LEGO Friends.. A building block for friendship!
LEGO are no longer just for boys. We are loving the new girlish LEGO Friends sets and extension kits. Plus, the friendship concept behind it!
Ask anyone around you to describe LEGO, and at least one would say it’s a gender-specific toy. Some girls might grow up playing LEGO blocks but many would agree those LEGO sets were designed with boys in mind.
Yonks years ago when I was little, I remember just watching my brother putting together LEGO blocks, but I wasn’t interested to join in. Didn’t find the idea of building with basic colour-schemed blocks enticing. Until recently.
LEGO kits can’t get anymore girlish than the LEGO Friends range!

The pinks and violets are enough to make any little girl want to rip open the box. My little one did exactly that! And once she started, we had to pry them off her fingers at dinner time.
She also loved her new limited-edition LEGO Friends friendship diary. Diaries are fantastic for kids to pour their feelings and thoughts into, and it’s absolutely great for when she starts primary 1 in January. I had a look at the diary and quite amazed at the activities it contains– stickers, artwork and interactive games. I want one too!
Before bed, she picked up where she left off, and this time invited her brother along. See, you usually wouldn’t be able to get him to play with girlish toys. But ’cause there’s still a boyish element to it, he looked past the pinks and violets.
It’s lovely to see LEGO promoting interaction between friends and family. It gave me another reason to put off doing the dishes and spend a bit more bonding time with the kids. Even got daddy involved!
