Finally Girly Stuff From LEGO with Their Friends Sets
Little Girls Love The LEGO Friends Sets
The LEGO Friends Sets is a girl themed building toy where girls can build, play and act out the scenes. These sets are loved by little girls who will spend hours on them. It has colors and themes that girls love and the mini figures are designed with girls in mind too.
They are great as the children can play with what they create and interact with it. When they create something they get a sense of achievement and it gets their brains working as it stimulates their creativity and imagination and lets them create and build the sets.
Olivia's Tree House 3065 Is Great Fun
Find some Friends
More on the Tree House
LEGO Friends Olivia's Tree House is great for fun and using the mind some girls are building the tree house all by themselves at only six.
The tree house has some lovely touches including some ladders that swing up and down and a small secret hiding place for treasure,. There is also a cute silver grey cat and a little bird..
If you have regular mini figures they can also be used and fit nicely in the set and if you want to your little boy can combine his figures and join in the fun.
There are instructions that you can follow but you don't have to if you don't want to as you can customize the set if you want to.
These sets are really comprehensive and include all sorts of things like the figures themselves and all the furniture and accessories like toilets and chars etc. There's things for baking.
What I like about these sets is not only are they complete on their own they are also compatible with other lego sets which means you can mix and match and expand your collection as much as you want.
Lego is timeless and inspires in encourages a child's imagination and creativity. Olivia's House is in every sense of the word a proper and fully furnished dolls house. ~These sets are different in that they are designed not only with the subjects that girls might like but also in the way they play. A girl will not only build but play as they do so.
Lego is well known for it’s quality and many an adult has fond childhood memories of playing lego. I don’t know about you but I never had such a lovely set as this. Lego has come a long way in the last few years. This is a set any child would be proud to have.
City Park Cafe for Budding Chefs
City Park Cafe
The LEGO Friends City Park Cafe hasn't so much building as some of the others as much of this set is designed more for playing with lots of things you would expect in a cafe like utensils, food and other accessories. It competes will with the other companies similarly themed toys but not so well against other Lego building sets.
There are a few stickers/decals with this set that can be hard to put on so your child may need a bit of help. Also the roof is tough to snap on as well but it is a great set that many little girls love.

Little Vets Will Love The Heartlake Vet
The LEGO Friends Heartlake Vet set takes about 4 hours for a young child to build. It has easy to follow instructions and the pieces come in four separate bags that are numbered in order to make building easier.
Once built you can play at being the vet with the little figures.
Lego have thought this out really well and there is everything you would expect a modern vets to have including: instruments and an exam table, an ex-ray machine, a computer and phone, a bed for the pets and a cart to bring them to and from the vets. They even have an exam table and instruments so you can operate! Plus many other pieces.
This is a great set that animal loving girls will love to bits!

Explore The World with the Adventure Camper
LEGO Friends 3184 Adventure Camper has lots of parts including the camper itself and a tow attachment with wheels for it, a stool, 2 bikes, a picnicking table. It even has a surfboard, TV and cutlery plus many more pieces. There are 2 Lego friends doll also included.
Building the camper is a bit more difficult then building some of the other sets in the series as it is more car based mechanics. Again the bags are separate and in order of usages to make it easier.
Poor LEGO Can't Win!
But they Have!
LEGO have been heavily criticized for stereotyping their Lego sets when they created their LEGO themes aimed at girls. Yet they have obviously fulfilled a need as lots of young girls loved these sets and are excited about getting them, building and then playing with them.
Lots of mothers had previously criticized Lego for NOT providing girly stuff so for Lego it would be a no win situation - except these LEGO friends are going down a storm. Girls love them.
The children are saying what they need and want. Besides there is nothing stopping them from having both girly and non girly sets if that is what they want. If the child needs to express their girly side is not denying that and forcing gender neutral equally bad?
I think a comment by one mother sums it up really " I think these sets were created with girls play styles in mind-- girls tend to want to build stories while boys are more focused on the item itself.", and that from someone who was skeptical of girly themed things.
Yes the colors are girly yet are the themes really? When I was a kid I wanted to play with Meccano and was refused because I was a girl! It wasn't allowed in school. Yet these sets would have girls owning and running a cafe or being or running a vets practice, exploring the world and building things. Things have improved but girls still need to play in their own way.
The word is out, bring on the girly stuff!
Especially For Horse Lovers Is The Heartlake Stables
LEGO Friends 3189 Heartlake Stables is without doubt my own personal favorite, probably because I spent hours using standard bricks and hosed form farm sets to create farms and stables as a kid.
The stables set takes a fast 2-3 hours to put together but possibly longer. As with the other sets you can choose to then change things to your liking and make different buildings as there are enough pieces to do this..
The set comes with two jumps for your horses and many pieces you would expect in a stables like hay. There is even a swing.
