LEGO has been making its famous building blocks since 1949. They have produced over 600 billion LEGO pieces in the decades that followed. Modern sets often have pieces to build specific toys or models. Included instructions let the builder know how to construct these builds one brick at a time. Builders can also let their imaginations run wild and use LEGO bricks to make creations of their own. This leads to endless play possibilities. All LEGO bricks and unique pieces are compatible with those from other sets too.
LEGO has always been a brand that can be enjoyed by girls or boys of all ages. Some sets, however, have been created with girls mind. That’s not to say that they’re exclusively for girls, but they are designed to appeal to that market. These sets fall under different subset names such as LEGO Friends and LEGO Juniors. LEGO Friends sets feature unique figures that are different from the standard LEGO minifigure. Disney sets showcase Disney Princesses and scenes from their animated movies. LEGO DC Super Hero Girls feature female super heroes from the DC Comics Universe. These Disney and DC sets feature the unique figure types found in the Friends sets.
One important thing to note is that every LEGO set has an identification number. This makes finding and collecting sets a bit easier, since LEGO has produced so many of them. Our first set is Mia’s Tree House set # 41335. This set comes with a total of 351 pieces. It also includes two figures, a girl named Mia and a boy named Daniel. A couple of small outdoor critters are thrown in for good measure. LEGO has named them Mimi the Bunny and Cinnamon the Bird. Also included is a skateboard for Mia and Daniel to enjoy riding around on.
Once the build is completed, you will end up with a fun tree-house playset. There’s a folding ladder for the figures to enter and exit the tree house from. A climbing net gives the characters yet another option for getting in and out of the place. Located up top is a lookout spot for the figures or animals. There’s even a zip line for the characters to use. This is a great little set with a number of play possibilities. When completed, the tree house will measure just over 6 inches tall. It’s approximately 6-inches wide and 6-inches deep as well. This set was designed for use by children ages 6 to12.
LEGO Juniors sets were created with the younger builder in mind. They are intended for kids ages 4 to 7. They use standard and unique LEGO pieces that are compatible with bricks from all other set types. Most Juniors sets use the standard-style minifigure as well. The main difference is that the builds were designed to be easier to construct for those younger fans. The Princess Play Castle is numbered as set 10668. It comes with a total of 150 pieces and instructions. These are housed in a convenient and sturdy LEGO container. This container is made of pink plastic and designed to look like a LEGO brick.
The entire package for this set is about 5-inches high, 7-inches wide and 7-inches deep. The main build here is a castle that will measure around 5-inches high and 5-inches deep once constructed. It features a ladder, a working drawbridge and a slide for figures to ride down on. There’s a seesaw in the rear area of the building. The castle is made up of pastel pink and purple colors. The top tower is decorated with several flags. You get one standard princess minifigure with the set. Also included is a small pet cat figure.
Even subsets like LEGO Friends often have their own subsets in the world of LEGO. Such is the case with this set which is numbered 41130. LEGO fans can collect a number of amusement-park themed sets in the Friends line to construct a sprawling park scene for play or display. This particular set is massive and contains a whopping 1,124 pieces. Four mini-doll figures named Emma, Andrea, Matthew and Naya are included in the set. Each figure comes dressed in summer clothes and ready to have some fun at the park. This set was created for use by children between the ages of 8 and 12 years old.
The roller coaster itself measures about 6-inches long and stands about 1-inch high. Figures can be securely seated in any one of the four cars. The track is huge and comes in at over 27-inches in length. There is also a giant Ferris wheel and a drop tower included in this set. Each of these constructs stands at around 1-foot tall. The Ferris wheel has seats for the figures and can freely rotate for some accurate play. The theme-park atmosphere is further enhanced by a number of small constructs such as food carts, game booths, garbage receptacles and outdoor dining tables.
If you’re looking for LEGO sets for girls who love marine animals, then set # 41380 is for you. This is the Lego Friends: Lighthouse Rescue Center. This LEGO building kit contains a total of 602 pieces. It is designed to be used by children of ages 6 years old and up. The main build in this set is an 11-inch tall lighthouse.
