Kiddicare’s Buzzing Brains Wooden Castle is attractive, sturdy and easy to assemble. Substantial in size, the toy makes a brilliant play arena for children and is especially good for collaborative play.
The adjustable ladders and wooden drawbridge are enticing features and the castle comes with a couple of wooden figurines but its immensity certainly warrants more than ‘a couple’! Action figures as opposed to ‘blocks of wood’ would be a welcome improvement as would a few extra features, to up the castle dynamic.
It would also be great if pieces could somehow be ’locked’ into place after assembly to prevent turrets (for example) from falling off, or perhaps the inclusion of a foldable, colourful base would enable the castle to be moved without bits falling off. Storing the product might put some parents off but it really is a lovely, imaginative toy that will inspire ages of play, which makes it good value for money!
