LEGO Friends have and perhaps will always be a regular brick staple for the LEGO Group. And now that the subtheme is close to celebrating almost a decade of its inception since 2012, let’s now take a look at what to expect from this series come 2020. These LEGO Friends 2020 sets were first unveiled by Swiss online retailer Mein Spielzeug. There eight sets introduced in this initial wave of offering, two of which belong to the ‘4+’ subtheme. I’m not that much of a fan of the LEGO Friends theme, but I have to say that some of these new-for-2020 sets are impressively designed. I like how The Big Bake Show (41393) and Friendship Bus (41395) turned out. The former is sizeable enough to offer a brick-rendition of an on-stage baking contest while the latter offers a variety of play features rolled into a mobile set.
Additionally, there are new LEGO Friends 2020 sets that LEGO refers to as Magic Cubes – somewhat similar to the idea and execution of LEGO Pods that were released some time ago. These new LEGO Friends Magic Cubes feature each of the Heartlake City residents at work in their typical areas of interest. What is interesting about these Magic Cubes is that you can somehow connect them in many different ways adding a new level of play feature once you manage to get all of them. Plus, you also get a mystery pet that I believe to be unique on each of the Magic Cubes.
Same with the rest of the LEGO 2020 sets that were revealed days ago, we can expect these LEGO Friends 2020 sets to be released on January 1st, 2020. Some third-party retailers may release these sets earlier though as early as December 26, so be sure to be on a lookout if you are interested to grab these.
