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.

Sadly this product is no longer available but check out the ELC website for other great items!

A 70's child, I’ve been married for a Very Long Time, and appear to have made four children, and collected one large and useless dog along the way. I work, I have four children, I have a dog… ergo, I do not do dusting or ironing. I began LittleStuff back in (gulp) 2004. I like huge mugs of tea. And Coffee. And Cake. And a steaming cone of crispy fresh fluffy chips, smothered in salt and vinegar. #healthyeater When I grow up I am going to be quietly graceful, organised and wear lipstick every day. In the meantime I *may* have a slight butterfly-brain issue.

  1. I’ve just moved and taken the said ‘Castle of Courage’ out of storage – it needs a heck of a lot of courage to put it back together again with NO instructions – can you help in the reconstruction?

  2. Further to the above – I must be a self confessed genius!!! Actually, not – I have managed to get it all together but ended up with two spare pieces – they are pentagon-ish shape and look like part of the walk way but I can@t find a way to attach them ……. no doubt I’ll have to take it apart and start again. Any ideas????

    Just go to the help pages and type instuctions in the “our products section” and it will give you a whole host of instuctions for current and previous toys they have sold over the years. The castle of courage is available to download.
    Hope this helps.
