Join the LEGO Friends and be part of Heartlake City

My little boy, Raix is a LEGO lover. His fondness to it is just overwhelming. As young as 3 years old, he can build small lego sets by following the manual. Honestly, he is even better than me! Haha. When he knew that we got an invitation to a LEGO Friends event he got so excited! ūüôā

The LEGO Friends event was held last June 30 at the Ayala Malls the 30th. The event was also a launch of the weekend LEGO Friends Weekend Activity.

LEGO Friends

LEGO Friends is a product range of the Lego construction toy designed primarily for girls. Introduced in 2012, the theme introduced the “mini-doll” figures, which are about the same size as the traditional minifigures but are more detailed and realistic. The sets include pieces in pink and purple color schemes and depict scenes from suburban life set in the fictional town of Heartlake City. In the initial wave of sets, the larger sets include bricks that can build a veterinary clinic, a malt-style caf√©, a beauty salon and a suburban house; smaller sets included a “cool convertible,” a design studio, an inventor’s workshop and a swimming pool.

He had an awesome time building this. Imagine building something with just 60 blocks! It was like show-and-tell, kids are asked what they built. I was so proud of Raix because he didn’t get shy when he was asked about his entry. ūüôā

We were not able to win Major Prizes from the two games but we got lucky and was picked during the raffle! Yey!!!
