Starcastle :: Individual Playsets
"Welcome to the Starcastle kingdom, where all your dreams come true! Unlock the magic and become the princess you always wanted to be!"
Starcastle was produced by Trendmasters from 1995 and were a series of plastic castles which opened up via a key to reveal the inner living and playing space, and came with many little accessories each. In 2001 they introduced Starcastles with Stardancer Dolls, which were better known as Skydancer dolls. After Trendmasters ceased trading in 2002 (brought up by Jakks Pacific) at least three more castles were made for Disney using the old moulds with a fairytale princess theme. Just to make things even more confusing, Trendmasters produced several Starcastles in a variety of colours too!
