For this post, we will be taking a look with both The Princess Sofia the First Magical Talking Castle and Royal Family Gift Set by Mattel. They are sold separately but they definitely go well together if your kid is also a fan of her whole Royal Family. Also there is a special feature of the castle that these different figures can unlock.
First up is the Princess Sofia the First Magical Talking Castle. The front side is actually simple with purple ornate doors that can be opened. Flipped the castle and the back opens up into two-storey with different parts of the castle where Sofia and her friends can play. It is complete with accessories such as bed, table, plates, and picnic lunch. The castle comes with a 3-inch Sofia the First doll and clover.
Other cute features included in the toy castle are the bench by the bay window where clover can actually hide in it, and the stair banister has a clip for the dolls so Sofia and her friends can slide up and down.
What makes this toy castles seem magical compared to other dollhouses/castles is that it comes with a magical talking base. It adds life to the figures like Sofia, clover, her family, and friends to say more than 10 phrases that are based from the hit TV series n their actual voice similar to Disney Sofia the First Magical Talking Castle. Simply place Sofia or clover on the talking base and hear them speak.
Also other Sofia the First 3-inch-dolls that are compatible with the toy castle can unlock more than 35 phrases. Below are some that can be bought separately.
