LEGO Friends Hedgehog's Hideaway - Review

 Pros:
  • Great piece selection and colors
  • Alternate and combined building instructions available
  • New female Hedgehog in new color (dark brown)
  • Apple and pitch fork are great accessories
Cons:
  • None
   Finally, the anticipated Series 2 LEGO Friends Animal packs have arrived!  Initial low resolution photographs of Hedgehog's Hideaway didn't really impress me.  I remember thinking to myself, "didn't LEGO already give us a Hedgehog?"  But after seeing it up close, I am pleased with the set.

   The parts are excellent, some of which are exclusive to Friends, like the dark read leaf and the tan pieces.  MOCers will love these additions.
   But for my daughter, it was clear the best part of this mini set was the inclusion of a new Hedgehog pet (name unknown).  The eyes have a new print and the body color is distinctly different from Oscar.  Looks like Oscar has a new lady friend to share an apple with in the hideaway.
   One thing I really like about this year's Animal foil packs is the instruction booklets provide a picture of an alternate build and a combined build (all three series 2 sets together). For last year's series 1 Animals, we didn't find out until well after they were released.  This year it's hard to miss.  Building instructions for the alternate and combined builds available: lego.com/friends/animals

   Lastly, it's always great to get extra accessories like the apple and pitch fork.

   This little set surprised me in a positive way so I'll rate it a 8 out of 10.  For the price, you can't really go wrong.
