Our daughter (10) has the castle… She loves it and it does come with little pieces (candles,plants,the rose in the glass…etc). So that might be a problem, but you don’t have to use them. Katy (our DD) uses her other dolls to play with. We originally saw this at our first official vist with DD at the resort gift shop and passed on it. When we got home and she started in on how she loved the REAL Castle, Well… it was a no brainer. She takes good care of it, so to us it will always be a good investment.
Hope this helps…:pirate:
