It is the story and romance of this detailed castle that will keep young players entertained with this set
Once kids have finished building this beautiful castle, it is time to really explore all of the different rooms and make sure that Cinderella has the night of her life. There is a pretty good story attached to this set, with the two lead mini-doll characters, the complexity of the castle and the accessories. It is called the “romantic” castle because of the love story that plays out between Cinderella and Prince Charming. Cinderella has been invited to the castle for a magical evening with the Prince. With her glass slippers and best dress on, she can dance with him in the ballroom, have a drink beside the fireplace and watch the sunset from the balcony. It should be a perfect evening, but there is always that threat that the clock will strike midnight and the magic will disappear. Players must race to enjoy all the delights of the castle and uncover the secrets before the spell is broken.
This is where the problem lies for our heroine, there are so many places to explore and things to discover that time can run away with her. The ballroom and living quarters are just the start of the places for a romantic encounter. There is also a swing outside where the pair can play under the stars and an outdoor eating area. Somewhere within the castle there is also a hidden love letter and a treasure chest with heart shaped diamonds. It sounds a little OTT, but that is what we have come to expect from Disney stories.
The level of detail in this set is impressive and kids are sure to enjoy creating new Cinderella stories for a long time.
There amount of parts and accessories included mean that there is plenty of opportunity for creative play. There are lots of jewellery and make-up elements so she can make herself look good up in the bedroom. The castle also boasts a throne, a bridge over the moat and a clock to strike twelve. Even Bruno the dog and Lucifer the cat are here to add to the fun – or cause some mayhem. Kids can explore this LEGO Disney Princess Cinderella’s Romantic Castle 41055 Set in any way they choose for some creative adventures and it fits in brilliantly with the other Disney Princess castles. Perhaps Cinderella’s neighbors can come to the ball too!
