LEGO Friends has been out now for a couple of years, and it has established itself as one of the most popular LEGO themes. And not just with little girls but adult LEGO fans as well. LEGO Friends introduced a lot of pretty new colors, unique accessories, and the somewhat controversial but still very cute mini-dolls. 🙂
If you like to build your own custom LEGO models the new colors and accessories provide a lot of possibilities, and in fact many LEGO fans use them in their own creations. However there is also a new breed of LEGO fans emerging; these creative people are not just incorporating LEGO Friends elements into their own creations, but fully focus on LEGO Friends and greatly expanding on the theme. They are wholly embracing what LEGO Friends has to offer and effectively bringing the line into the big boys/big girls club. Today I will show you the creations of two such members of the LEGO community.
➡ LEGO FRIENDS RAINBOW HOLIDAY CENTER: This lovely LEGO diorama was built by Anne Mette Vestergård from Denmark. It was built as an exhibit for Friends Days at the LEGOLAND Park in Billund, Denmark. She tried to use as many LEGO colors as possible, which you can especially see at the arrangement of the houses. She used over 60 different LEGO colors!
What is interesting to see is not just the rainbow of colors, but also how well the LEGO Friends characters and their favorite activities (picnics, water-sports, horseback riding, etc.) all fit in a fully developed LEGO diorama. Here I share a few pictures with you, and you can see a lot more at Anne’s flickr gallery here: LEGO FRIENDS RAINBOW HOLIDAY CENTER
➡ LEGO FRIENDS MODULAR STREET: This charming street-scene is built in the style of the LEGO Modular Buildings, but with the vibrant colors and mini-dolls of LEGO Friends. It was created by Kristel from Australia, who built the street for her daughter.
Kristel has been experimenting with and reviewing LEGO Friends sets from the time they were first released. In fact, she also provides step-by-step building instructions for all of the LEGO Friends Modular Buildings as well as other LEGO Modular Houses at ModularsByKristel.com. And you can also visit Kristel’s flickr gallery for more pictures of both the exterior and the interior of the houses as well as other lovely LEGO Friends creations: LEGO FRIENDS MODULAR STREET & MORE
➡ MORE LEGO FRIENDS CREATIONS: There are many more LEGO Friends creations that fans of the theme have been building. As I mentioned, some people build LEGO Friends part-time and some have embraced the theme as their full-time hobby. In fact I know several adult LEGO fans who declare the theme as their most favorite, and I expect that there will be a lot more, as a whole new generation grows up with LEGO Friends as their favorite childhood pastime.

If you are interested to explore LEGO Friends, there is a huge range of sets available. The most recently introduced sub-theme is the LEGO Friends Jungle sets, with lots of cute animals, tree-houses and forest scenes. You can check them out all at the LEGO Friends section of the Online LEGO Shop.
So what do you think? How do you like the LEGO Friends theme? Have you considered building fully in this style? Or have you incorporated LEGO Friends colors, accessories and characters in your other LEGO creations? Feel free to share and discuss in the comment section below! 😉
