has an imprint of Holly so she can actually ‘sleep’ in it.


There is a lot of magic floating around the castle as you can see from the pictures.

Thistle Castle is well made and the children love playing with it. Of course, since it is targeted more to Aeryn’s age, she gets to play with it more (well, she usually pushes the others out of her way) and she enjoys telling stories and letting Holly slide down from the bedroom and out the little door. (I think Holly enjoys it too)

I love the attention to detail with the brick like effect that reflects the series. It also has pictures on the wall.

The playset is sturdy and will provide hours of play time fun. It is great for imaginary play.

It would have nice to have a little Ben figure to go along with it but understandably it is Thistle Castle! There is nothing to stop one from adding to the set as there are other playsets available like the magical playground as well as figures of Ben, Nanny Plum, the wise old elf and even Gaston.

Ben and Holly Thistle Castle Playset is priced at £24.99 and is a lovely toy for any child.
