2014 sets images from German Toy Fair

Jungle is the setting for LEGO Friends in the second wave of sets for 2014.  In addition to new animals and some fun action scenes with rescues, there's an open-air shopping mall.  The photo-booth we've seen in various TV show episodes is finally going to be built in bricks.

 Left you can see part of Jungle Bridge Rescue #41036, then in front of that is the Jungle Falls Rescue #41033.  The larger set with slide is Jungle Rescue Base #41038.  The set in front is  First Aid Jungle Bike #41032.  In back you can see boxes of Heartlake Shopping Mall #41058.

 Close-up of Jungle Rescue Base #41038 via spieletest.at

 Advent Calendar, Heartlake Shopping Mall, Jungle Bridge Rescue (the one with the helicopter)

 Heartlake Shopping Mall #41048 (Photo booth seen in videos on left)

 Check back for more images as they become available.  This is the first series of sets based outside Heartlake City.  The new Jungle scenario looks to provide lots of adventure for Friends!
