When the Lego Friends series of Lego originally was released, I was lucky enough to see some of the first kits through a research panel on an online forum - the outcome was that as with all Lego kits they were fantastic kits, however why the pastel colours? Lego is unisex and does not need to be sugary pink and purple to attract girls to play with it. The debate has continued and I think that Lego have listened to the consumers.
This Lego Friends kit is, dare I say it, more gothic! Blacks, pinks, blues and yellows make up the kit and it is a much nicer colour palette. The actual model will appeal to girls, but I think that it will also appeal to boys too. Lego have released a number of Pop Star Lego Friends Kits and so this can be added to with other kits. This kit is one of the more expensive kits from this range but there is quite a bit for children to construct and will keep them amused for a number of hours.
There are some tricky bits in the construction of this kit, but as with all Lego instruction booklets, there are fantastic step by step instructions which children age 8+ will be able to follow with little or no help from others.
This would be a great gift to give to children aged 8+ that they will love to build and love to play with for many hours.
I received this product through the Amazon Vine Programme in return for an honest review.
