Review: 41433 Party Boat


Let's have some fun in the water with our social bubble. There are a number of options at the rental booth. What should we rent first?

First we build the dark pink flamingo float. It has room for two minidolls plus snacks and drinks. It can be towed by the hitch on its neck. It looks happy to have you on for a ride. At the bottom are the extra pieces in bag #1

Review: 41447 Heartlake City Park

Oh, the weather outside is frightful,
but Heartlake City Park is delightful.




I started building on a snow day, and I'm finishing up this review in the following cold snap, but inside I'm enjoying a perfect spring day at the park with Olivia and Emma.

I am personally biased in favor of this set. That swan boat brings back fond memories of a trip to Japan, but I will try to set aside my bias for this review. I think it will be a fun set to build and play with, so let's go through it together.

Review: 41692 Vet Clinic Rescue Helicopter


Swoop in to rescue Cinnamon from that not-so-friendly crab! Let's get Mia's baby bunny back to the Lakeside jetty.

First we build this lovely heart-shaped island with Lotus flowers and lapping waves from the waters of Heartlake.

I like the way the azure slopes and aqua tiles are used for that effect.

Review: 41691 Doggy Day Care

Getting dogs to take baths can be tricky ... it seems Emma and Roxy are experts in suggestive rewards!  Welcome to Doggy Day Care 101 ...

The tiny star of this set is the new-for-2021 Puppy!  It's mold is in dark nougat with a heart fur marking above one eye and freckles.  Plus, the cutest tail ever!  The play agility tunnel is built first using a section of straight light blue transparent tube that came out last year.
