Rebecca and Caitlyn have been reviewing new LEGO sets this week. I love those afternoons when all the kids are happy and engaged in building LEGO and I can get on with house work, paid work or maybe even a rest in peace- bliss.
Rebecca reviewed the Lego Friends- Pop Star Dressing Room set (41104). It came with two LEGO Friend's Characters, Livi, the pop star and Emma, her stylist. It also comes with Cookie, Livi's Dalmation dog.
About the Set:
Get glammed up in the foldout Pop Star Dressing Room! Livi the pop star has a big show tonight and Emma is her stylist. Help Emma choose an amazing outfit for Livi to wear on stage, then sit Livi down at the vanity desk to have her hair done. Which style and accessories will you choose tonight? Then it’s time to relax before the performance. Fold the dressing room back to create a special doggy pampering area for Livi’s Dalmatian, Cookie. Put him in his doggy bed with a bone while Livi sits on the sofa to read some fan mail. The show is about to start, so put the finishing touches to Livi’s makeover, take a glamorous fabric skirt from the hangers and dress Livi with it. Now, she really looks like a superstar! Includes Livi the pop star and Emma mini-doll figures, plus Cookie the Dalmatian.
Building the LEGO
The set comes with clear instructions and numbered bags, Rebecca enjoyed making the set and put it together very quickly.
We were both very impressed with the built LEGO and all of the features. The dressing room folds open to display the different areas. So, for a small set, it offers a lot of different playscapes.
The Dressing Room features an opening door, vanity desk with mirror and swivel chair.
After having her make up done in the swivel chair, Livi can rest on the sofa and enjoy water and fruit from the opening mini-fridge (these sets are so detailed).
There is a clothing rail with hangers and tilting full-length mirror. I love how all the mirrors are so clear. In all my old kids toys the safety mirrors were quite blurry, so it's good to see how they have improved. There are clothes and wigs for Livi to choose from too.
A star on the pop stars door, of course!
Cookies, gets his own little doggie area with a basket and his bones.
Fans can post mail to Livi.
She can check her fan mail box from inside her dressing room.
She picks up her fan mail and maybe reads it on the sofa with a drink.
There are lots of little accessories too, including electric blue and pink wigs, hair accessories, three fabric skirts, beauty product containers, flowers, fan mail, fruit, bottle, magazine and a bone for Cookie.
Rebecca loves this set. She loves singing and being in shows where the girls have been in their shared, slightly less glamorous dressing rooms. There is also a Pop Star Show Stage set available for £34.99 that would create the whole concert experience.
This dressing room set is £24.99, so a good price for such a good quality, feature filled LEGO toy. The only thing that could improve LEGO friends sets for me is if it came with it's own plastic storage box.
This has kept the girls amused and will be made and played with again and again.
