Knight and dragons are some of the most fun themes to play with.  But dragons and knights aren’t the best of friends, are they?  Dragons can be a bit on the scary side, and knights generally want to poke and prod dragons in some not so nice ways.  But in the case of Mike the knight, this is far from  the truth.  Not only is Mike a nice knight, but his two best friends are dragons.

mike knight

Mike the Knight follows the tales of Mike as he learns to ‘be a knight – and do it right!’  Every story teaching a lesson on how to solve problems the right way, with courage and smarts.  Mike has some helpers too: his sister Evie, horse Galahad, and two dragon friends Squirt and Sparkie to help him on his journey to knighthood.  One of the most interesting play sets for Mike the Knight is the new Glendragon Castle Play set.  This play set features Glendragon castle, Mike the knight himself, as well as Galahad and of extras to round out a fun.  The castle itself has three floors of excitement and has both an interior play area as well s an exterior. From Evie’s potion room which flips out to the outer wall of the castle to a working drawbridge, the possibilities are only limited by your imagination.  There is a shield on the interior of the castle which activates over 20 sounds and phrases directly from Mike the Knight.  This button also activates the drawbridge so every quest begins with a nifty phrase.  There are over 10 additional play pieces including  a working catapult, zip line,  ladder, treasure chest, a fun day of knight training is only an imagination away.
