Summer Friends sets now available, Sheffield & Manchester opening dates!
As you may have seen in the "New at shop.lego.com" banner, the summer Friends sets are now available for purchase from shop.Lego.com. I hope I'm not the only one excited about these sets - there are some great sets in the range, my favourites being Adventure Camper, Mia's Bedroom and Summer Riding Camp - but maybe that's just because I got to help build those for display at The Lego Show! What do you think of the new Friends sets, with their primary focus on the theme of horse-riding?
In other news, the Stores page at shop.Lego.com has also revealed the 'soft' opening dates for the new stores Up North. Sheffield will be opening on Friday 27th July (http://stores.lego.com/en-us/Sheffield/LandingPage.aspx) but Manchester is apparently opening on Friday 20th July - yes, tomorrow! (http://stores.lego.com/en-us/Manchester/LandingPage.aspx).
The Grand Opening events (with the promotional items, which are yet to be announced) will be at a later date (24-26th August for Manchester, 31st August-2 September for Sheffield) but if you're local to the Manchester store, why not pop down tomorrow and let us know what you think of it!
