This was my first castle set! My dad bought it "for me" when I was 6 and wouldn't let me play with it for almost a whole year.
I remember it sitting up where I couldn't get to it which made me want it all the the more. When I finally got it I played with it constantly. I even took it in the bath.
I still have all the peices, although some of the men are worse for wear.
As for the parts, I never liked those white bendy things. I think they look too space-like so I always let my astronauts use them. They are also really dirty and disgusting looking now.

As a kid it never occured to me that they needed paddles. I just sent the boat where it had to go and they had their spears for attacking all the local villages!
