My Little Pony Equestria Crystal Empire Castle Review

My Little Pony was something I used to play with during my childhood. My eldest girl was very much into them and now my littlest daughter seems to be falling in love too. So when we were very kindly sent out the My Little Pony Equestria Crystal Empire Castle to review, you can only imagine how excited my youngest girl was.

Once I opened the package, my daughters face just lit up; followed by a “Whoooa! I want to play with that!” she told me. So we teamed up and started to open it all up to put our empire crystal castle together.

The plastic pieces were all a crystal blue colour and give off an effective and really pretty crystal castle effect. Once I had the base together, along with the stairs at either side of the castle I was a bit concerned if it would be sturdy enough. But so far, it seems to be just fine. In fact, once it was all assembled it was a really beautiful castle and my daughter couldn’t wait to start playing with it.

Along with the castle, we received Princess Cadence & Baby Flurry Heart including lots of little accessories. Now, like any parent you may be sigh or eye roll at the sight of ‘little accessories’ because they’re generally lost in record time. But the little gems clip onto the two crowns for Princess Cadence and they look very sweet on the turntable shelves.

My daughter loves to just sit and brush her pony’s hair before playing with her on the castle. This is something she really enjoys doing, so perhaps she’s getting into doing hair {just like her older sister did once upon a time!}.

To make the castle light up you pop in 3xAA batteries into the base, once done you press the heart in the middle of the floor down and what the magic happen.

A spinner beneath the floor will rotate and lights will flicker and twinkle. It’s really quite pretty and something my daughter loves to do, over and over and over again.

Now for the price and do I think it’s worth it…

This product is currently being sold for £31.99 {I had to shop around online for this price as a few other online stores are selling it for more} and I think that’s quite good. Anything above that and I couldn’t see me buying it. The quality of the product is good, it’s very lightweight and very pretty. My daughter really enjoys playing with it and I have even been asked to ask Santa for a few extra ponies. I may get on the phone to the big man himself eh... 😉
