Animal Park is a huge Lego creation built by Anne Mette Vestergård and Lasse Vestergård. This Lego Friends styled Zoo is full of plants and animals. Originally created in 2015, Animal Park got an update in 2020. The new version features new animals and new plants that were released after 2015. Animal Park was recently on display at Lego World in Copenhagen, Denmark. This is one of those massive Lego models that is best seen in person.
Just like many theme parks and zoos around the world, this park features a train circling its border. Once inside the Lego Friends can enjoys a water show by the entrance fountains. Afterwards they can grab a bite to eat in the food court. Pizza is always a good choice!
This Lego zoo has all the animals. The bears are enjoying some fish, while the polar bears and their cubs are also having a fish snack. The penguins and seals seem happy, but may be a bit jealous watching the bears eat.
The Friends might spot some elk, a pack of wolves, some hungry panda bears, a few giraffes, some turtles, a flock of flamingos, and even some deer. Basically, any and all of the Lego animals are here.
There are even a few secrets to look out for. Olaf from Frozen is hiding around the park, as is Sweet Mayhem from the Lego Movie 2. Before you finish the day, make sure to visit the ferris wheel, and catch a ride on the train!
Stephanie spends a lot of time outdoors, riding horses, swimming, playing soccer, and riding a jetski. But did you know she is one of the best X-Wing fighter pilots in the galaxy? Her Lego Friends X-Wing is roughly the same scale as the official Star Wars X-Wings. It features a unique white, purple, and pink paint style. It has all the normal starfighter stuff: engines, s-foils, proton torpedo launchers, and glass canopy. The best feature is the astromech navigation system, or should it be called astrodog navigation system? Currently the best system to help target tennis balls with. This Lego Friends X-Wing also includes a clear display stand, and a small skiff for transporting goods and crew with. The Rebel helmets look great on the Lego Friends figures.
All of the Lego Friends and Lego Disney Princess figures need a place to stay. Especially if they need to fend off a horde of baddies. This glimmering white castle is the creation of Hrczs1. It features a keep and two towers, making an amazingly compact castle. There is very little room to spare. While the overall design is compact it is tall. Creating a kind of forced perspective trick that creates the illusion of size. The design is highlighted with purple, pink, teal, and gold trim. The most charming detail is the balcony attached to the central keep/tower. It looks like something out of Sleeping Beauty. A nice detail is that Cinderella’s Carriage fits perfectly inside of the gate. See if you can spot some of the other hidden details.
Even the Lego Friends should spend some time in the gym. This Lego Exercise Room is the creation of dr_spock_888. It features a stationary bike, a variety of weights, a hydration station, and boombox. Everything you need to get your heart rate up. This MOC is relatively simple, but it works well. Instantly recognizable. Keep it simple is what they say. There might even be more pieces in the flooring then everything else combined. Maybe. Who knew that Mia was such a body builder, even the little cat is amazed!
The Lego Friends: Lovely Hotel is extremely charming and popular. This Lego MOC is amazingly difficult to find, but a few more photos of this modular hotel have surfaced. The Lovely Hotel made its first appearance at the Fujiyama Lego Camp ’12. This pink and purple Cafe Corner mod was displayed between the other town and train creations. This is a total conversion of the famous Cafe Corner (10182), replacing everything with Friends inspired details. This creation would fit in perfectly in any Heartlake City display, and would be at home in a Modular Building layout.
When entering the Hotels front entrance an Ice Cream parlor can be found on the first floor. Here the Lego Friends can chill out and watch the coming and goings of the crowded streets outside. The entrance into the building can be found on the right side of the building. The first two rooms occupy the second floor, accessible from the narrow staircase. Each room features a stylish bed, and vanity. On the top floor is the penthouse suite. This room is jam packed with a full bathroom, bed, vanity, telephone, chandelier, and even custom curtains.

When they are not running super fast Hedgehogs are also conquering space. These Lego Hedgeman Legionaries consist of a Standard Bearer and Shockgun Trooper. An amazingly awesome combo of the Rock Monster Body (from the Power Miners theme) and the recent Hedgehog (from Lego Friends). It is also worth taking a closer look at the Banner, the combination of the scorpion and wing works well, as does the purple Lego purse in the Shockgun.
The Lego Friends seem to be going on adventures all the time. From fishing to spaceship flying; they even find time to relax in lovely hotels.

“I chose to build a taco truck, because, having lived in California for about ten years, those are probably what I miss the most from the US now that I am back in France!!
El Lago, of course in reference to Heartlake City (truck is usually parked near the rowboat club ^^) (whaaa?)” — fujiia
Lego has the ability to make and sell Disney Frozen themed sets, and yet they only have one release so far. It seems that anything with the Frozen logo is instantly popular, and sells out in no time. This theme is a license to print money. The first Lego set is called Elsa’s Sparkling Ice Castle (41062), it is $39.99 and has 292 pieces. There are also three exclusive figures: Elsa, Anna, and Olaf. The piece to part ratio is extremely high, making this one of the more expensive sets for what you get. So is the Frozen Castle worth it? Check out the full review, by mostlytechnic, over on Eurobricks: here.
The full set is actually a bit different then what you would expect. The design of the castle does not reflect what is in the film, and is a weird white and transparent blue. This is more of a Frozen mountain then a castle. But, for most people that won’t matter, because the figures are what they want. And, Lego really went all out. The resemblance to their movie counterpart is extremely close for Lego figures. Elsa and Anna look good in Lego. Olaf looks good, but is not as special.
Lego has a new theme arriving this spring called the Lego Elves. Some of the first sets have already been revealed, but the Lego marketing is just starting to take off. The official Lego site has a teaser page up, promising more details in March 2015. Meanwhile some short videos have started to appear around the internet. Featuring some beautifully animated videos, it would not be a surprise if the Lego Elves had their own cartoon (like Ninjago or Legends of Chima). Interestingly, there is very little Lego in these first videos.
The Lego Elves look like they would fit right in with the Disney Fairies. Seeing as Lego has been creating Disney themed Friends sets, it would be interesting if the Fairies line had a release too. There are four main Elves (Aira, Naida, Azari, and Farran) with this release, and one main human (named Emily Jones).
Make sure to check out the Teaser Trailer, and Meet Azari below:
