I was a little disappointed in the castle when compared to the farm and the house, which she had received for her first birthday and for Christmas. Whereas the house and farm have several different sounds, the castle only makes one sound: a fanfare. I thought there might be a clipclop over the bridge or something else, since the sets are similar in price and size.
B/c there aren't a lot of sounds associated with this toy, it's good for quieter play and gets a child to use his/her imagination as to what sounds would be associated with a castle. On the flip side, your child might be like mine and push the flags* over and over and over...
That being said, the castle is extremely cute. The two "towers" open up for play (although I miss the staircase and "hidden chamber" from the 1970s version). The dungeon can also serve as a stable for the dragon. *he fanfare comes when you press the flags atop the castle, the throne juts out onto the balcony and the fanfare plays. If you don't secure the king/queen in the throne, he/she goes flying out, which is terribly funny (for parent and child).
Another great thing about the castle set is that there are several cute "add-ons" like Sir Lance-A-Little, the fair maiden and the watchful woodsman. The castle also takes up less space than the farm and about the same space as the house.
All in all it's a good toy for an older toddler who's more into role play or the Little People rather than pushing buttons and hearing sounds. If you're looking for a Little People set for a younger child, you might want to choose the house or the farm set. They have more buttons to push and make more noises (the volume level is quite low on all three of these sets, esp. when compared to other toys I've looked at) which was more satisfying for my child early on.
What it comes with:
1 Table and chairs set
And of course all the fences and posts and such, but I personally think those are just a pain. The Little People sets are a little hard to connect especially when you are trying to connect 10-20 in a room, because you have to connect them a certain way and then are forced to arrange them awkwardly so you can get to everything if you're not in a huge space. So, I'm not sure what fence pieces come with it because I threw them in the closet.
There really aren't many features to this one. When you press the flag atop the castle, the throne will come forward and the torches light up and also fanfare. But, that is it. I wish it did a little something more. I'm all about "imagination toys", but if it's going to do one thing, it might as well have a little something extra to it or nothing at all. I was really into Polly Pockets when I was a little girl and I loved how they lit up in certain rooms of the home, etc. It's just a nice touch.
Overall, I think this is a cute toy that your child will enjoy.
