Freddy is a big Nick Jr fan and Ben & Holly's Little Kingdom is a real favourite of his. So when he was sent the Ben & Holly's Little Kingdom Thistle Castle Playset by Character, he was very excited to re-enact some of his favourite scenes from the show.
Thistle Castle is a magical toy with lots of hidden secrets that little ones will enjoy exploring. The playset comes complete with a Holly character, so children can play straight away. It also comes with a bed and a treasure chest for added play value.
The playset can be attached to other playsets to build a bigger, more elaborate toy, but works well as a stand alone item. The open plan design features Holly's bedroom and part of the kitchen downstairs.
The Holly figure comes complete with her crown, wings and magic wand. Holly's feet can be attached to a base so she can be free-standing.
Holly has a bed for her sleep in. It isn't a fixed feature so it can be moved around. There is a Holly shaped cut out in the mattress so she lies in the bed securely!
The toybox in Holly's room has a secret slide hidden beneath the lid. Little hands can drop her through the hole.
The slide whizzes Holly down so she appears behind the door in the kitchen. Perfect for a midnight snack! There is a magical floating throne on the wall behind the door for more magical fun.
A secret door in the floor hides Nanny Plum's Book of Spell, perfect for when you need to turn somebody into a frog. The treasure chest has disappearing treasure inside.
The cauldron has a spoon in it which can be stirred to mix the potion.
The spoon magically opens the store cupboard to show the food inside, and King Thistle's portrait disappears.
The attention to detail, such as the pictures on the walls and the magical features make this an exciting playset for little Ben and Holly fans. Freddy wished it had come with his favourite character Ben Elf, but was happy enough making Holly the lead character in his imaginative games.
You can add extra playsets and buy additional characters from the range, which are all scaled to be compatible. They are suitable for children aged three and up.
The Ben & Holly's Little Kingdom Thistle Castle Deluxe Playset is available for £24.99 from Character Online and from other toy retailers.
