I liked castles when I was small. There’s something about hand-to-hand combat that guns and long-range attacks don’t have. I remember being in a shop once and seeing a plastic castle for sale. My dad refused to buy it, saying that he would make one for me instead when we got home.

This would be an excellent centre piece for a Christmas present. You could then convince Granny to buy the dragon to go with it and Uncle to buy the battering ram and… Well, this is all assuming the child likes knights and castles, King Arthur and Prince Valiant.And if they don’t, they really should.
