It’s not often I treat myself to a new Lego set but when I heard about Lego Friends Emma’s Creative Workshop Playset (41115) I really wanted it.
Emma is sewing beautiful hair bows to sell on her e-shop. Check the sewing pattern on her whiteboard and use the sticky notes to add changes or new ideas. Then it’s time to get cutting, but which colour will make the nicest bows? Get to work at the sewing machine to help Emma turn her designs into beautiful creations ready to buy—she just needs to take pictures and upload them to her website.
This was a really easy build. Some little people may have helped.
It was actually missing a piece and I noticed that the instructions were slightly different to the picture on the box. The set includes Emma, her desk with laptop and camera, design board and sewing table.
It’s a lovely set. I’m not sure how long I’ll be able to keep it for myself though!
We treated ourselves to the new Lego Frozen set – Elsa’s Sparkling Ice Castle – from the Lego Shop in Watford.
Little Sis was very excited to get her hands on this set as she’s a huge fan of Frozen.
I just about managed to get home and give her some lunch before she wanted to build it. Inside the box was 2 instruction booklets, a sheet of stickers, 3 bags of Lego and one small white base board.
I love building Lego 🙂 The instructions were easy to follow and it didn’t take too long to build. In the first bag was a sweet figure of Princess Anna and her sleigh.
Little Sis loved helping me build these cool steps which fold away.
The finished Palace has 3 floors.
Olaf, complete with picnic blanket and sandwich!
The completed set has been played with all day. Both children love it and haven’t noticed that it includes some rogue elements such as the flowers and trees!
There are some cool details, even if it doesn’t really follow what you see in the film. The official blurb from the Lego website is as follows:
Help Olaf and Princess Anna have a cool adventure in Queen Elsa’s magical Ice Castle!
Hop aboard the sleigh and join Anna and Olaf as they pay a visit to Queen Elsa’s beautiful ice palace for some frosty fun! What will they do first? Play hide and seek behind the secret staircase, or go skating around the castle? They could ski down the ice hill or prepare frozen treats in the castle’s ice cream bar and then get ready for a picnic in the snow under the magnificent icicle tree. It’s all up to you! First have fun building Elsa’s Sparkling Ice Castle. Then it’s time to play! Includes Queen Elsa and Princess Anna mini-doll figures, plus Olaf the snowman.

The day started at West Ruislip station which is the western terminus of the Central Line. This was our first visit to the station and we had to navigate many steps, grrrrr.
We took the Central Line all the way to Shepherd’s Bush.
We wanted to visit Westfield London as we knew there was a very special Lego display! The children were able to see the latest Lego sets, play with lots of Lego Duplo and we had our photo taken with two of the Lego Friends characters!
Before we knew it it was time to go home, this time via White City, again lots of steps, grrrr!
The toddler got his first digital watch which he has been asking for weeks. It features Disney Cars, natch. Major potty training bribery is still going on.
Little Sis was happy to leap into bed, barely registering this was her first night with a pillow and duvet.
