The LEGO Friends series will be replenished with brand new sets
Fans of the popular series of construction sets for girls have recently noticed that the brand “Girlfriends” increasingly began to go under the name “Friends”. At first, this was explained by the inclusion of male characters in the prefabricated toys. Now it turned out that the Danish manufacturer “Lego” decided to carry out a radical reboot of the project.
This decision is quite understandable, because 5 girlfriends, who for almost 10 years were the main characters of “brick” stories, grew up with their admirers. And this means that the time has come to give way to the new rising generation.
So, just the other day, LEGO made an official presentation of the changes to the LEGO Friends themed world that will take place in January 2023. A new line logo has been introduced, as well as 5 starter kits featuring brand new residents of Heartlake City.
Central to innovation LEGO Friends 2023 years will take 8 mini-dolls. Interestingly, some of the minifigures are presented as children of former characters.
Each minifigure, of course, has a name:
- A lion,
Thus, sets from a purely “girlish theme” are transformed into a general direction with fascinating stories from the lives of girls and boys.
“At the LEGO Group, we understand that kids want the characters they encounter to be more like the different personalities they meet in real life,” says Tracey Chiarella, Head of LEGO Friends Products at The LEGO Group. “We’re constantly improving our products to reflect today’s society, which is why we’re proud to introduce an all-new generation of LEGO Friends. We want kids to see the new LEGO Friends Universe as a physical product, as a reflection of their own friendships, and to see authenticity in the characters.
The premiere appearance of new characters on the stage is expected already in the first five designers, which will arrive on store shelves by January 1, 2023. So parents do not have to rack their brains over what to give their child for the New Year. Because one of the following sets can be a pleasant surprise for both girls and boys:
- 41724 LEGO Paisley House – 185 pieces and 3 mini-dolls. Price: 44.99 euros;
- 41727 LEGO Dog Rescue Center – 617 pieces and 3 minifigures. Price: 59.99 euros;
