The boys have a Playmobil castle which they play with lots and they love anything to do with knights, sword fights and battles so I knew that Lego Castle would quickly grab their imagination! No surprises there!
With Lego you know you are buying quality and a product that will be played with over and over again. So it is a great investment with the kits offering an age range of 7-12 (five years worth of playing!). We all know that we can’t resist a Lego kit ourselves!
The detail is also exceptional on the pieces with movable walls and stacks of other features to guarantee lots of fun. The sets are priced reasonably starting at £7.99 for the Forest Ambush set which has kept our two amused for hours. Possibly the only disappointing thing is the lack of female figures (as mentioned by Penny from Alexander Residence who was there too with her family). The knights could be androgynous though I guess!
Warwick Castle is the perfect place to host the Lego Castle launch. As well as the Lego play areas you can also do the Lego Castle Dragon egg hunt where you follow the clues to find the location of the final egg (and chocolate coins!).
There is also lots going on over the Summer including Horrible Histories providing educational fun (loved the Victorian school, which reminded us of our day at Wilderspin!).and all the usual attractions at Warwick Castle such as bird of prey, jousting, Merlin, Kingmaker, Castle Dungeons (for ages 10+) and the mighty Trebauchet.
Ethan took part in the Knight School where he had training from an experienced Knight and practiced his moves on a wooden post wrapped with rope. He slept VERY well that night!
It was great to see the lots of friendly bloggers there too including Erica, enjoying a chilled day out as well.
Thank you again to Elyssa for arranging a brilliant day!
