A Toy Fit for a King (or Queen)

From “I’m a fireman” to “the dog ate my homework,” seems most things going on in a child’s world involves their imagination. I don’t know how many games of “secret undercover agents underground” we’ve played in our daughter’s room, blinds drawn, mini-flashlights in hands. I also have no idea how many things have been blamed on our dog Dazey, but I’m sure she did only a fraction of them.

This is precisely why the Cardboardesign’s castle is the perfect fit for our creative little household. Our little princess loves to imagine dragons, horses, princes…OK, sometimes it’s ladybugs, penguins and cars…roaming all over the courtyard in front of the castle. Only the really special dolls get the privilege of playing inside the castle walls. They sit around talking about things like ice cream, puppies and tumble class. You know, the topics of royal chit-chat.

What’s great about this castle is that it also engages her artist side—the one that involves markers, stickers and paint. This particular imaginative side is clearly something I want to encourage, but encourage away from my walls and furniture. Because it’s bare, the ruler of the Cardboardesign kingdom can decorate it as they wish—coloring and painting and drawing to their heart’s content.

And I don’t have to be imaginative as to where to put this big castle. It comes with a pack away flat box, so it’s easy to store. How creative!
