Discovery Kids Color and Play Castle Review (MerchSource)

What It Is

The Discovery Kids Color and Play Castle is a cardboard castle playset that looks like a storybook castle. This life-size (for kids), 3-D coloring structure stands more than six feet tall and includes a drawbridge, windows that open and close, and a customizable flag. The recycled cardboard castle pieces are black and white so that once the castle is assembled, kids can color and decorate the castle any way they want, then play inside and outside of the castle. No markers are included. Once playtime is over, the castle pieces can be taken apart, folded up, and stored back inside the box.

Is It Fun?

This large castle playset engages kids in lots of imaginative and creative play. Kids will like that there is lots of space to play inside and outside of the castle and that they get to decorate it to create a castle that's all their own.

Who It’s For

The Discovery Kids Color and Play Castle is for ages 3 and up.

What To Be Aware Of

Adult assembly is required. It took us about five minutes to put the castle pieces together. It is easy set-up but can be a little awkward because the two main cardboard pieces are so large. It might be helpful if two people assembled the castle together to help keep the pieces from falling over while putting them together. Also, be careful as you assemble the pieces. They are made of cardboard and can easily tear.

The castle is very large, which is great for kids, but if you don't have a lot of space in your home for this to be up all the time, it's very easy to take down and store.
