Lego Friends

It may be cold and windy outside but our kids are not complaining. Put on the wood heater, get out a few big boxes of LEGO and everyone is happy (except for baby Hattie who is playing safely away from all the little pieces). Especially the girls have a huge imagination and invent new stories all the time, so I think they would love to see what their Lego buddies get up to in the brand new LEGO Friends DVD:

Lego Friends DVD

In LEGO Friends ‘Camp Wild Hearts & Slam Dunk’ famous LEGO friends Olivia, Emma, Andrea, Mia and Stephanie show that life is bever boring if you spend it with friends. Learn about teamwork, persistence, friendship and trust in two exciting new adventures:

The girls are looking forward to summer full of fun at Camp Wild Hearts when they find out Heartlake City’s Mayor is planning to replace the camp with a mini golf. Of course the LEGO Friends don’t give up their favourite vacation without a fight and they set off to rescue the camp. There is even a touch of romance for Mia involved…

If the LEGO Friends want a shot at playing in the basketball championships they’re going to have to up their game. In Slam Dunk their team ‘The Streaks’ is quickly running out of time, if the girls can’t find a new coach and an extra player they are sure to bite the dust against rival team ‘The Glams’. Will they manage to end basketball season with a slam dunk?

LEGO Friends ‘Camp Wild Hearts & Slam Dunk’ is now available on DVD (RRP $19.95) at all good retail stores across Australia.

I can’t believe it is already a year ago that I first introduced you to the awesome Plus-Plus range from the Coccinella store. I was so excited to tell you about these quirky shaped building bricks from Denmark and one year on we still love them, I purchased our kids the big 400 pc box and they regularly tip all the Plus-Plus pieces over on the rug to build, create and play for ages, individually or together.

Plus-Plus 3-in-1 Pastel 220

Shaped like two plus symbols (hence the name) this funky building toy adds a whole new dimension to building fun. You can build upwards, sideways and even completely flat, Plus-Plus will really get those little minds working. Designed with a soft, smooth yet strong and durable material Plus-Plus is a fantastic tactile activity for children that really encourages them to get creative and think about the bigger picture (it does require a bit of patience!).

Plus-Plus 3-in-1 Neon

The new Plus-Plus 3-in-1 Mini building sets are available in two different sizes: 220 pieces ($19.95) and 480 pieces ($29.95). You can choose from three different colour combinations (basic, neon and pastel) to suit both boys and girls. Each Plus-Plus 3-in-1 set includes instructions to make three great models to get you started but obviously you can use your own imagination and building skills to design many more fantastic Plus-Plus creations, the options are endless!
