Royal Fun! - Zooble Review and Giveaway

CLOSED

I love to play.  I do!  My kids do, too.  So when I was offered an opportunity to review the Zooble King's Castle Playset, I jumped at the chance!


Isn't that the cutest little castle playset you're ever seen?  

Zooble is a family owned company in Vermont.  Jess from Zooble was very helpful and has been super kind throughout the last several weeks!  She certainly wants to make sure her customers are happy with their purchases!  And they are:


We had an ice storm and temporarily moved in with my parents just in case the power went out long-term.  (It didn't.)  Of course, we took our Zooble castle with us!  Little Lou loved playing with it!  She opened the little door and made all the people go inside for a party!


Somehow I've lost the pictures of Bugsy playing with the castle on his own several days later.  That boy has a huge imagination!  He laid on his belly for a good half hour playing with the figures.  He needed help to set the castle up (it kept falling over for him) but once it was up, those little characters got into some comic mischief!  He's a character himself!

We are really loving the Zooble castle playset!  The workmanship is beautiful!  The castle and "grounds" are made of thick felt, as are the clothes on the figurines.  Each of those little figures is made of wood.  They're wonderful!

My only complaint (and it's a tiny one) is that the hats are held on just by a couple stitches in the back, and I am afraid to play with them too much, for fear that the hats will fall off.  I've debated super gluing them right onto the little guys, but don't want to take away any of their charm!  Zooble has sold hundreds of these little figures and has NEVER had a complaint of hats falling off, though, and they are now adding a little dot of hot glue before shipping them!  "Problem" solved!

There are tons of other cute items in the Zooble shop, too!  Here's one of my favorites...it's new:


I think we might have to get that for Little Lou's birthday!  Wouldn't that be cute along with the castle set?

You can even get extra people for your castle set!
There are other things in the shop as well.  I'm in love with this little bowling set:


There are tons of other adorable items as well!  I love them all!  

You can buy a castle set just like the one I have for $28 from Zooble on Etsy!

OR

You can win a $25 Zooble gift card right here and choose anything in the shop!  This contest will end and a winner will be drawn at 11:59am EST on Tuesday, February 29, 2011.
