The LEGO Friends Play Cubes Series 1 has just been released at the start of the year, and it looks like LEGO is all prepped to release another wave of these sets. The LEGO Booth at the New York Toy Fair took the opportunity of showcasing their LEGO Friends Play Cubes Series 2, with five additional sets scheduled to be released on April 1, 2020.
The Brothers Brick managed to snap some images of these sets, including a closer look at what we can expect from them. Retailing for $9.99 each similar to its predecessors, this next wave of LEGO Friends Play Cubes features several new pieces, particularly those of animal plush toy figures. I guess this is now becoming a trend with younger LEGO fans as LEGO finds out through their market research.
The LEGO Friends Play Cubes Series 2 centers on a shopping theme that includes a minidoll and a mystery animal plush which I assume is not so mysterious any more after this reveal. Though I’m not that much of a fan of the LEGO Friends theme, I appreciate what LEGO did here by including a set of four animal plush figures on each of Play Cube. The cool part is that these animal plush figures are based on new molds and colors.
