You can buy your kids the most expensive toys on the market, but one thing is for sure.. they enjoy the simple things the most! Our kids have a bazillion toys and right now their favorite is The Citadel, recommended for children aged 4 to 8, that we received for review from Green Town Toys.
Just what is the Citadel? Well, it’s a castle, made out of cardboard. It’s one of those nifty things where you say.. “Now why didn’t I think of that?” I know some of your are probably saying.. “really.. cardboard?”… but our daughter had the best time with the Citadel and it comes highly recommended from our little diva! She played house and even had to go get one of her favorite stuffed animals to play in the castle with her. At one point we were all inside the castle with her! Yes! It’s that huge! It measures 54.5” x 54.5” when fully assembled so it’s spacious enough for 3 to 4 kids to play in. It’s also 100% recyclable.
Your child will find hours of fun and enjoyment packing different toys and action figures into every nook and cranny of The Citadel’s four majestic towers and onto every ledge of its accompanying walkways. Throw a sheet over the top and crawl into the spacious courtyard with your kids for story time. Leave markers in the grand entryway and watch as party guests customize a beautiful party favor. Set it up in your little one’s room and it can even be used as the world’s first awe-inspiring storage bin. Like medieval fortresses from the days of old, The Citadel has been intricately designed to do it all! greentowntoys.com
The Citadel came with easy instructions to put it together and held together fairly well. We put it out on the wrong day because there was rain moving in and it got very windy while we were outside.. like 60 mph winds. So one thing I recommend is to make sure it’s not a windy day outside because well, it is cardboard, and wind overpowers cardboard (trust me, this doesn’t make for a happy diva!). Other than the windy situation we had the Citadel was very durable.. you wouldn’t think that with it being cardboard but it did well when it wasn’t so windy.
Storage was very easy. You can simply collapse the unit for easy storage just about anywhere. Since it’s was going to rain we folded it down and put it in one of our larger closets.
