The Disney Princess Ultimate Dream Castle by Mattel stands three stories high, consisting of themed rooms each made to match it's Princess counterpart. For example there is a bathroom for Ariel, with a shell bath tub and sink. In Sleeping beauty's bedroom, you will find her Fairy Godmothers flying overhead. In the stores, online and on television this castle looked stunning. I could not wait to check it out for ourselves.
As soon as it arrived I figured I would probably need some extra space to work on putting it together and transported it into the garage. Set up looks little more arduous then it was. The instructions were visual as opposed to read along which isn't always my strong suit, so I will give you this tip. There are some pieces that look the same but are just slightly different. If it doesn't fit, pick up the next similar piece and should fit like a glove. After it was constructed I was amazed, It was like I was in my own magical Disney Princess world. I knew my daughter was going to freak!
There was no detail missed. Each room with it's own wallpaper, and even a wrapping staircase where Cinderellas shoe sits in wait at the bottom. There are over 50 play pieces like chip and Lumiere, blankets for Aurora's bed and so much more. These play pieces really bring the castle to life. * Some pieces are small and not suitable for babies and young toddlers.
There are also a ton of fun features; like Cinderellas slipper on the staircase that pops up, Jasmines magic carpet the elevates through the floors, napkins that magically dance on the table top, Mrs Pots and Chip wiggle when the dining cart is pushed.
With two "AA" batteries you can experience the sounds of the musical dance floor and bubbles in Ariel's bathroom.
There are so many reason why this castle will make an amazing gift this holiday season and beyond, for the Lil' Princess in your life. The only downside is it doesn't come included with the dolls, so you will also have to purchase the dolls separate.
