Disney/Pixar’s Brave Castle & Forest Playset Review (Mattel)

What It Is

The Brave Castle & Forest Playset is based on the Disney/Pixar movie Brave. In the movie, which is set in the Highlands of Scotland, Merida, a tomboy princess, finds the courage to save her mother from a mysterious curse and discovers her own destiny along the way. With this playset, kids can play in Merida's world both inside and outside. One half of the playset is a two-story castle complete with four pieces of furniture: bed, chest, table, and chair. The other half is a fold-out forest scene. There are hidden surprises within the playset. Open the chest to reveal one of Merida's triplet brothers. A second brother can also be found when you move back the staircase, and the third brother is hiding behind the staircase door. (The brothers provide a lot of the comedy in the film.) The playset comes with a four-inch poseable Merida doll with bow and Angus, Merida's horse, with clip to hold the doll in place as she rides the horse.
