What It Is
The Butterfly Beauty Shop is part of LEGO's new LEGO Friends line of construction sets geared toward girls. LEGO did extensive research over several years to develop this line. Construction play appeals to both boys and girls, but where LEGO's research really pays off is in the play that's built into these sets. Girls love to play scenarios that represent the real world around them, and that's part of every one of the 23 LEGO Friends sets. The Butterfly Beauty Shop does that through lots of great detail.
This 221-piece set lets girls build a beauty shop. It includes everything girls need for a day of pampering, including different minifigure hairstyles, hairbrushes, cosmetics, a rotating mirror, and accessories. The playset also comes with two minifigures (Emma and Sarah), which have been redesigned to be more lifelike, something girls said they wanted in LEGO's research.
Is It Fun?
LEGO Friends offers a great twist on construction play for girls with unique details and play patterns and a great set of characters that girls can bring to life through the construction and play. Combining all of the fun and stimulation of building with LEGO with a beautifully executed theme that will inspire all kinds of open-ended play, LEGO Friends opens up a whole new range of options and imaginative opportunities for girls who love LEGO.
Who It’s For
