Lego Friends City Park Cafe
Finally Lego have decided to really target the girls market with the new Lego Friends range and I have to say that Lego have done a fantastic job!
So starting off we are going to take a look at the new Lego Friends City Park Cafe set or Lego 3061 as it’s also known.
Lego have really done a lot of research into the girls market and what girls want from the Lego experience and from what we’ve seen they are got this spot on! The box art and the colours are really catchy and really do capture the eye amongst all the other girls toys out there.
The Lego Friends City Park Cafe really is a great set, which comes with 222 pieces and 2 mini doll figures which as you have noticed are different from the standard lego minifigures and more like the Character Building figures with greater detail in the body and head sculpts.
What I love about these sets and espcially the Lego Friends City Park Cafe set is the amount of detail that Lego have included and they have given the same weight as they do the City or Star Wars sets for example to the new Lego Friends ranges.
So delving into the box we have 3 numbered bags, a sticker sheet and the instruction manual which features easy to read instructions to build the city park cafe.
So let’s first take a look at the new lego figures, as i’ve already mentioned they look alot like the new Character building minifigures and the research that Lego completed stated that girls didn’t like the normal Lego minifigures as much. Just like the original minifigures, the new versions are broken into head, body and legs, the hands are the same size as the normal lego minifigures so can hold the same things, this lego friends set comes with 2 Lego minifigures which consist of Andrea and Marie.
Moving onto the actual set itself there are some fantastic accessories which have never been seen before including a hand mixer and a range of other kitchen accessories in yellow.
The actual build of the cafe is really straightforward and you get some really cool new lego parts like the massive clear windows, there really is so much playability to this set which is fantastic to see. I really love this set and see this being a real hit this year with girls of all ages, the design is fun and the construction is really detailed which was always something missing from previous attempts at the girls Lego market. With so much detail and loads of cool accessories to play with the Lego Friends City Park Cafe is a fantastic addition.
