LEGO continues to be good to us and released more of the 2013 LEGO sets early! This time two of the largest 2013 LEGO Friends sets; the #41008 LEGO Friend Hearlake City Pool, and the #41007 LEGO Friends Heartlake Pet Salon. Both wonderful gifts for Christmas, and an excellent way to get unique LEGO parts in lovely colors. 😛

Also, don’t forget that right now you will also get a free LEGO Friends Mia’s Skateboard polybag when you make any LEGO Friends purchase plus free shipping on orders above $99 until the 18th of December!

#41007 LEGO Friends Heartlake Pet SalonPamper every pet at the Heartlake Pet Salon! Celebrate the grand opening of the Heartlake Pet Salon! Everyone’s excited to check it out! Help Emma to shampoo her friend Joanna’s pretty white poodle in the bubble bath, then trim and clip her on the rotating grooming table. Use the blow dryer and brushes to make her perfect! While Joanna is waiting for her puppy to be groomed, help her to shop for new pet food and lots of accessories in the salon’s shop. Then fill up the water dish at the tap for the poodle to drink.

And here are the accessories included with the LEGO Friends Pet Salon, along with the two mini-dolls. Please note Emma’s lovely new shirt, and Joanna is completely unique to this set with a new hair-mould – which is also compatible with regular LEGO minifigures. 🙂

#41008 LEGO Friends Heartlake City Pool – The summer fun never ends at the Heartlake City Pool!  The Heartlake City Pool is the hottest spot to spend a long summer day in the sun. Put on your swim shorts in the double-door changing room and rinse off in the shower before you head to the big blue pool to hang out with Andrea and her friend Isabella. Climb the ladder up to the spiral pink water slide or diving board to make a splash! Play basketball in the pool or go grab an ice cream cone at the snack bar with a cool umbrella table and chairs. Then wind down on the lounge chairs or soak in the bubbly hot tub. Lots of realistic accessories include: shady palm tree leaves, an ice cream cone, money, a cash register and drinks. End a perfect day at Heartlake City Pool by splashing around under the waterfall. Includes Andrea and Isabella mini-doll figures. Price: $39.99 – SEE MORE DETAILS & BUY HERE

Below are some of the accessories you will get with the LEGO Friends Pool, as well as some of the cute details. Both Andrea and Isabella are really sweet and their dresses are so cute! Isabella is unique to this set.

I’m not sure when the other, smaller 2013 LEGO Friends sets will be added to LEGO’s website, but I would suggest to keep an eye out for them. LEGO may add those early as well. Here is the link to the LEGO Friends page: LEGO Friends at the Online LEGO Shop

LEGO Friends have been hugely successful with girls, many of them even taking up the LEGO hobby when previously had shown no interest. LEGO got heavy criticism that the sets are promoting too much “girly” activities, although LEGO made an endeavor from the beginning to add sets that focus on science, hobbies and crafts. (And what is exactly wrong with being a girly girl?) In the 2013 LEGO Friends sets we will get even more variety with Emma practicing karate, Mia magic tricks, and Stephanie playing soccer. You can check out all the 2013 LEGO Friends sets here: 2013 LEGO Sets: LEGO Friends – More Coming! And see the currently available LEGO Friends sets here: LEGO Friends at the Online LEGO Shop

What do you think of the new LEGO Friends sets? I know a lot of adults get these sets just for the accessories and the lovely colors. How do you like them? What else would you wish Friends would do? Share your thoughts in the comment section below! 😉

    admin: has anyone ever come on here and started cursing? besides KIND BOO XDDX >:(

  • NinjaNut December 7, 2012, 7:35 AM

    I myself don’t care about friends but it isn’t as bad as some themes like spongebob. By the way Admin do yo have any info about 2013 ninjago sets?

    • yeah sponge bob sucks! its the worst show ever to! 🙄

    • gid617 December 7, 2012, 10:01 AM

      As in when they’ll show up? I don’t think we know yet, but my guess is somewhere before the 15th. It wouldn’t make much sense for LEGO to leave such a well selling theme until January when it will have to compete with Chima (which I’m sure will sell well!)

      • admin December 7, 2012, 7:00 PM

        I really hope that’s true! I don’t see why LEGO would hold off the last wave of Ninjago sets until January! It just doesn’t make sense – as you said. On the other hand there is no sign of the sets anywhere. And TRU usually release LEGO sets at least 2 weeks before LEGO does. That doesn’t sound good. 😕

        • gid617 December 7, 2012, 7:38 PM

          I don’t pay attention to what TRU does, but have they released the TMNT yet (not that it really makes any difference, since LEGO isn’t selling them yet anyways). But were they selling Galaxy Squad early?

          • admin December 7, 2012, 9:09 PM

            Gen, both TRU and LEGO are selling Galaxy Squad, but I haven’t seen any TMNT sets at my local TRU. I don’t think they are out yet.

            • gid617 December 8, 2012, 5:19 AM

              Yeah, especially since LEGO droped their released date to the 24th… though I’m not sure why they would do that…
              The January Ninjago release is all sold out, along with most of the spinners and booster packs (not Bytar’s or Lizaru’s), wonder if that would make any difference? I had been hoping the Fire Temple would last long enough for me to get it though… 😕

    • admin December 7, 2012, 6:57 PM

      Yeah, SpongeBob is the absolute worst LEGO theme I have seen. But it is not LEGO’s fault. The cartoon itself is so lame it is painful to watch. But the LEGO SpongeBob sets have been around for 6 years – it obviously have some fans. Although it is beyond me why LEGO is cointinuing such a lame theme and discontinue Ninjago. I’m pretty sure Ninjago have more fans than SpongeBob! At least I hope so! 😕

  • gid617 December 7, 2012, 10:02 AM

    Hadn’t notice the ice cream cone before! Looks nice (though I like using unicorn horns for ice cream too… 🙄 )
    The only friends sets I’m really interested in would be the small ones with just animals, and maybe the treehouse (which was pretty neat). Not much else!

    • admin December 7, 2012, 7:00 PM

      Yeah, the ice-cream cone is a must! 🙄

    My five year old loves the LEGO friends line. She has about 7 or 8 of them and loves building/playing with them (where she was previously mildly interested in her older brother LEGO sets). She recently asked for the Summer Riding Camp (#3185) for Christmas. Luckily LEGO.com just go them back in stock on Wednesday because they were showing as out of stock with estimated ship date of 12/22; and the exclusive distributor (TRU) is still out of stock. The prices that are being listed on eBay and secondary retailers on Amazon are outrageous for it.

    I hope that LEGO plans on introducing more characters to the line. They don’t necessarily need to be part of the main five friends that are used in all of their marketing material. But, it would just be nice to see some supporting characters. It is going to get old in a few years (after picking up more sets) and having many versions of the same five girls.

    Lastly, the Friends advent calendar was disappointing. I know that it was limited production (apparently because LEGO wasn’t happy with it). Regardless, the contents of the set wasn’t impressive. Plus, it only had two minifigs. I didn’t bother picking it up (even if pricing was reasonable on secondary market), so my daughter has the City advent calender (son got the Star Wars versions). I’m happy that they had two female characters in the City set.

  • yeah one of them needs a boyfriend:P

    hey admin how do you think of this? i am going to try and start makng a huge lego castle land! i will have kingdoms,knights kingdom,castle (2007) (2009) and lastly, the hobbit! 😀 awesome right?! 😀 and i will need lots of base plates.:P

    • admin December 8, 2012, 9:07 AM

      That is a fantastic idea!LEGO castle and LEGO LOTR/Hobbit is perfectly compatible! It would be kind of like the now retired LEGO Fantasy Castle theme with humans, elves, dwarves, dragons, etc. That was my favorite LEGO theme, ever! 😀

  • Brickingdomboy December 7, 2012, 10:13 PM

    Ahhhhhh! My eyes ! These putrid sets are burning my eyes!
    How could these ever become sets. YUCK!
