Review: 41099 Heartlake Skate Park

41099 Heartlake Skate Park Thumb

When I picked up my 75099 Rey’s Speeder set at Toys R Us the other day, I decided to take advantage of their sale and pick up another set for half price. It seemed like a good opportunity to buy something from a theme I don’t usually buy. So here we are – my first ever proper Friends set.

41099 Heartlake Skate Park

RRP $29.99
199 Pieces ($0.15 per piece)
Available online and most retailers.

I had seen pictures of this set online as I had been reporting on LEGO news and thought it looked interesting. There are some of the Friends sets that seem a bit boring but a skate park seemed like something different. The box contains two numbered bags containing different parts of the set.

The set includes a Mia minidoll and a white puppy. I believe the printing on Mia’s outfit is quite common. The hair and helmet are combined into a single element made out of the softer rubber material. While I appreciate the need for safety I would have liked to see a normal hair piece included as an alternative.

The Friends style animals are very cute, and the included puppy is no exception. It also fits perfectly on the skateboard.

The actual build begins with the construction of the half pipe. I really like the colours used here. I didn’t apply the stickers but I don’t think the finished model is worse without them.
