King George's Toy Castle
Aptly named, King George's Castle is an exquisite premium wooden castle with a functioning drawbridge, balconies and doors - there's even a secret door so the knights can sneak out without being spotted by the enemy. Imaginative kids can even stage their own George and the Dragon scene at the castle, rescuing the Royal Family from the wrath of the dragon's fiery breath. Don't forget to change the colour of the flags to show who has claimed the castle.
The perfect Medieval accessories for a mythical adventure, our Medieval Knights set features four brave knights with flexible arms and legs that mean they can stand in a fighting stance or sit down to surrender during playtime. Will the House of Blue or House of Red claim the castle? You will have to battle it out with the four knights to decide!
Fairy Tale Palace
In a magical kingdom far, far away lived a Prince and Princess who want their happily ever after. Our beautiful bright pink Fairy Tale Palace has a pretty courtyard, working shutters and doors, balconies, a dressing room and a secret door. The secret door is a great escape for the Princess if the scary Witch is about. With lots of reach-in play space, there's plenty of room for kids to play with friends, too.
Make enemies come to a halt on your wooden train set with our impressive Drawbridge. Use the red dials to lower and raise the bridge and let the train chug through and keep the enemies out. Has realistic grey brick detailing, fire torches, climbing ivy and black ravens for a true Medieval effect.

Dressed to impress, Queen of the Castle Lottie wears a magnificent royal blue velvet gown, silver glittery crown, sparkly top & pink tutu, and gold shoes.

Queen of the Castle is an age-relatable doll that looks just like a child who is playing dress-up.
