This review is from: LEGO Friends 3315: Olivia's House (Toy)
I can't say I'm a big fan of the Lego Friends range - it's a shame they had to make it so girlie and seem to want to pigeon hole girls - but all that said this build has totally won me over and this set was a huge hit with my 6 year old daughter, it's just fantastic!
The house comes in room modules that fit together, and which can be arranged in different configurations. There's a bag for each room so the build can be done over time, number 1-7, starting with the living room and finishing with the garden. It's not the biggest of houses once made, to give you an idea of size, by my measurements each room is about 13cm long by 8cm high and 6.5cm deep. Given the compactness of the rooms there's an incredible amount of detail and some very interesting pieces. I couldn't fail to but to be won over by my daughter's delight in constructing the tiny swivelling LCD screen in the living room, the oven complete with tray in the kitchen and the shower unit with opening doors. There's a bbq in the garden with a lid that opens and closes and even a swing and a parasol on the roof garden. There's just so much detail and play value with this set once made, especially as you get three mini-figures (including a male Lego friend with strange stubble) and a cute cat to play with and a number of accessories like a lawnmower and a little mixer, bowl and cupcakes.
Yes this set is unashamedly pink, but it's great on promoting imaginative play with any other sets that you might, Lego friends or not. My daughter is happy enough to play with her Lego city firetruck with this, just as much as with her other Lego sets. We have LEGO Friends 3065: Olivia's Tree House too, which is a nice add on but not as good value as the house as it's quite small.
My daughter was able to build this set with minimal help and has played with it a lot once built. I was pleasantly surprised by this house which was just great fun to make and which looks great when constructed - highly recommended.
