I was so excited to receive My Little Pony Princess Palace seeing as my three year old daughter loves the show. I’m sure I’d love it too if colorful ponys were still my thing, but it’s a cute show and a cute toy nonetheless.
This great toy set comes with 20+ accessories as advertised on the box. These accessories include books, shoes, a telescope, a cape, mini hangers, a crown with additional crown accessories, hair barrettes, and a few other small accessories.
Needless to say–I would not recommend this toy set for small children.I feel that this toy would be best suitable for children who are 4 YOA and older. In that age range, kids have wild imaginations and can be creative enough to put plenty of pieces into play, rather than drooling all over the pieces and stashing them between sofa cushions.
MLP Crystal Princess Palace does require adult assembly with no tools needing to be utilized in the process. I’d say this takes anywhere between 10-20 minutes, you’ll hardly even break a sweat.
A really interesting and fun idea I noticed about the palace is that it can be connected with an additional MLP playset–the Royal Wedding Castle Playset, which has to be purchased separately. If you have a big MLP fanatic at home, this is a great feature and agreat way for your child to come up with new creative ways to play. A random reason as to why I really like this feature, is that the Crystal Palace doesn’t look incomplete without the Wedding castle playset, so it never feels like you or your child are ever missing out on anything.
The pony that is included (Princess Twilight Sparkle), has the ability to move her wings when you press on her head–how amusing is that?! For little girls anyway…ehem ehem.
This set is a great pastime for young children and a great way for parents to get a small break. Your child will have loads of fun playing with all the different pieces and extending their imagination. I know if I were 5 all over again, I’d be ecstatic to receive this set as a gift and it’d be so much fun to unwrap the decently sized box.
If you have a little princess of your own, this is a fabulous way to make her happy!
