Hey man. I have been looking for this castle FOREVER. What brand is it?? Is it for sale??

ghost

brandon ~
hey, yeah, good luck finding one since i can't find a brand, only made in china on the bottom. we got these both from a mail order company in the 90's that sold import items in bulk, thus why we bought 2. i only sell my duplicates so no i'm afraid it's not for sale. my ebay link has anything i'm selling right now.. but thanks for visiting!

Hannah

I've been looking for this forever, too. I had one when I was four, only the drawbridge door was pink and all the inside doors were yellow. I used to catch fireflies and put them in the dungeon, but they always squeezed through the bars.

ghost

lol! :D

Gayla

Can you tell me who makes this castle and where I can get one just like it?

ghost

check out the other comments..
sorry i can't help much ~

Steve

I'm very happy I stumbled upon your website on my search for this castle playset but sad their is no brand information. Do you remember the name of the mail order company, I know it has been a very long time since then haha. Thank you ahead of time :D

Steve

I even tried a reverse image search which brought me nothing but now that I have a photo the search will get a little better thank you.

ghost

steve ~
you know it was just some import company that we got a catalog from my that my husband found at work, it was cheap because they sold everything in multiples, clothes, toys, office stuff.. the company's probably long gone.. i think i had to buy 3 of these castles to get the price, i kept one of each kind & gave the third to my niece as a gift.. funny how many people still remember these little toys! i wish i could be more help..

omg! I, well you found it! I was at the store and seen a castle with horse and carage. i thought the horse and carage looked familiar but thats it. Then I remembered my old castle. Soon as I seen your pictures it all came back! thank you!! ^_^

brenda

another toy lost & found :)

misty

I have one of these... are they worth much? I know nothing about it..

ghost

hi misty,
as you can see lots of people remember these & are looking for them, they were imports & hard to find now.. i don't know how much you could get for one, but i remember seeing alot of people talking about them & linking here from a redit forum, if you could still find that thread, people there may be interested rather than just take your chance selling on ebay..
good luck,

JMC

These were a lot of fun. Loved the catapults and the little knights.

Aaron Hardy

I have this castle. I found it in the thrift store without the extra accessories or action figures. I bought it, revamped it and got some miniature knights to go with it. check me out on instagram to see it tattoo_ace

ghost

so many people remember this old castle! your version looks great, me & mr dad like to create mini houses together, check out down left in the sidebar for a bunch, right now we're working on one called 'innsmouth house' with a lovecraftian theme :)

Iris

I have this castle too since 1998
