Knights Empire Castle by Playmobil

Includes a trapdoor in the tower, and a drawbridge to protect against possible enemy attack. A functional hoist, king`s throne and prisoner`s dungeon are also included.
Playmobil's Knight's Empire Castle uses the company's new SystemX, which is designed for shorter assembly time and durability. Comes with a working gate and dungeon and looks like the classic friendly Playmobil settings of years past. Suggested add-on, the Red Dragon (because you always need a dragon), is sold separately. Projectile cannons sold separately. Most kids love the action of projectiles until one hits them.Toy Wishes Award
