Flickr user David Pickett (fallentomato) posted the below photo showing the differences between the male and female minidolls:
I haven’t opened up 3315 Olivia’s House yet so I haven’t discovered this on my own so big thanks go to fallentomato for the image. I can only assume that more male minidolls will be made in the future. But looking at 2013 sets, there aren’t any more so far and Peter can’t be the only male living in Heartlake City. Molds are expensive and I’m sure LEGO is going to want to recoup the cost of making Peter as much as possible.
There are two new sets from the 2013 assortment for sale on LEGO Shop@Home.
First up is 41007 Heartlake Pet Salon:
This set costs $29.99 and comes with 242 pieces. It includes new designs for Emma and a new Friend minidoll character, Joanna.
The other new set is 41008 Heartlake City Pool:
The City Pool set costs $39.99 and like the Pet Salon set, it introduces a new character: Isabella! It also comes with a new version of Andrea. You get 423 pieces that make up a pool, hot tub, food stand, and table and chairs.
Okay, so I started this blog a little late, so I’m going to try and catch up with 3316 Friends Advent Calendar. I’m going to review each days model in a separate post, but this post will have the first seven days in one. So, without further ado, let’s begin!
LEGO Shop@Home has a page on their website called “Retiring Soon” where they list sets that will be discontinued. One Friends set is on that page and it’s 3937 Olivia’s Speedboat. It’s priced at $9.99 and contains 65 pieces. If you haven’t picked it up yet, this should be a good enough reason to do it now.
