OMG for the life of me ... I cant decide!!
Well, in the end I picket Show Stable, because it was one of Germanys most common playsets back then and almost all memories I have from my childhood involve the Show Stable <3 It was a hard decision, Dream Castle came on close second!

I voted for Dream Castle because the first accessories I ever had came from it.
Current wish list: G1s: Cranberry Muffins, Baby Princess Sparkle (dark purple var.), Babies Diamond and Sapphire, TAF Buttons, MO Starhopper, Dazzleglow (white and blue heart versions), Princesses Taffeta, Moondust and Pristina, Magenta Satin 'N' Lace, G1 Dragons; Nirvanas: Firefly, Applebelle, Applescotch, any interesting Applejacks (esp. Colombian)!

The dream castle because when I was a child I wanted it alot. My parents agreed to get it for me because I went through a whole bunch of tests at the hospital at the time. I was very happy when I got it and it was the most played with as a kid.

I vote Dream Castle.  I didn’t have it as a child but I adored RAMC and even now when I want to paint a pony backdrop Dream Castle is the go to feature I want to include.

I did have the Nursery and that one comes in second for me

I voted for Dream Castle, but one of my biggest earliest memory was for my birthday for whatever reason Dad took me to Woolworths (out of town) and I picked out the show Stable.

I really can't remember if we made the special trip for the show stable, I almost have a feeling we did because I probably told him I had seen it in that store. Back in the day it wasn't like every single store on the planet carried every single MLP item. So there would have been no show stable say, in my town back then at any of the stores.

So I have a feeling dad took me to get me the show stable for my birthday. I remember standing in the isle with the pony section and him saying is that what you want. And I remember saying yes. And then I remember getting in the truck and holding the box in my lap all the way home. At the time it was my very first pony house/playset. So when I got home i distinctly remember cleaning out my closet, and setting the stable up in the foor of closet and putting all my ponies in there with said stable. My first ponies were Moondancer and Firefly but I can't remember who else I had but I'm thinking at most it was probably 5-10 maybe if that. I was sorta setting up that I was going to collect all the ponies on the backcard, etc.  :P

Yea, the sure don't fit in the closet anymore (LOL)
Probably doesn't own a stolen piece of the Taj Mahal.

Dream Castle is the one I immediately think of when I think "MLP playset". Then Paradise Estate.

While Paradise Estate is my favorite playset, I don't think it's the most iconic (although it's certainly up there, especially for those who grew up with the G1 Movie/TV series). It would probably have to be Dream Castle. Even if a pink castle is pretty generic, and there are other classic buildings with more unique looks that are specific to MLP (the Lullabye Nursery comes to mind), the Dream Castle stuck around and seems to be the one most people remember. It's probably no coincidence that every MLP generation has had a castle playset at some point.

I think it's gotta be Dream Castle. When we first meet the Little Ponies in Firefly's Adventure/ Rescue at Midnight Castle, they all come out of Dream Castle. I might be a little biased as I think it was probably my favorite playset as a kid (though I loved Lullabye Nursery and the Sweet Shop too). But honestly everyone loves castles right?
