Castle 07 Designer Feedback
Ben E. 12 VIII 07

Several months ago we had a thread asking our questions about the Castle 2007 sets. Matthew Ashton, the Castle Product Lead Designer, has been kind enough to respond. Check out his in depth Castle article.

Matt and the other Castle designers are very busy and will not be able to answer any follow up questions. They likely will read and see your comments. Please respond to this article in the original forum thread.

Idea Book 250
Yaron Dori and Ben Ellermann 20 VII 04

During the 1980's and 1990's idea books were produced and sold from Shop at Home. These booklets offered hundreds of creation ideas for children. The creations were made entirely from currently available sets. Back when system sets in all themes contained large numbers of basic bricks and plates, a child could make most small idea book creations while being inspired to create their own castle world.

Our article, which will be spread out over several weeks, focuses on the castle creations of 250 Idea Book which was released in 1987. Many of the 33 creations will be discussed. Each one has been built and photographed to the best of our ability. We recommend using pieces from sets available in 1984-1987 but pieces can also be found in sets from other years. Discuss the article here.
