Utilizing every piece from only set 41116, I built this "alternate" or Re-Build of it.
Taking her skyward-gazing equipment mobile, Olivia is energized to head North in search of a good view of the Aurora Borealis. Her trusty robot, Aura, is along for scouting and watching the equipment trailer. The trailer houses a rotating platform with collapsible stand for holding a telescope and binoculars.
Her vehicle is a modified "snow cat" of sorts, with ski boots up front. It's solar-powered, so she doesn't
have to worry about gas. She uses her sticky-notes with map coordinates to navigate toward a good spot.
A rack ladder gives her rooftop access. Aura attaches herself to a bar on the rear to ride high.
When she's not wheeling around, she can maintain a stationary position using her magnifying glass.
Of course it's getting chilly -- Olivia needs to ask for a "I love Science" sweater from the designers!
My creation for the Friends Bricks "Pop of Pink" building challenge ~ Jungle Discovery!
During Olivia's daily check at one of the research huts, she notices a new species of plant.
So do a few of the jungle creatures :-)
Now we know where Rabbit goes after Mia performs her magic ~ an imaginary adventuring world, while the Show goes on ...
Mia has just leaned into the secret compartment looking for her Rabbit after the show -- she had no idea what she'd find!
Building an *Alternate* playset with my Mia's Magic Trick bricks (using every brick) I wanted to imagine where Rabbit goes when she 'disappears' into the 'magic' compartment. Here is a photo to better see TLG's design of the 'magic' involved.
This set contains instructions to build some nice functions: the rotating 'curtains' and hidden trap door & compartment are super fun! This set should be a hit with any girl, or any LEGO fan!
My creation is intended to illustrate a certain imaginary character (who Rabbit obviously adores), along with a Tea Cart with tea & cakes :-)
"We are a worldwide community of
Friends fans: Our members are AFOLs, TFOLs, Parents, Sisters and
Brothers -- some seasoned LEGO fans & builders, and some newly
discovering the love of building through Friends bricks. Our core
purpose is sharing creations, reviews & news. Since the January 1st,
2012 launch of LEGO Friends, Heartlake City life has been inspiring us.
Stop by www.FriendsBricks.com and join in the Friendship!"
I hope my creations will spark your imagination and change the way you think of brick manipulation as very hardy play for girls to build science, technology, engineering and mathematical skills. Real girls build friendships frequently. Re-building LEGO sets is just part of the equation: because pig tails can un-curl and any set can be powered by a girl's inspiration from the world around her!
