2021 LEGO Friends Sets Review
Gather up your LEGO gal pals for fun at Andrea’s Family House, the Heartlake City Movie Theater, or the Heartlake City Organic Cafe. These three new LEGO Friends construction sets offer big ways for kids to build and play.
The Heartlake City Movie Theater, model number 41448, includes 451 pieces for building a movie theater, complete with a red carpet movie premiere where the Andrea minidoll asks actress Amelia for her autograph. Don’t forget to buy a movie ticket from the Julian minidoll. But that’s just on the outside. This playset actually opens up to reveal a movie screen, seating for five, and a projector. Kids can pretend that their LEGO Friends are watching a movie, or they can display a smartphone for real-world movie screenings. This movie theater has it all, including a gender-neutral bathroom and a snack bar with food accessories of slushie cups and popcorn boxes.
Andrea’s Family House, model number 41449, is a larger construction set with 802 pieces. You build Andrea’s two-story house, complete with solar panels on the roof and an outdoor heart-shaped pool. Open up the front door to Number 28 and check out the kitchen and dining room area. The table seats five! Upstairs there’s a living room, bathroom, and Andrea’s bedroom with bunk beds. Plus, there’s a balcony that overlooks the garden trellis. Slide open the garage door to reveal a keyboard and drums. It’s the perfect space for Andrea’s band practice – and for doing laundry in the washing machine. The set includes minidolls of Andrea’s family: Andrea, Martin, Donna, and Liz. You also get a minidoll of Stephanie and a bird figure. For easier access to the house’s interior, lift off the top floors.
The smaller Heartlake City Organic Cafe, model number 41444, includes 314 pieces for building a cafe that sells smoothies and sandwiches. It comes with Mia, Marcel, and Ava minidoll figures. Kids can pretend to grow ingredients in the cafe’s garden and then prepare them in the toy kitchen. There’s also a recycling station and a juice bike for delivering fresh goodies.
Should I get it?
Each of these construction sets will be so much fun for LEGO Friends fans. These are just two new locations to add to a LEGO Friends collection, and kids will have fun playing out all sorts of imaginative stories and adventures for the characters. They don’t take that long to build, and the instructions are easy to follow.
