Product Review - Castle Cards

Anything that can keep and hold the attention of active boys (ages 5-12) that doesn't plug in is worth checking out. I bought a set of Castle Cards by Klutz (gotta love Klutz!) when we were studying the Middle Ages. Every now and again they rediscover them and play with nothing else for several days. This time around they even introduced little Lego characters into their play. They've been talking about pooling their money to purchase additional packs of cards so they can build "some REALLY big stuff."


  1. What a great idea! I will have to remember those for next year! ;) By the way, what sweet pictures of your boys!

  2. cool! I remember when we were kids we played with the dud base ball cards and made huge card houses. We spent hours at it.
