With the summer holidays ahead of us, I’m compiling a list of days out, games, activities and fun things to do over the next 6 weeks. When we were sent the Qixels Kingdom – Castle Attack Playset I inwardly groaned. I thought it would be one of those activities where the kids need loads of help and you can’t get anything else done. I’m pleased to say I was wrong. Both C, 7, and Lissylou, 5, were able to easily play with the set.
The Qixels Kingdom – Castle Attack Playset comprises a castle that you can set up in different ways and the cubes to help make the play characters.
The kit includes the peg boards on which to create your characters and easy to follow picture instructions to make sure you can get them just right. I was impressed by how easy they were to do and the bold colours and styling of the characters.
It’s nice to find a Playset that has a genuine creative edge but that is also boy-friendly. Lissylou liked the Qixels Kingdom – Castle Attack Playset too which made it a great Playset for them to create and play with together.
Once they’ve created the characters all you do is spray them with water. Just simple, plain water. It only takes 30 minutes to set the cubes, although it does recommend you also spray the back of the characters to give them extra strength. We fix this with each character and it definitely made them stronger.
Both kids highly recommend the Qixels Kingdom – Castle Attack Playset and at £29.99 I feel that it offers good play value, both in the time taken to make the characters ( around 40 minutes per character) and in the later play value. I would buy more sets in the future to further extend the set.
