Top 7 Toy Castles For Your Kids

By

Children love pretend play toys. There's nothing better than a toy castle to help develop an active imagination! Castles have always held a fascination for both young and old. One can spend hours playing with toy castles and weaving tales revolving around kings, queens, knights and knaves. Of late, there have been a good number of toy castles released for kids including Cinderella themed toy castles, and castles with knights in shining armor. Here are some of the top Toy Castles for your kids.

1. Cinderella's Enchanted Evening Castle

Mattel
Out of all the Disney Princess stories, none has left such a lasting effect as the fairytale ballroom dance of Cinderella and Prince Charming. Cinderella and Prince Charming dolls (from Mattel, of course!) actually waltz on the dance floor of this two level playhouse. You can fold this toy castle when not in play. Opening it reveals a dance floor, a dress stand and more. A clock chimes at midnight (just as in the story). A door latch to the castle can be worn by a little girl as a ring.
