A Fun and Big LEGO Friends Set with a Swimming Pool Theme!
on February 11, 2013
Our 5 year old daughter loves Lego Friends. She first saw them at a friends house and was instantly obsessed with them. We purchased a set for Christmas and it was a big hit. We decided to add this set to expand her collection and she loves it.
The LEGO Friends Heartlake City Pool Play Set comes with a big 423 pieces. It includes the Andrea and Isabella characters. It comes with everything you could imagine you would need at the pool. It has a winding water slide, a hottub, a changing room, and a bar for refreshments. It also comes with plenty of accessories for the pool including tables and beach chairs for lounging and fun pool games like a basketball net. It is a really nice and big set with a lot of pieces to let your child's imagination run wild. The instructions are very detailed and easy to follow for a 5 year old. The recommended age is 6-12, but a 5 year old will only need minimal help with it.
One point of caution. I have found that the average per piece price of the LEGO Friends sets are around 9-10 cents per piece for the bigger sets with two characters. That is the going rate from WalMart/Target or when Amazon is the seller. Some secondary Amazon retailers sell the Friends sets for much more. This set in particular was an amazing value with a $35 price from Amazon which is an 8 cent per piece price. One of the cheapest per piece LEGO Friends sets I've seen so far. Make sure to shop around.
Long story short, this is a great addition to your LEGO Friends collection. Highly Recommended!
