Lego 41107 – Pop Star Limousine

The Pop Star Limousine is a new Friends set that, together with the Heartlake Airport, was only unveiled in the past days. The piece count is not know yet, but I would say that it will have something around the three hundred pieces, which will be responsible for the awesome limousine, two mini-dolls ( Livi and Olivia), a red carpet and a small stage with two seats for the pop stars.

First of all, let me tell you that I love this convertible limousine. It looks rather pretty – the white mixed with a few purple and golden details gives it a really nice look – and the fact that all the inside elements are available surely increases it playability.

Lego 41100 – Heartlake Private Jet

The Heartlake Private Jet is a new friends’ set that will hit stores in the beginning of June. The set has only two hundred and thirty pieces and I think that is incredible how a jet can be built with such a small quantity o bricks.

It will certainly increase Continue reading

The slider is also Continue reading

Lego 41010 – Olivia’s Beach Buggy

Well, only for the fact that it recreates a beach environment, for me it’s more than enough to enjoy this little set. Obviously the Beach Buggy brings more than that! Besides the Buggy, driven by Olivia, the set has also a little beach stand where the sunbathers can refresh them self’s with ice creams, juice and even plenty of different fruit, and best of all a beach coconut tree.

With exactly ninety five pieces, this friends’ set is definitely a good addition to the theme, and also to the aquatic part of a city, being a great complement for the Marina, or even to the new Dolphin Cruiser, for instance.
