Back in 2012, LEGO set out to create “legos for girls” by creating a new line of toys and marketing them to girls ages 5 and up. We’re not sure why LEGO did it, as LEGOs are for both boys and girls. However, it spawned the many LEGO Friends sets we have today.
The new brand launched with 23 sets at the time and they feature five main characters set in the fictional town of Heartlake City. Of course, each of those five characters — Andrea, Emma, Mia, Olivia, and Stephanie — have their own distinct personalities and interests, giving young girls a new character to relate to. So whether your little girl liked to adventure at the beach or prefers to paint the landscape, the idea is that there was/is a LEGO Friends character for her to latch onto.
Here are the top 10 best LEGO Friends sets for girls available in 2017.
1. LEGO Friends Amusement Park Roller Coaster
Nothing says fun like a theme park, and that’s why this LEGO Friends AMusement Park Roller Coaster (#41130) is a great option. This mega-size kit comes with 1124 pieces and allows your child to build a push-along roller coaster and mini theme park. It comes with four Minidolls — Naya, Andrea, Emma, and Matthew — as well as some accessories you’d expect to find at a theme park, including tickets, popcorn boxes, a map, photographs, and more.
The roller coaster track, itself, measures 27″ long, and it comes with a coaster train that has four carriages. This LEGO Friends set also includes a rotating ferris wheel that stands at over a foot high.

It comes with baking accessories like numerous cupcakes and toppings, cake stands, and a revolving display.

4. LEGO Horse Vet Trailer Building Kit
Every little girl likes to pretend to be a veterinarian at some point, and we all know that all kids love horses. For these reasons, the LEGO Horse Vet Trailer Building Kit from the LEGO Friends toys line is a great option.

It comes with an open design that includes a pizza oven, worktop, sink, cash register, and an upstairs restaurant balcony, complete with tables and stools. It also comes with a pizza delivery scooter — similar to the Roblox toys pizza guy, which is also fun. This cool toy might make them hungry for pizza, but at least they’ll have fun playing with it.
