An imaginary Play World your child controls

Explore Nicky’s Castle with friends Princess Tara, Prince Tom, and, of course, Nicky the Dragon.

Nicky’s Make Believe Castle lets children step into a world of make believe in which they can make princesses run or jump, princes dance or do a somersault, and Nicky the dragon take a nap, giggle, or stamp his foot in a fit of dragon pique. Endless variations mean hours of ever-changing, imaginative play.

“Castle is a software toy that puts children’s imaginations in charge. They learn through play as they always did” Dr. Seymour Papert, father of educational computing, Professor Emeritus of the MIT Media Lab and winner Software Publisher’s Association Lifetime Achievement award

The power of imaginary play:
Play is essential in the lives of young children providing them with dynamic, entertaining settings where they explore a variety of ideas and interactions. Studies show that make-believe play enriches language development, strengthens memory and helps develop reasoning abilities, as well as creativity and inventiveness.

As children play, they learn. And as they explore imaginary worlds, children engage in activities that have a significant impact on their understanding of the world around them.

In Nicky’s Make Believe Castle, there are no pre-determined scenarios or scripts to limit your child’s imaginative fun. Your children enter a unique imaginary world, where play friends come alive and where children decide what each friend will do!

Expand Your Child's Imagination

This is an incredible game which allows children to explore the realms of a castle and interact characters with each other. If they can imagine the feat, they can perform it in this 'make-believe' castle!!!!!!
