Two variations of a popular castle and knight set from the ’50s. There were many such sets, including one featuring Robin Hood and his Merry Men.

Prince Valiant is an Arthurian adventure comic strip created by Hal Foster in 1937. It’s still running today under different authors. A live action film adaptation appeared in 1954, with Robert Wagner cast as the Prince.

    I snuck my Prince Valiant set from under my mother’s bed and put it together before Christmas. Then I put it back under the bed. LOVED IT SO MUCH!
