Bag #5

Interesting parts

Some more WIN can be found in this bag, whether it’s the six Trans Neon Yellow 1×2 bricks (without pin), the two Transparent 1x6x5 panels, the four Blue 2×4 tiles, the five 1×1 Medium Blue tiles, or another chance of obtaining the S4 Snowboarder’s snowboard.

A couple of new additions are some printed 1×1 round tiles in Flat Silver (used to represent coins), and the bar holder with clip in Yellow. We also get a Medium Azure rucksack, which we remember seeing in Heartlake High.

That Yellow bar holder part takes its place early on at the back of the store, which uses one of the 16×16 Bright Light Blue plates.

It’s used as a holder for the skateboard, where it attaches to the middle of one of the pairs of wheels. Next to it is a minifigure head placeholder for a new style baseball cap, with a hole for adding an accessory (such as headphones).

At the front of the store, the rucksack is placed on display, along with a headless minidoll serving as a mannequin. If you’ve bought the other Friends sets you probably have several pairs of the trousers.

After we add a fully assembled bicycle, all that’s left is to build the walls of the shop.

A number of random sports accessories adorn the front of the shop, including the soccer ball from Stephanie’s Soccer Practice and the basketball from Heartlake City Pool, as well as another tennis racquet and another pair of useless flippers crammed into a tiny tray.

Tiny, tiny parts as expected – but yay, a spare coin!
