A great addition to the LEGO product range. My girls are 9, 7 and 3. The 9 year old got the most out of it, enjoying building it step by step. The 7 year old loves playing so enjoyed making up games and scenarios with the playsets. The 3 year old really enjoyed playing with it too.

Really easy to use. The LEGO parts fit together perfectly and all work together to make a really realistic playset. We tried the Butterfly Beauty Shop and the attention to details was lovely, from the tiny lipsticks to the till with money in the draws.
The pieces are sturdy and stick together well. It should last for years as long as we don't lose too many of the pieces.
Looks great. LEGO have introduced some new colours to the range, mainly pastel blues, purples and pinks. The whole range is really appealing to girls. Once the sets are built they are great to play with and a girl can get lost in the make believe world they have created.
Yes. It is designed to be educational to build and fun to play with. It certainly fulfils both of these functions.
I would say yes, because the sets will last for years. The smaller sets can be bought for £5 or £10 and are ideal for pocket money. The larger sets can be saved up for or bought as a birthday or Christmas present. But LEGO is never cheap so it may not seem like value for money for some.
It is different in that it's a playset for girls that you actually build yourself (unlike say, Polly Pocket, that comes pre built). However the concept of LEGO is not new and I'm sure that most girls would have played with other LEGO sets before.
A brilliant addition to the LEGO range and one that appealed much more to my 'girlie' girls than other ranges have.
