If you have gotten any of the LEGO Friends or LEGO Disney Princess sets, you have likely noticed that the hair-pieces on the mini-dolls are made of a different kind of material than the hair-pieces of regular LEGO minifigures. These more soft and rubbery hair-pieces are compatible with regular LEGO minifigures (and vice-versa; meaning you can use regular minifigure hair-pieces on LEGO Friends and LEGO Disney Princess mini-dolls), and LEGO would like to know what you think of them. 🙂
Through the LEGO Ambassador Forum we have been asked to poll our communities and get feedback on how LEGO fans like the LEGO Friends and LEGO Disney Princess hair-pieces. Here is the original announcement: “We would like your LEGO User Group’s feedback on the soft hair elements used in the LEGO Friends theme and the LEGO Disney Princess sets. Feedback can range from touch and feel to usability and play-value. All is valid, we want the negative and positive feedback. The purpose of this poll is to supply the LEGO quality department with valuable insights on the soft hair elements from high affinity consumers (that’s YOU, our experts).”
So this is your chance to give LEGO feedback on the LEGO Friends and LEGO Disney Princess hair-pieces. Do you like them? If you do, why? And if you don’t like them, why not? Or it doesn’t really matter to you and you like both the hard ABS plastic and the soft rubber hair pieces equally? Also, if you have children, how do they like the hair-pieces?
The more detailed answer you give, the more helpful your feedback will be to LEGO. So please list positives and negatives about the hair-pieces in the comment section below. Also, please share this poll with your friends (you can use the social-media buttons below this article for easy sharing). Unfortunately we got a very short deadline for this poll and we only have until tomorrow afternoon to gather all the responses, but hopefully we can collect some valuable and insightful feedback before the cutoff time.
To start the process, I will go first. I like the LEGO Friends and LEGO Disney Princess hair-pieces for the amazing variety of hair-styles, and I also like that they can be decorated with bows, flowers and other accessories. And I like the smoother, more natural look of the rubber – this is especially true for the larger hair-pieces where shiny ABS looks more artificial. To date I have not experienced any quality issues with any of the rubbery hair-pieces. Some things I don’t like is that the rubbery pieces get dirty easier (especially the light yellow ones) and they are not as easy to clean as ABS plastic. Also, while most of the hair-pieces fit really well on regular LEGO minifigs, some of them don’t look good, or don’t even fit properly – there should be better consistency in this regard. All in all I like the new pieces, and I especially appreciate the variety. We never had so many female hair-pieces before!
Now it’s your turn! How do you like the LEGO Friends and LEGO Disney Princess hair-pieces! Tell LEGO what you think about the hair-styles of their girls in the comment section below! 😉
