The second in mine and my daughter Rebecca’s series of Lego Friends reviews….
Butterfly Beauty Shop – set 3187
The Butterfly Beauty Shop has 221 pieces, it’s manual has about 50 steps. It took my six year old and I just about an hour to put the whole thing together. It wasn’t all that complex, it just had a lot of steps.
Like most kits this one was divided into two separate pouches ostensibly for convenience. Which with a child Rebecca’s age is almost pointless. See this set came with two figures. One is in pouch #1 and the other in pouch #2! C’mon people you really didn’t know the younger end of your target group would be locked onto getting to that other figure? Regardless this was a fun set to build, Rebecca enjoyed herself but still needed my help at some points.
It has some really nice details, a sticker sheet that has mirrors, artwork for the shop, and the cash register. As well as stickers it has a bunch of little lipsticks, about a million hair things that will work with any of the figures from these sets, there’s also a hair dresser chair that swivels! Needless to say Rebecca couldn’t walk away from this set when we had finished the build. She just kept rearranging the stuff around the shop, trying to decide who should get there hair done first.
It ties in perfectly with the other Lego Friends sets (of course) but I’m noticing that the larger sets can stand alone. If this was the only one she had I really think she’d still enjoy it.
Well by now you’ve probably noticed the lack of photos. That’s because I used my Flip Video camera this time, here’s the video…
