My Little Pony Dream Castle revisited

I think that my favourite birthday present ever was the My Little Pony Dream Castle, received on my 7th birthday. I was delighted with it, and it had a lot of play. It's one of the toys that I've held on to, and it's been up in the loft along with a box of the ponies and accessories.

We're in the process of going through the loft thinking about moving house, and so I hauled it down for Harry to play with. It's a bit battered after being well loved for many years, and some of the bits and pieces are missing.

I showed Harry how to set up the castle and left him to it. He quickly designated Mummy, Daddy, Harry and Mia ponies as Mia looked on with interest.

He brushed their hair with the little brushes and gave the baby pony (Blossom) her bottle, then put her down for a nap in the playpen. He was also fascinated by the drawbridge which goes up and down when you turn the handle. He made up all sorts of little role play games with it.

Although it wasn't long before Lightning McQueen came to visit!
