Our daughter loves LEGO Friends. She first saw them at a friends house and was instantly obsessed with them. We purchased the "Olivia's Tree House" Set for her for Christmas and it was a big hit. Since then, we have purchased several additional sets for her collection.

The LEGO Friends Dolphin Cruiser Play Set comes with a big 612 pieces. It includes two girl characters (Mia and Maya) and one boy character (Andrew). It comes with everything you could imagine for a boat trip. It has large yacht type boat that has a top that lifts off so you can play with your characters in the inside living areas (living room with an L-shaped couch, kitchen, bathroom and bedroom with two beds). The boat has several features like deck chairs, a water slide, a captains area on the top for driving the boat and a wave runner with a ski rope and skis for the characters to use. It also comes with lots of little accessories for drinks and snacks, music equipment, two dolphins and some fish to feed to them. It is a really nice and big set with a lot of playability and plenty of pieces to let your child's imagination run wild. The instructions are very detailed and easy to follow and the recommended age is 7-12 because it is such a large set, but a 6 year old will only need minimal help with it.

One point of caution, the MSRP on the LEGO web site for this set is $69.99. If a set isn't Retired, you shouldn't have to pay much more than the MSRP. That is the going rate from WalMart/Target/LEGO and usually when Amazon is the seller. Some secondary Amazon retailers sell the Friends sets for much more so be careful if the seller isn't Amazon, especially around the holidays when Amazon sometimes sells out. Make sure to shop around. We picked it up when the price dropped to $50.99 on Amazon. You can check the Amazon price history and set price drop alerts on camelcamelcamel dot com.

Long story short, this is a huge and fun set that will be a great addition to your LEGO Friends collection. It looks really impressive when it is built and it is designed really well to allow for a lot of pretend play. While this is one of the more expensive LEGO Friends sets, the 11 cent per piece price is right in-line with the average for other multi-character sets. Highly Recommended!

My girl loves the Lego friends. I got it for her a few weeks ago and she still plays with it. She is 6 years old and with her other toys she plays with them for a few days then puts it aside. With this toy she has been playing almost daily for three weeks and going. I also love that it stimulates her imagination.

Nice set for the kids. They enjoyed building it. Probably the most entertaining of the Friends Lego sets. It does dwarf some of the buildings though.

I'm 42 and I ordered this for ME! Adults love Lego too! It's so cool. Instructions were clear and easy.

Another great, well thought out Lego design. Lots of fun details in the cabin space of the cruiser. My daughter was thrilled that the top level of the cruiser easily lifts off so you can play in the cabin area.

item was exactly as shown. (actually it was missing a couple of small pieces-to no fault of the seller-but the customer service at Lego shipped those out to complete the cruiser)

I bought this at an exorbitant price ($130) right before Christmas because it was sold-out at retail everywhere. There's a reason it was sold out though - kids love it. I bought it for my 8 year old niece and it was her favorite gift this Christmas.

If your kid loves Legos and you do too, and you both have some time, a hot summer or a cold winter, the Dolphin Cruiser will keep you busy.

Definitely for older kids, and if you have little ones under seven, there is lots of small parts (612 pieces in all), so be careful.

My favorite part is my niece named the two dolphins Donnie and Marie, and I often find them outside in the pool. I taped over the blowholes to keep them from sinking to the bottom of the deep-end.

The boat is a little over a foot long, and it's tricked out; little blenders, slide, shower, snack bar and a cool jet ski.

Unfortunately, the boat doesn't float (Lego says this right on the box). I would give it 5 stars if it did.

Still very cool.

Enjoy!

Legos have certainly come a long way over the years. This set took my daughter and my husband an afternoon and evening to finish and the details just blew us away. From the drinks on deck to the iPad to the speakers on top. Its a great set and if you have a little girl into legos, this is worth the money.

Our 13 year old granddaughter put this on her Xmas list. When advised that it was for a younger age group, she said, " Teenagers like to play, too." And she spent a good part of Christmas day putting it together!
