Mini review: 41018 Cat's Playground

Posted by ,

41018 Cat's PlaygroundBy popular demand, here are some photos of the second of the series one Friends collectable polybag sets, 41018 Cat's Playground.

This one consists of a cat, an 'activity centre' that'll be immediately recognisable to anyone who's had a cat (the likes of which you can see here), a scratching post and a fish supper.

 

41018 Cat's PlaygroundHere's the kitty: isn't she adorable? :-) Actually she's not unlike one of my own cats, Tammy, but with a bit more white on her face. I think Tammy would run a mile if I tried to tie a ribbon on her head though!

There are ten less pieces in this set than in the squirrel house, and overall it seems a lot less substantial, so is not such good value from that point of view. Both sets contained more spare parts than you'd normally see; this one has two extra ribbons and a tan 2 x 2 dish.

The instructions quote the URL http://www.lego.com/friends/animals/ that isn't live yet but will apparently have instructions for combination models using parts from all three sets as well as instructions for alternative models for each set.

Turtle's Oasis coming up next...

Is it just me or does the scratching post look a bit rude?!

My kids really loved all three, but I also did feel this was a bit less substantial. Looking at our Lego store, this was the one that had the most remaining. I have to say, though, this cat is very cute.

My daughter bought one today (We have a black and White cat - may have swung it, though I wanted the Turtle). It was a reasonably simple build, but in reality she just wanted the cat.
