This soft “castle” is ideal for my one year old granddaughter. She will be able to open it easily with the small Velcro latch. At her age, babies love to dump and fill; this toy is perfect for that. The princess doll crinkles, the star wand squeaks, the horse whinnies, and the mirror will reflect her face. These are sure to fascinate her. All the objects are small, so easily held by tiny hands. Her name embroidered on the top looks perfect, and she will be able to carry it with the handle.
