At approximately two feet in height, Dragon World Fortress is filled with enough interactive features to keep active imaginations occupied. The play set comes with two knight figures, each with their own detachable sword, shield and armor. With these figures your child can pivot "activation points" on the play set, which can reveal hidden staircases and open the front gate.
Knights who dare to enter the Dragon World Fortress face many dangers. Pulling a lever on the back of the castle will cause the green guard dragon to lunge forward and attack intruders. The lever also triggers thunder sound effects and causes the entire castle to light up. There is also a cannon that fires plastic projectiles, and a rolling boulder that can be used to defend the staircases.
The fortress is constructed in solid, sturdy plastic. Parents, be aware that it is fairly easy to topple over due to its vertical design. However, this problem is remedied by folding out the hidden set of stairs underneath the castle, giving it the stability needed for rougher play.
Dragon World Fortress channels a spirit of medieval adventure. It is full of movable objects and sounds, but still leaves plenty of room for constructive, imaginative play. The play set provides children with the tools needed for an immersive, imaginative experience.

Where to start? The castle is one big, awesome sculpt. The amount of thought that went into the castle is astonishing - there is a dragon motif incorporated into everything, from the bedspread on the bed to the secret stairs. Centaurs are sculpted into the columns, vampire bats adorn the outer walls, and if you look closely at the picture you can see that the green dragon head matches the rough-hewn stone of the lower section to form a complete dragon. As a miniature painter myself, it's so pretty I want to paint it.
Counting the roof and the dungeon, this play set has FIVE levels. Starting with the base, the castle is configurable two ways. One way opens a secret door into the dungeon, while the other provides a helpful entrance with steps into the ground floor - which is actually an ingenious lure, because it completes the winding funnel that is a rolling boulder trap. Swiveling out the secret door has the added benefit of giving the castle a sturdier base.
Foolish mortals who manage to make it past the boulder trap face off against the portcullis. It's here that there are footholds for the two knights. Simply put the knights' feet into the footholds and turn to active the mechanism. It sounds good in practice but is harder for my nearly three-year-old boy. He asks me to do it. Turning the footholds causes the portcullis to raise or lower along with an accompanying ka-CHUNK, thunder and lightning, and even an owl hooting. The portcullis mechanism itself is a series of wheels and gears, along with a little rope that winds through it.Read more ›
Imaginext toys are fantastic! So glad we bought this for our son.
Update: May 2014
Our son is now 11 and still plays with this! The construction is fantastic. The only problem is that ours tips over quite a bit. I've read that they've since added a wedge to prevent this problem but unfortunately ours doesn't have this. Would still buy it because it's lasted many years and is still in great condition.
