I spent 13 hours, spread over 2 days 3 nights, building this magnificent set. The attention to detail is truly amazing and neither video or pictures can do it justice.
Let us start with the sheer amount of pieces in various size, color, and shape.
I truly enjoyed the plethora of pieces and building types. The extremely thick manual and stickers come packaged in plastic without cardboard. The exposed brick stickers are laser cut and not just bricks printed on a larger gray background sticker.I was very concerned about the stickers being big and ugly. The set really is not complete without them. The archery area could also have used a little more detail as well.
I do wish the set had come with more characters.
I thought the piece count is a little misleading as there are so many tiny pieces utilized here. The price per piece is on point, but it would have been nice to have more of the larger pieces when able to be used.

I would avoid moving it at all costs for children under the age of 7. The final tower construction has the weakest structural integrity.
I was assembling, with both hands, and the tower buckled/shot out of my hands and onto floor. The base is very very solid, but the jump plate usage above is lacking.
I would be very careful about the handling of tower sections as well. The granddaughters love playing with the castle. Suzanne, the seller is super friendly and very prompt in response. The latest achievement is to replicate a 4000 pieces of majestic structure. Save for the uneven surface when the bricks are stack on top of each other. Castle main building second-floor room features buildable dark-blue curtains with curtain pole, ornate buildable candelabra and rose, and glass case elements. Castle main building third-floor room features a chest with book of spells, mop and bucket elements, and access to the main tower second-floor room. Castle main building fourth-floor bedroom features a detailed bed with decorative golden headboard elements. Main tower second-floor room includes a spinning wheel and access to the castle main building third-floor room. Main tower third-floor room features a chest containing brush, scissor and lock of black hair elements, plus a balcony with 2 stud shooters for a firework-display function. Main tower fourth-floor room features a golden mirror, plus red apple and glass vase elements. Main tower fifth-floor room features a window bench and an arched window. Also includes 2 frogs and a golden crown element. Remove part of the roof section to discover the glass slipper element and fairy-tale book element with printed cover. Launch the fireworks and let the magic begin!
This set offers an age-appropriate building experience for ages 16 and over. The picture on the box does not do it justice.
I love all the film references, the secret compartment and being able to shoot ‘fireworks’, though watch where they land as they do shoot out quite fast and being so small, can easily get lost.
You can probably request a new transfer though. The only downside for me was not enough figures.
Overall, a joy to build and now has pride of place on my dining table. So the build took me around 12-13 hours over the span of a few days to complete. Once you are all done with completing the construction of this set you’ll truly appreciate the time and thought that was put into creating and constructing this amazing piece of art.
I did go a little above and beyond by illuminating the entire castle.
I was able to do all of the lighting without gluing or drilling holes through the plastic. The back side of the castle is as detailed as the front, with all kinds of rooms for the mini-figures to play in.
I also wonder why some steps require two pieces where one would work fine. For example, why does the model use two 1×2 plates instead of one 2×4 plate?
I hope this isn’t an artificial way to increase the number of parts. As a warning: this model becomes very delicate, especially the upper tower sections. Make sure the upper floor and upper tower are securely locked into place before moving the castle.
