The Kiddo received the LEGO Kingdoms King's Castle construction set for his birthday and we recently spent a weekend putting it together as a family. We were impressed with the detail and intricate, yet simple LEGO blocks and pictoral instructions for putting the castle together. It's what we've come to expect from LEGO, and why it's on the Kiddo's wishlists for each holiday and birthday.
If you have a castle/knight fan in the fam, show your kid the LEGO Kingdoms site for some cute mini games and short movies about the characters and contstruction sets. Love, love, love the LEGO characters' expressions. Here's some photos to give you a better view of the detail on the pieces and the castle overall. We had so much fun putting this together!
LEGO employees must have such a fun sense of humor...check out the rat that came with the set, it's in the middle of this photo at the top of the ladder. Of course there'd have been rats around a castle. ;-)
Here's the Kiddo showing how the gate moves up and down, and can lock.
