Kathryn Marriott, Lego Friends brand manager, comments: “Lego Friends has sold twice as well as expected and we have high expectations for the line in 2014. Our aim for this year is to continue to recruit new girls to the brand whilst introducing new and exciting models for our existing fans. The new sets are based around the beach and countryside – both themes which have already proved popular. They will feature the same attention to detail offering girls aged five to 12 an iconic Lego building experience combined with a multitude of opportunities for realistic role play.”
