LEGO Friends Heartlake Dog Show (3942)


Buy at Amazon

This was the first Lego set I bought for my daughter. She’d been playing with sets owned by her cousins, as well as hand-me-downs from my own childhood, for awhile, but hadn’t done a significant amount of actual building, so I wanted to get a relatively simple set to start with, yet one with good play value. This one fit the criteria, with the additional advantage of being animal-themed and relatively inexpensive.

Now that she has several larger and more diverse sets, she doesn’t play very often with the actual stage, but she still makes frequent use of the minifig, animals, and accessories, especially the see saw and jumps.

Update: Since we purchased it, this set has been discontinued and is now priced as a collectible rather than a children’s toy. As an alternative, consider the Heartlake Horse Show (41057).

My rating: (3 / 5)
