- (March 02, 2006) There was a lot of excitement and anticipation during the building stage, with the kids gleefully testing each new step. Each new visitor to the house was treated to a demonstration. It now collects dust like an interesting piece of art - it's not really something you want to disassemble because it takes the better part of a day to put it together. The instruction manual closes with an invitation to visit their website for more construction plans. Sadly enough, the website does not exist! Overall, fun project for a few days worth of fun, but not the ongoing creative play I was hoping for!
- (July 01, 2007) Mindstorms NXT is a great kit, and I recommend it to any robotics fan. It is easy to pick up, and hard to put down. I do wish they could make some improvements though: more memory in the NXT brick, clearer instructions and more affordability.
- (June 20, 2008) I ordered this castle for my two boys to play with using their Schleich, Papo and Safari knight figures. It will work perfectly for this. When I opened the box, I was more than pleased with the construction and the fact that it does fold up so that I can store it in the top of their closet when necessary. It provides little extras for imaginative play with the working drawbridge and the trap door complete with a working jail door below it. I was ready to take it out and play with it myself but unfortunately I have to wait until I give it to my boys at Christmas. They will love it. Where were toys like this when I was little! Thanks!

- (06/12/2013) This is a very cute toy. My 12 month old twin boys really like it so far. The only problem- after removing it from the packaging I found that half the wooden owl was missing. There was a front but no back to slide down over the pegs! I will be taking it back because it is damaged and is missing pieces but otherwise a very cute wooden toy.
