The 2014 LEGO Friends Advent Calendar 41040

Some people don't like this LEGO Friends Advent Calendar, finding it too girlish, but I just love it. However, I couldn't buy it for our Little FECS, as he is a boy. So I bought one set for my friend's 6 year old daughter and she loved it. When I saw the tiny kitchen, stove, sink, cabinet, sofa, etc. that she has assembled, I have to confess that I just had to buy one set for myself too. I got it on a discount at BR for 129.95 DKK.

After all the Christmas frantic was over, and we finally have a few quieter days, I wanted to build my LEGO Friends set. Already this morning, our 5.5 year old Little FECS reminded me of building it and offered to help. He went on to build the 24 parts all by himself. Okie, I didn't get to build any of the cute furniture that I was looking forward to building, but I had a lot of fun watching him. 

He told me not to post pictures of him on facebook, since LEGO friends are for girls, and he is a boy, and he doesn't want anyone to see him playing with it. I said, "You are not playing with it. You are only helping Mommy to build it :-) 

Then he gave green light reminding me again that he was just helping me, and that he was not playing with it.

I was pleasantly surprised. Last year, we got him a LEGO City Advent Calendar, and he needed a little help here and there. What a difference a year has made! It must have been the practise he have gotten for building the small 3-in-1 sets for the last few weeks.

I love these furniture pieces from this set. They go well as fixtures for my LEGO Creator house :-)

It was all done by our Little FECS and we are ready to play with them :-):
