The Castle of Courage from ELC
NB – if you’re here looking for the instructions to ELC’s Castle Of Courage, just click here. We found them for you!
I wasn’t sure either of my boys would be interested in the Castle of Courage. Neither of them has shown much interest in any sort of role-play game, but they were both keen to help me get on and build the castle, which was a bit of a challenge…
There are a LOT of pieces, but fortunately the instructions are clear and concise and once I had all the pieces laid out in order – and David had taken Joe away so the pieces wouldn’t all get flung around the room – it was relatively easy to build. It was fun seeing the castle coming together and it looked extremely impressive once built.
Harry particularly loved the working drawbridge and played for ages with the Knights, mainly flinging them off the battlements. Joe loved climbing in and out of the castle and waving the flags. The only problem is that the castle takes up a lot of room. Playing with it one day, Joe realised how easy it was to take apart and had it entirely dismantled in minutes (while Harry screamed and tried to stop him).
We’ll definitely be building it again… once we find the instructions.
