- Features a two figures - Mike the Knight and his horse Galahad. Just like in the show Mike has a very large head, which is cute, but it makes it difficult for him to stand on carpet.
- Includes a treasure chest that can automatically hide a golden treasure.
- A catapult fits on top of the castle and can fire a large rock - the directions in the box state that you want to make sure that you don't fire the rock towards a person's eye!
- Mike's bed lifts up to feature an escape slide - although it the escape hatch seems a little too small which makes it a little tough for Mike to escape.
- The top of the castle turret rotates so that Mike enter or leave the castle
- A push of the button causes the castle to play Mike the Knight sounds to play
- Mike can hold onto a zip line and zip from his flag pole to a position outside of the castle
- Mike fits on Galahad, but it is not a very tight fit and he can easily fall off. Not that big of a deal, but it may frustrate some children.
- Galahad's food trough can double as a bench
- Very little assembly required.
Final Verdict-The Mike the Knight Glendragon Playset is fun for both fans and non-fans of Mike the Knight. While the playset has a few minor shortcomings it is still has plenty of tricks, secret passages, and fun to keep most kids all smiles.
Like a few other reports here indicated, my own fingers were twice pinched when setting up the castle (however, I do recall endlessly pinching my own tiny fingers in the hinges of all my old, beloved playsets). And, yes, I had the same problem getting Mike to remain standing (which, again, makes me long for those old-school "peg-bottom" figures or even Weeble-Wobbles). It was also a bummer that only Mike accompanies the set. I mean, we all "get it," if Fisher-Price sells an all-inclusive set, why would we buy accessories. (Again, making one nostalgic for their older products that included all Sesame Street characters, etc.). It's a consistent disappointment/money-pit.
Oh yeah, press the shield for goofy sounds; however, I really wish that toy companies would learn how much parents loathe those noises (and how superfluous it is on this particular toy). Bummer. Many educational toys have super annoying sounds, but we tolerate them because learning to "Bop It" means bettering dexterity. Pressing the shield here does nothing for anyone.
If you (like others here) desire toys that fosters imagination, then pick up Gears! Gears! Gears!®, Lincoln Logs (they're plastic now, but still great), and Tinkertoy. These have a larger age-range (i.e. your child will play with them for much longer) and they assist with developing dexterity. However, if you are just seeking a "fun" toy, this may very well qualify. It IS cute, colorful, and silly ... and sometimes, we really DO need all three of those things:)
