We reviewed the LEGO Friends Olivia's House for playfest hosted by Izziwizzi Kids. I was slightly apprehensive about building this LEGO house (no Ed Sherran puns here) because my last encouter with LEGO building left me somewhat frazzled.
Miss C was super excited to play with Olivia's house and her face was a picture when she realised we had to build it first. Wee Z couldn't wait to build it though so we left the building to him and Daddy.
Here is our video review we put together for playfest and Izziwizzi Kids.
The kids enjoyed playing with the house once it was built. Wee Z had Peter up to all sorts of mischeif whilst Miss C loved playing with the little white cat.
It didn't last long built as it was though and the kids had the house has an apartment within 10 minutes. Then it all fell apart. That was one of the other drawbacks I found to building LEGO playsets; they don't do so well for actual play time. Bits kept coming off or falling off and I felt like I was constantly picking up and fixing pieces for them.
Personally, I'm happy with LEGO as a huge box of multi-coloured bricks and some imagination.
Dream Toys are the theme this week on playfest. We've been reviewing the toys selected as the 2012 Dream Toys for Christmas. Anyone can join in with playfest so if you can make it then please do join in!
