These magical wooden castles will amaze children and adults alike. Each castle is created from one piece of wood and is based on a design that dates all the way back to the 1700's. Handcrafted right here in Australia, they are an incredibly unique toy, perfect for imaginative storytelling, and are stunning as a display piece. What looks like a normal piece of wood, becomes a world full of wonder when you turn it upside down and the castle is revealed in all it's glory! (See below for detailed instructions on how to open and close the castle).
There are many different species of wood that are used which include Jacaranda, Poplar, Almond, Olive, Grevillea, Gidgee, and Eucalyptus burls, just to name a few. Each Castle is a one of a kind work of art that will be treasured for generations.
Available in various styles, woods and sizes.
Measurements: L: 18cm W: 14cm H: 19cm
Instructions: To reveal or open the castle, with a sharp 'flick' turn the block upside down. The smaller pieces will fall into position and wedge into place. With some harder woods you may need to gently pull on the some of the pieces to ensure they are pulled firmly into place.
To close the castle, turn it upside down and with an open hand, firmly push the the castle into the palm of your hand, almost as if you were smacking it. If the castle is too large to hold with one hand, hold it upside down with both hands and lower it onto a table using a gentle tapping motion to loosen the pieces so they fall back into place. If you try to close the castle while it's upright, some of the pieces may come loose. To put any loose pieces back, turn the castle upside down again (making sure all the other pieces are down), ensure the loose piece is at the correct angle and the gently slot it back into position. DO NOT USE ANY FORCE. If it's in the correct position it will slide easily back into place, if it doesn't simply adjust the angle and try again.
