For the last few years, the LEGO Friends theme has stated getting the sort of slice-of-life scenes as sets that make City fans green with envy. And that proud tradition continued at New York Toy Fair 2017 last weekend, where TLG debuted a very unique set that I know even many non-Friends collectors are going to be giving a serious look: the LEGO Friends Snow Resort Ski Life 41324 set!

Given that I’ve already talked about two upcoming pizza-related LEGO 2017 sets just in the past few days, you might think that I’m done talking about pizza for the foreseeable future. But just like the rest of us (and the Ninja Turtles), it looks like TLG has pizza on the brain! So not only will we be getting two pizza delivery sets this winter, but a place to make those pizzas: the LEGO Friends 2017 Heartlake Pizzeria 41311 set!

As I was looking over my articles and reviewing what was left to talk about as far as LEGO Summer 2016 sets go, I was shocked to discover that there was an advent calendar I hadn’t talked about yet! Yes, I covered the LEGO Star Wars 2016 Advent Calendar and LEGO City 2016 Calendar last month–but that’s only two out of three!

When word leaked out that a LEGO Roller Coaster set was coming later this year, collectors went positively wild with anticipation. But when people found out it was a Friends set, the crowd went, well… mild. Even so, despite the lukewarm reception and criticism it’s received from some, I was extremely impressed when I saw the Summer 2016 LEGO Friends Amusement Park Roller Coaster at New York Toy Fair 2016 last month…

LEGO Friends Summer 2016 Sets Hot Dog Van

While I think that the LEGO Friends theme has improved exponentially over the past couple years, I never go into a Toy Fair expecting Friends to be the theme that almost literally knocks my socks off. But at the New York Toy Fair 2016 earlier this month, that’s exactly what happened, largely due to the new Amusement Park sub-theme that is absolutely brilliant! So let’s begin the previews of that series with one of my favorite sets in it: the LEGO Friends Amusement Park Hot Dog Van 41129!
