41714: Andrea’s Theatre School Set Review

LEGO® Friends sets are often overlooked by the AFOL community. Friends sets often include an unusual mix of colours and of course, Mini-dolls, so I understand they lack the appeal of other themes.

41401: Stephanie’s Play Cube Review

LEGO® Friends isn’t a theme which makes up much of my LEGO collection. But every so often there is a set which catches my eye. As 2020 begins we are treated to a number of new play functions and elements, which is something I like to take a closer look at. One of those new elements is the collectible LEGO Friends Play Cube, a series of enclosed mini playsets. These use a new clam shell type box to house a small scene based on...
