A Kids Gift Guide to a Medieval Christmas!

I enjoy having a general gift theme, and this year Santa shopped off this kids gift guide for a medieval Christmas for the boys.

Hopefully you find something of interest on  my Medieval Kids Gift Guide.

1. Melissa and Doug Castle

Medieval Gift Guide - Gifts for Kids
This gift really ties it all together, and is a shared gift the boys received. I’ve liked the look of this castle for a couple years, and it does not disappoint! There is a draw bridge and a neat trap door that the boys enjoy hiding toys under.

As an alternative, we bought the Melissa and Doug castle blocks in 2013, and they also offer a miniature fold and go castle.

Price Range: Around $75 Amazon

Recommended Age: 3+

2. Schleich Figures

These figures are available locally (at Meijer) and online, so I had to grab some for the kids. One really neat bonus? The one on the horse can be taken off as he is only attached by a magnet.

Price Range: $5-20 Amazon

Recommended Age: 4+

3. Papo Figures

These are much like the Schleich figures mentioned above. Actually, Merlin is pictured up above in the castle.

Price Range: $5-20 Amazon

Recommended Age: 4+

4. Dragon Figures

Knights fight dragons, of course. No medieval kids gift guide would be complete without them.

Price Range: All price points Amazon

Recommended Age: 4+

5. Melissa and Doug figures

We actually aren’t getting these as of right now, but they are meant to go with the castle. These are an alternative to the plastic styles elsewhere.

Price Range: Under $20 – Castle Wooden Figure Set  Amazon – Royal Family  Amazon

Recommended Age: 3+

6. Wooden Princess Magnets

Let’s face it, princesses come to mind first for most people when they think about castles. We don’t have this set, but we have other wooden magnets from Melissa and Doug, and we just love the quality. Evan plays with them often.

Price Range: Under $10 Amazon

Recommended Age: 24 months+

BONUS! This neat princess magnetic dress-up is another option! Evan loves his magnetic dress-up sets from Melissa and Doug. This set is under $10 on Amazon. You can get other magnetic dress-up sets here at Amazon, including Elsa and  Sophia the First.

7. Playmobil figures

Oliver is only a year and a half, but loves to play with his brothers things. He’s too old to be interested in “baby” toys, but we don’t want him ruining his brother’s figures. These seem a bit more durable, and they actually fit though the trap door in the castle.

Price Range: Mostly $10-30 Amazon

Recommended Age: 4+

8. Books

Price Range: All Prices

Recommended Age: All Ages

9. Stuffed Dragon


Price Range: Around $10 on Amazon

Recommended Age: 6 months+

10. Art: Coloring, Drawing, Painting

Price Range: $3+ for coloring books $10+ for drawing/painting

Recommended Age: 5+

11. LEGO

LEGOs are a favorite around here. As of Evan’s birthday, we began to transition Evan up to the “normal” smaller LEGOs, but we are still bringing the DUPLOs in for Oliver. Oliver got this DUPLO Town Treasure set for Christmas.

Price Range: All prices

Recommended Age: Some for everybody, 2+

  1. What a bunch of cool stuff! We have a lot of the things in our kids’ playroom posted here and they love playing with them. I’d never heard of the Papo figures before we have the Schleich ones. My son and daughter particularly like the dragons!

  2. I like the idea of having a theme for Christmas! The castle looks like a really fun gift especially with all the figures. I’m wondering if you are doing a medieval theme with your Christmas decorations and dinner as well?

  3. This is a wonderful git guide for medieval items for kids of all ages. I love the stuffed dragon fo my grandbabies. I also appreciate the links to Amazon.
