Harold writes in to inform us that the new LEGO Friends Summer 2013 sets are now available at LEGO Brand Stores in Germany. In addition, he also reports finding LEGO Series 10 Minifigures as well.
I found the following summer sets today at the LEGO store in Wiesbaden Germany: LEGO Friends Dolphin Cruiser, LEGO Emma’s Sports Car, and the LEGO Heartlake High School. The LEGO Series 10 minifigures were also available but they only had a limited supply.
After purchasing the LEGO Friends Dolphin Cruiser I found that the pictures don’t do the set justice. The set is really designed well and will be giving my daughter many hours of LEGO fun.
