Paige Posted December 5, 2011 Share Posted December 5, 2011 I am thinking about getting all of my kids (ages 4g, 7g, 7g, and 10b) a nice castle set with some schleich, papo, and safari type figures. I'm not planning on doing a lot of knights and princesses but more of the mythical creatures. DS loves Percy Jackson so I was thinking of things like a minotaur, cerberus, spartan warrior, and hydras for him and fairies, elves, unicorns, etc. for the girls. I know a castle isn't exactly the right setting for those but I can't think of a better playset/home for them. I was hoping all of them could play together and DS wouldn't feel left out since the girls love to play fairies and Barbie type pretend all day long. Is he too old? He still loves pretend and prefers to play pretend than any other type of game and the figures look really cool and not babyish. I keep thinking he'll outgrow how much he pretends but he doesn't. He even still plays with his stuffed animals and makes homes and stuff for them. Since this would be their main gift, I don't want him to feel left out and disappointed if he thinks he's too old for a castle set. Obviously, I can't ask him. DH thinks that DS is a little old for it but that he would really like it for now. He thinks he may outgrow it soon. How long have your all's kids or the kids you know played with these sets? It would be expensive enough to set up that I'd like all of them to enjoy it for a long time. I think DS would like it better if I could find some kind of Greek palace type castle instead of a medieval one but I haven't been able to find anything like that. I know the girls would like it. They drool over the Schleich fairies every time we go to a museum gift shop. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
