On Friday 20th – Monday 23rd July, the LEGO® Friends 2012 Roadshow is coming to LEGOLAND Discovery Centre at The Trafford Centre, Manchester.
Visitors will be introduced to the wonderful world of LEGO Friends and the five central characters; Emma, Olivia, Andrea, Stephanie and Mia who have travelled all the way from their hometown of ‘Heartlake City’. Each friend has her own hobbies and interests including animals, performing arts, invention and design. Come along with your friends and discover which of the LEGO Friends is most like you.
LEGO Friends is the must have girls’ toy of 2012, with LEGO mini-doll character figures, bright and beautiful new brick colours and extra special little details. Not only can you and your friends enjoy building the new LEGO sets, you can also have fun playing and acting out your own stories with the LEGO Friends characters in your very own Heartlake City that you’ve built together.
There will be a host of exciting activities at the roadshow for you to get involved with. Have fun building and playing with the range of sets; if you’re a budding scientist then try Olivia’s Inventors Workshop, or if you’re an animal lover then Mia’s Puppy House is for you! You can also try to find your inner fashionista and design an outfit for the stylist Emma in the LEGO Friends Roadshow competition.
If that wasn’t enough, there will be lots of LEGO Friends goodies up for grabs and you can sign up to the free LEGO Friends Club Magazine which is packed full of fun activities, games and stories.
