There is something truly noteworthy about toys that are designed for children aged 4+ but which can still inspire pleasure and creativity in a teenager. Recently I saw this in action when the teenage son of friends I was visiting played for 45 minutes with my 4 year old grandson and a bucketful of PLAYMOBIL toys.
The red dragon designed Rock Castle is as intimidating as it is fun. Built on a bed of rocks, this Castle challenges anyone who wants to enter - especially since a camouflaged trap door lies just behind the castle door! With 3 levels of play, the Rock Castle also features a castle dungeon for enemies, 4 knight figures, a horse, many different weapons, a treasure chest, and other realistic details to make this ghoulish castle more authentic. $79.99.

Viking Fortress is the stage for the following story line: During the last battle against the wild barbarians the Vikings managed to capture one of their leaders. Now their prisoner sits in the escape-proof prison cage of the Viking bastion and is pulled up to a lofty position far above the sea by the fearless warriors. From their lookout tower they keep a constant watch so that no movement on the horizon escapes them. When will the barbarians launch their next attach on the bastion and try to free their comrade?! $39.99. Available at fine toy stores or call 800-351-8697 or click here.

The mysterious Pirate Lagoon is a perfect pirate hideaway. The pirates make camp there with the local wildlife --a toucan, parrot, and pelicans. A dangerous floating shark guards the lagoon entrance.

Additionally, the pirates are equipped with a ladder, furniture, fruit, goblets, a candlestick, a manually operated safety-shooting cannon, and other items to defend their loot. The main structure has a secret door and a prison with break-away bars. There is even a deck of cards so that the pirates have something to do in their leisure time! $84.99.
