With the school summer holidays looming, or already under way for some, cheap ways to keep the kids busy are on lots of shopping lists right now. This Chad Valley 2-in-1 Colour In Castle looks like it will provide hours of entertainment, and it's only £4.99.
It's a cardboard cut out castle, with lots of detailed drawings all ready to colour in. One side is more of a 'princess' castle, and the other is a 'forest fortress', so you can choose which side to decorate or just do both. Then it can be used as a little play house or mini den.
With it being cardboard it's not going to stand up to much rowdy playing, but for less than a fiver I'm more than willing to give it a go. I think it's going in the cupboard for rainy days and I think my kids will both get a lot of enjoyment out of this.
Stocks are widely available, both for the free reserve and collect, and for the home delivery service which adds another £3.95 to your order.
