*** Mia's Puppy House - Lego Friends 3934 ***
Lego has been a popular toy for both boys and girls for years. There have been recent additions to the brand with a Ninjago range for boys, and more recently, the Friends range for girls. My daughter has only very recently got into the whole Lego scene, following a trip to Legoland during the summer. My review discusses this set, that she has received as an early birthday present. Elysia spotted this brand new Lego range and was so delighted when her Granddad had said he would buy some of the sets for her birthday, that he relented and gave her them early; Naughty Granddad.
*** The Play Set ***
This set is Mia's Puppy (dog grooming) set, Lego number 3934; and was found on the end of the promotion aisle at Tesco's while we were out shopping. It cost £9.97, but shop around, as this is new, it might be on special offer at other stores.
This is one of the smaller sets, and though it can be used as a stand alone toy, it's much more fun to add to a collection. The age range as suggested by the box is 5 -12, and while I do think the lower end of the range is extremely suitable, I can't see many 12 year olds still wanting to play with this.
In the box, you receive 63 pieces which should be pieced together and a set of instructions. These are as usual from Lego, well laid out, and features easy to understand picture diagrams to follow. These give us simple step by step ideas of what to do, and are so easy a five year old would be able to follow them. Some of the pieces are minute and very fiddly, (the flowers which you first have to separate and then place on the end of the stems) and I doubt some five year olds would have the dexterity to be able to do this. They would certainly manage to fit the larger Lego shapes of the kennel and the grooming table together though.
Having so few pieces this is an extremely fast build, and my 8 year old managed to complete this in just minutes with absolutely no assistance from me.
I do like that the figure included in this set (Mia) is more human like, unlike in other Lego sets we own, where the figures are a little robotic. She is beautifully designed, and wears fashionable clothes, and looks quite pretty, although not remotely grown up like Barbie. Another point to mention, is that if you own more than one set (as we do), you can interchange their clothes and hair, so you can make your own designs; great for any budding fashionista.
*** My Thoughts ***
At £9.97 this is reasonable value for money. You are receiving a quality item which should last years - provided you don't vacuum all the tiny accessories, brushes, bows, and spray bottles etc up, which I can seriously see myself doing in the not too distant future.
This is a great set if you combine it with the other sets, and there are plenty to choose from. My daughter has owned this a week now and the novelty value still hasn't worn off. She's played with this more than all her Christmas toys put together, and therefore as it gets my daughter's full approval, I must give mine too. Five stars from us.
Thanks for reading my review, which may also be posted on other sites.
