LEGO Friends magazine & mini-sets

If you live in Europe, you are likely to have come across the LEGO Friends magazine at your local newsstand. This magazine is produced under license from the LEGO Group by the German publisher called Blue Ocean Entertainment AG. They sell the German edition, but various publishers in Europe offer the magazine translated in their language. I have seen versions in German, English, French, Dutch, Italian and Polish.  

This monthly magazine first came out in late spring/early summer 2014 in Europe, and attached to every issue is an exclusive LEGO Friends mini-set.

Heartlake Grand Hotel modular conversion by Kristel

Kristel takes the beautiful Heartlake Grand Hotel and converts it into a different kind of modular.

41101 Heartlake Grand Hotel - Modular Conversion Review
This will now fit nicely in a row of Creator style LEGO modular buildings.

41101 Heartlake Grand Hotel - Modular Conversion Review
As with all building, trying out new ways to configure the bricks is what led her to first re-create it with the revolving door in the corner.  It looks fabulous, yet presented further challenges.  Read about her process and see the rest of the images of the hotel's transformation on her blog Modulars By Kristel.
