Usual poor value Friends Lego.
on 17 July 2015
I find all the Friends sets to be less value for money than City although some sets do offer excellent play value. Star Wars and Disney sets include the licensing, so I'm not sure why the self licensed Friends sets are more £/brick...
We bought this set to add a tractor to our vehicle collection.
This set has a cool tractor, a nice tree, the fruit n veg stand has cool strawberries. The dog house and dog are a bit pointless but I really liked the veg patch although I have made mine much bigger. Took us about half an hour to build.
My just 3yr old loves Lego and has been playing with it properly for about 6 months. Prior to that she played with the vehicles and animals (always together with me - closely supervised!) but that was about it as she struggled to put bricks together by herself until lately. Still we decided when she was young to skip Duplo and just get Lego and I'm glad we did.
We have heaps of Lego and I like the Friends sets but not the Friends figures. I replaced the first few with regular lady figures and happily they fit everywhere except the narrow chairs, but we have so many now (30+) I relented and just told my daughter they are children, that's why they're smaller!
We have more than 25 sets from the Friend's range. The Friends Beach House is quite possibly my favourite Lego set ever, regardless of range. Fun build and excellent play value.
My daughter's favourite sets are Frozen (Obvs!), the Friends Beach House and Yacht, and the Juniors digger.
