My review by Emptynester reviews and Grandson!
Imaginext Eagle Talon Castle:The new Imaginext Eagle Talon Castle features lights, sounds, and â€œAction Techâ€ technology to bring imaginations to life. “Action Tech” allows the Castle to magically recognize approaching Dragons, Ogres, and other attackers, signaling a response unique to each “Action Tech” accessory piece! Even better, the castle can expand from 20â€ out to 40â€ and is reconfigurable in different ways. This Castle comes loaded with play right out of the box with three figure activations. When you turn the center disc, the castle springs into Eagle defense mode! An eagle head pops out of the middle with an integrated disc launcher, â€œwingsâ€ fold down to shield the front windows, the central walls flip up to shield the interior of the castle and the drawbridge locks shut. All this happens to the sounds of a majestic eagle screeching and rocks grinding! Each turn disc on the outside towers shutters the windows to prepare for an attack as well! The Castle includes 3 figure turn discs, 2 catapults, 1 â€œAction Techâ€ cannon with 2 projectiles, 3 figures with helmets shields and swords, 8 firing discs for catapults and eagle head, a treasure chest, 2 ladders and 4 flags.
My Grandson Aiden and I had a play date this past Friday and we investigated the Imaginext Eagle Talon Castle. Aiden being 5 years old, and it is recommended for ages 3-8, I figured he was more then ready to be my helper in this review. We opened up a world of playtime with castles and imagination running wild, Aiden was looking for everything he could find to do first with the Castle and after I finally got him settled down enough to let me set up the cannon for firing and the catapults to release their discs he was at war before I knew it. I just slowly backed away and let me go at it. Watching his every move and facial expression. Aiden was completely engulfed in the Imaginext Castle for hours, I actually lost track he was loud but he was entertained with all the opening and closing of the all the doors and using the figures as men he named, after the kids in his class, and discovering everything there was to use on this amazing Toy.
Honestly I don’t think I have ever seen a toy with so many different options to choose from to move, inspire and create with.Â First it was him and Ben, then it was him and Kyle and they were battling dinosaurs… he had me laughing and giggling at his imagination and how his brain was working. Honestly I think this toy is so perfect for any little boy to engage in and use their imagination! To me the imagination is the key to any child’s self discovery, so they can find out exactly what they like and move forward in life with their choices.
