Tell me about it! I wanted it too-- so bad. I think I got the MLP castle though-- and I tried to make due, seriously.. but as a kid, I felt it just wasn't the same.

The only thing going for it the MLP castle mansion thing had was the pool. Which admittedly was pretty cool and nothing She-Ra or He-Man ever had. Still.

Imagine combining them together-- oh the hijinks that could be had! <3

Oh well, no sense in wishing things were different in the past-- but it would of been cool as hell to have had them both.

I remember a cousin having the Grayskull one and it was really cool. He wouldn't let us touch it, though. Didn't know there was a She-ra one, though. I want one now.

The mall in my town has this display and it has the Castle Greyskull and then She-Ra's castle set up along with all of action figures-- and it always fills me with such a sense of nostalgia.

It's like "Grabby-hands' whenever I walk past

We had Castle Greyskull and the She-Ra thing. They were pretty awesome. And I distinctly remember telling my parents that No, I did not want the She-Ra castle in the big multi-family yard sale because Yes, I still played with it. I told them to take the MLP mansion instead, but alas. Never to be seen again.

My brother had a Snake Man where you press a button under his rubber tail and his neck would shoot out. He was awesome, and way more fun than most of my toys. Except Littlest Pet Shop, those were the best.

Though I just looked them up and they were way more basic than I remember them being. My kid brain thought they were super detailed and crazy awesome, when really they just kinda look like a shell.

Also great, the Ewok village set my cousins had. Sadly, that was never one that made it down to us in the hand-me-down parade.

The Ewok village was my first thought reading this secret too! I even googled it.

I loved that playset.

(Anonymous) 2017-02-12 09:47 pm (UTC)(link)
I don't remember seeing these when I was a kid, but oh, man, if I had, I would've wanted these, too. Especially that Crystal Castle. I just liked toy houses/buildings in general when I was little, be they Barbie Dream Houses or the Playskool dollhouse (both of which I had) or the Fisher Price homes/main street/etc. Stuff like that.

Heck, I even took a Fisher Price kitchenette I had and turned that into an apartment complex for my dolls :p.

I wanted a Barbie plane just to pretend it was a spaceship and my dolls weren't naked, they were dressed in light pink spandex spacesuits! Dreamhouse and camper van I could and did build replicas out of carboard boxes, but plane/spaceship? nope; still bummed about this one.

(Anonymous) 2017-02-12 10:53 pm (UTC)(link)
I was jealous of friends that had those. But I was jealous of friends who had any of the big playsets because my parents never bought those.

I got the MLP castle but only because I bought it myself at a neighbor's garage sale.

I had the middle one! The best part was the wolf=head part, it was a microphone thing with a spring inside and you talked into it and sounded all echo-y.

I had a Barbie house too (this one) and probably used it more, because I did play with dolls a lot and that was better scaled to them.

But I definitely played with my Star Wars micro machines on Skull Mountain too!

I had Snake Mountain, too. I used it so much to do Darth Vader's voice.

Oh man...I had the She-Ra castle and the My Little Pony Show Stable as a kid, and I remember so many other girls at school envying me for them. I seriously wish my mom hadn't gotten rid of them years ago in a garage sale, because you just don't see that stuff anywhere anymore.

At least I still have all my cool old Lego sets... >_>

(Anonymous) 2017-02-13 12:44 am (UTC)(link)
Don't write off the idea of getting them for yourself now. My mom wouldn't let me have a My Pet Monster when I was a kid, so I bought one for myself when I was in my twenties. It was VERY satisfying. His name is Ralph and I still have him.

I never saw/played with any of these, but I had a friend who had a bunch of Polly Pockets and knock-offs of them, and they were AWESOME. I wanted them so bad.

(Anonymous) 2017-02-13 01:36 am (UTC)(link)
Man, I remember wanting these as well as a Barbie dreamhouse and an American Girl doll. I ended up buying the doll for myself as an adult and it felt pretty sweet to finally own one.

(Anonymous) 2017-02-13 01:49 am (UTC)(link)
I was clearly a blessed child, as we had a Castle Greyskull *and* a Barbie Dream House (the latter was given to us by a neighbor who got it from a garage sale and was generally home to either Ninja Turtles or dinosaurs depending on my sister and I weren't big Barbie kids). We also had a My Little Pony castle and a Superfriends Hall of Justice.

I loved that castle. I had the She-ra one and it was so pretty and there were clear goblets and a gorgeous bed...I think my brother had the others. I had the pony stuff too and say what you will about the cartoons, but the toys were better back then than compared to they. They were 3d and solid these new pony castles look 2d and you just blow on it and they fall over.

I had Crystal Castle, too. I got into Princess of Power when they were being discontinued, and I remember trying to get my parents to buy me as much of it as was still available before it was all gone forever...

If you had a friend with one of these, you knew it was on.
