LEGO Friends: Stephanie’s Pizzeria (Toy Review)

Hey all! Today I’ve got another toy review for you because I do LOVE toys. And it’s the LEGO Friends: Stephanie’s Pizzeria set. I saw it at the toy store and I knew I had to have it. The reason? It made me nostalgic. When I was little, they didn’t have LEGO Friends yet, but the LEGO group did have a similar line (aka also targeted to little girls) back in the 90’s – early 2000’s called LEGO Belville. I’d see these a lot, and I badly did want one; however, they were expensive and money was tight. The LEGO group ended their Belville line in 2008 and have now moved on to the Friends line (2012).

So this here, right here- is me living my childhood fantasies. I swear, LEGO Friends is the type of toy I would have begged my parents to get me as a little kid. I can imagine a hundred things I would’ve done just so my parents would get me a set. *insert laugh* But now that I have some money of my own, *insert another laugh* I have a chance to buy what I want as long as it is within my means.

LEGO Friends: Cat’s Playground (Toy Review)

Hello everyone! Starting today, I’ll be adding occasional toy reviews aside from my regular entries. I’ve always been a toy lover and I’m not ashamed to admit it. Who cares what age you are, right? Toys are awesome! Even to this day, I get giddy every time I get a chance to go to a toy store. And I’m just really blessed I’ve got friends from school who share the same love of toys as me too. Maybe I can feature some of our toy hunt adventures someday.

So to start off, I’ll be reviewing the LEGO Friends: Cat’s Playground mini set. I was surprised to find this little pretty- the only one of its kind left, at my local Toys R Us because it’s a retired set. I’ve been wanting to get my hands on this for some time, and with the Sale price (Php199.75 or $4.46), you just couldn’t go wrong. You can view the whole Series 1 line here (other series lines are featured as well). And if you’re interested in purchasing, do it now! Head to your local Toys R Us. These may not be around for long…
