Additional Product Information From The Web: Knights of Knowledge is a novel interactive learning toy from VTech which doubles as a traditional play set with removable figures. It's made from sturdy moulded plastic in the form of a medieval castle, the drawbridge of which folds down to reveal the keyboard, complete with "Excalibur" styled joystick. The castle interior is a rather splendid throne room, with a secret door behind the throne that revolves to reveal a hidden treasure chest. Perched atop one of the turrets on the castle ramparts is a menacing dragon, jealously guarding its own treasure hoard. 
The object of the interactive game aspect of Knights of Knowledge is to relieve the dragon of its haul. This is achieved by correctly solving a series of educational tasks. These are displayed on the LCD screen set into the dragon's tower. In order to start the game, you need to place one of the three playing figures on the shield on the keyboard. The puzzles you have to solve correspond to the particular skills of the character. King Letterman is the champion of reading, spelling and vocabulary games, Sir Count-a-Lot specialises in mathematical concepts such as addition and subtraction and Lady Logic deals with critical thinking and reasoning tasks such as spotting similarities and differences. You have the opportunity have a practice session first using the Training Mode before being thrust into full Adventure Mode. If you don't want to tackle the tasks in the order set out in the game, there's also a Free Play Mode that enables you to move one or more of the characters around the castle at once. 
A particularly enjoyable feature is the Dungeon stage of the game, where if you answer a question incorrectly, the figurine drops through a trap door into the dungeon below. Young players will also enjoy the alligator that unexpectedly pops out from its hiding place behind a door.
