An item that is sure to be requested on many wish lists this year is the My Little Pony Canterlot Castle Playset. It is exactly the type of toy I would have loved to have received as a child. My Little Pony and a Castle playset? I don’t know about you, but I think this beats a doll house!
The My Little Pony Canterlot Castle Playset is three stories tall and has a working elevator to bring visiting ponies up to the third floor after trotting up the grand stairs to the throne. The My Little Pony Canterlot Castle Playset comes with furniture, decorations, and even tiny food so your child can setup the castle as they wish. It has everything you could ever want in a castle!
The castle itself comes ready to assemble, it didn’t take very long to put together at all. I was a bit surprised by how much laminated cardboard makes up the playset and was worried it would be flimsy. Thankfully once put together it seems fairly sturdy and durable. We’ve had it for about a month now and the panels have not popped out of place nor has the castle fallen over.
It does has some neat design features that I like including the doors at the back of the playset that open and close, and the stain “glass” inserts.
Canterlot Castle is home to Princess Celestia and this magnificent castle comes with Princess Celestia herself and Spike the Dragon. Little ones can explore this 3-level castle together from the first floor right up to the balcony with their own My Little Pony figures.
Keira tends to play with about half the accessories on the floor in front of the castle so that there is more space in the castle itself to move the ponies around. The staircase is removable which also makes it a bit easier to play with ponies inside the playset.
There are also codes hidden around Princess Celestia and Canterlot Castle that can be scanned to unlock more fun in the My Little Pony Friendship Celebration app.
Kids can really let their imaginations go wild creating their own My Little Pony stories throughout the castle using their ponies and the included accessories. You can set the table for tea and treats or spend some time in the castle library reading through scrolls and practising magic.
We discovered that the castle turret is actually removable and can be worn as a pretty tiara for princess dress-up. This is likely Keira’s favourite feature of the playset.
We ended up placing it in Keira’s room to prevent Ava from losing all the little pieces and that has worked out well as Keira now likes to get up in the morning and play with her My Little Pony’s in the castle.
