EZ Fort from Prezzy Box: A Review

Back in April

We were send an EZ Fort: Fairy Tale Castle Construction Set

To test and review

My children love making dens

It is something they often do with Daddy

I thought that this kit would help them

To become more independent den makers

Help me be more involved

(I am not a natural creator of dens!)

The suggested age is 3+

So I had hoped that Bea could help with the construction too

When the kit arrived

We were very excited to investigate the parts

And start putting pieces together

The poles and balls should be simple to click together

But we found them to be very stiff

Perhaps because the set was new?

All the children wanted to have a go

To click and build

But with all their strength and concentration

It was still too hard

For our 6 year olds and 2.5 year old

They were unable to make the connections independently

Daddy stepped in and helped to build a castle

For his princesses and their loyal knight

He was quickly able to construct the fort

To the children’s delight

With walls and a roof

It was a good den skeleton

The covering was more than a little scant

The pink fabric is just not big enough

To cover the poles to make a fairy tale den

This was quite a disappointment

To the waiting fairy tale characters

The EZ Fort Fairy Tale Castle is available from Prezzybox

It costs £39.99

Though as I write this it is reduced to just

£27.27

I think that this kit is fun for a rainy day

I think that it is a good family activity

I think that the kit can provide the start of a good den

But to be a great den it needs to be added to

Perhaps that is one of its strengths?

It provides a starting point

From which your imagination can take you anywhere

From which a child’s imagination can take them anywhere

This EZ Fort set would be a lovely gift for budding castle creators

The perfect present for children aged 5+

Who believe in once upon a time

And want to set the scene for their own happy ending

As a family project

The EZ Fort has made my tribe very happy indeed

We think it could be the start of a new chapter

In your own fairy story

Let the adventure begin!
