Offer Magnificent King-sized Fun and Learning
As visitors explore The Amazing Castle and its eight themed areas, they are introduced to seven storybook characters who are part of the castle community. From the carpenter to the seamstress, each character has a special role. As they move through the castle, village visitors playfully explore the interconnectedness of community members in a setting inspired by fantasy and history.
Pretend play is known for its ability to serve the development of the whole child - social, emotional, physical and cognitive. In The Amazing Castle, pretend play is king! Benefits for children include using more complex words and sentences, developing narrative abilities, controlling impulses, navigating complex social situations, and using their whole bodies to play and learn.
