Fisher Price® Imaginext® Eagle Talon Castle (Review)
As you can see from this photo of assorted toys my boys have fallen in love with Fisher Price® Imaginext® brand! Any holiday or special gifting occasion- it is our “go-to, must-see & gotta have” section in the store!
This past holiday season, Hayden zeroed in on the Fisher Price® Imaginext® Eagle Talon Castle and it was all we heard about! At 2.5 years old, it was the first time he really expressed a desire for a particular toy. He would see it, in the store and want to see how all of the accessories interacted! (Sometimes, this could be problematic for us, due to his age! Lol). His excitement, really energized the gift giving mood! I know I looked forward to that early holiday morning, as much as he did!
We had previously bought Fisher Price® Imaginext® planes, trucks and action figures, so we were confident in the quality and value. What I was not expecting, was how this product would aid (us as a family) in creative play during the winter months.
The boys played well together (yes, even Henry at 8 months old got into the supervised action! Of course with a baby, we had to make sure some of the pieces were put out of reach.
The suggested age on most products in this series is 3-8 years old).
Hayden would ask his dad as soon as he got home to “play castle” (and this could be after lots of earlier play with mommy)! It was really not a surprise that shortly after receiving the castle, Hayden knew he wanted to expand his collection and has repeatedly requested the Ogre.
So for his birthday, his long wait will end! SSSSSHHHH!
The toys in the Fisher Price® Imaginext® Eagle Talon Castle series, recognize and communicate with several others using Action Tech™ technology! My husband and I, kept saying we wished toys were this advanced when were little! The lights, sounds and action of this castle has definitely been a favorite for the family!
I was a bit hesitant on the size of the castle (20″- 42″) but it is so easy to expand and folds so neatly to store. Both boys, enjoy it so much, the castle is truly a 360 degree centerpiece in a lot of their adventures! NOTE: My nieces ages 3 and 5, have also gotten into and enjoy the festivities!

The only negative I can think of, is I would like to be able to order replacement pieces of the various projectiles that come with each series piece. Each toy seems to have its own firing/flying object and it would be really nice to replace them as they are small and easily misplaced.
Interactive companion pieces (not included with Fisher Price® Imaginext® Eagle Talon Castle) Dragon, Ogre, Sir Angus& horse, Sea Dragon, Battering ram and more! Check online for the Imaginext® Eagle Talon Castle and/or your local stores, as selections available may vary!
