In 2012, LEGO created a new line of toys that are designed for girls ages five and above. The theme is what we know today as the LEGO Friends product line. It introduced mini-doll figures of five main characters including Emma, Andreas, Olivia, Stephanie, and Mia. Each mini-doll is about the same size as the typical LEGO minifigure, but has more details and looks more realistic. So whether your kids like playing with characters they can relate to or simply love building age-appropriate LEGO sets, the idea is that there is a LEGO Friends set they can get their hands on.
The team at Just Bricks have put together the top 10 LEGO Friends sets available in 2019:
