encourage creative play

Young children can be really rough on toys, so having a toy that is durable is one of many important factors when deciding on toys for kids.  Other important things to take into consideration are how fun it is, and if a child can use his or her imagination with it.  Imaginext is a great line of toys by Fisher Price that are not only wonderful with building a child’s imagination, but are also durable and fun.

Toys That Encourage Creative Play

Fisher Price first introduced the Imaginext line of toys in 2002.  Like the name sounds, these are toys that encourage creative play.  They first introduced the medieval line, which quickly expanded and each year since a new “world” has been introduced to the line.  Some of the worlds that are now available in the Imaginext line include Super Friends, Dinosaurs, Disney Pixar Cars and Toy Story, Castle, and so much more.  Within each world are several pieces, which is great for adding on to the set for holidays and birthdays.

Imaginext Eagle Talon Castle

Imaginext Eagle Talon Castle

The Imaginext Eagle Talon Castle is one of their most popular worlds.  It is a large castle that opens up into a world of fun for kids since it recognizes and responds to different accessories.  Kids can have a battle with outside forces trying to take over the castle with discs that can be activated into defense mode!  There are talons that lock the gate, shutters that barricade the windows and the eagle’s head is revealed & ready to fire at the enemy!  It is a world of medieval fun for kid’s ages 3 to 8 years of age. You can see how much my kids like it in the video below. The sound effects are so fun, they play with it all day and return to it the next morning. We have not even moved it out of the living room yet.

There are add-on items for this world, one of which is the Castle Dragon.  That dragon only heightens the fun of the castle since the dragon can roar by the control of a child and its wings expand automatically when lifted up off the ground.
