41704 Main Street Building adopts the approach of Creator 3-in-1’s mini modular buildings, such as 31097 Townhouse Pet Shop & Café and 31105 Townhouse Toy Store, while at the same time going bigger than any of them. There’s an entire street in the box, built from a total of 1,682 pieces in Friends’ vibrant colour palette.
It also includes a dozen mini-dolls to populate the bustling street scene, a skate ramp and a delivery van. It’s probably no surprise that 41704 Main Street Building is also one of the most expensive Friends sets to date, then, weighing in at £129.99 / $149.99 / €149.99, but it does look to offer plenty of bang for your buck.
If your LEGO Friends budget doesn’t quite run that high, there are seven more sets to choose from at a wide range of price points – and covering a huge variety of different subjects, from a street food market in 41701 Street Food Market (what else) to a wildly ambitious (and ambitiously wild) tree house in 41703 Friendship Tree House.
