Heartlake High - with all the bells & whistles

This fan-created Heartlake High by carebear has every detail bricked-in ... from floors to lockers, and vending machines!
 While retaining the look of set #41005 this fan creation was built with 32 versions of that set, along with 60 additional LEGO Friends sets.
Lots of activity, and use of roof space for outdoor time.  Notice the bike rack and Lamp posts.

The original 5 LEGO Friends: Mia, Emma, Stephanie, Olivia, and Andrea.

Nicole and Sophie tend to animals.  The basketball backboard shows the original Friends graphics.

 See inside the top floor: Cafeteria, Library, and Music room.

With the Library module removed, you can see the center all with vending machines.

 Up close view of the Cafeteria -- it looks like Mrs. Stevens is there today.

Here is a better view of the vending machines.  Stephanie has lots of choices.

See all the wonderful floor tiling in the Music Room, plus built-in cabinets.

The other side of the school.  This schoolyard looks very busy; good thing there's a fence with all those pets.

The bottom level reveals the Art room, Teacher's Lounge/Office, Restrooms, and Science classroom.

Art room for painting, photography and more -- with colorful floor tiles too.

Lockers in the center hall, near the ringing School Bell, along with water fountain and news bulletin board.

Olivia's favorite subject is Science -- this lab looks like a fun place to learn!


Heartlake Carousel

Watch it go around, then choose your color & style of ride on Denil's carousel.

Trick-or-Treat on a Heartlake City street!

Our Halloween Building Challenge creations are definitely a treat!

Emma's Halloween Bedroom
Emma has on her costume while decorating her room.

Kristel's creation of a Halloween-themed room is the perfect place to start the fun with all the
classic icons and colors for the season.

This really sets the mood for heading out in Heartlake City to see what other Friends are
creating for their costumes!

The Pumpkin Diner
The Pumpkin Diner is a great spot to spice up the festive activities this year!  Palixa has designed a
brickly-carved gourd shape into modular lit-up eating establishment.  Feast your eyes on how
detailed the interior is -- as it fills up with costumed Friends!

Just in time and around the corner is a quick-stop Halloween Shop for just the right
accessories to complete a costume.

This colorful and whimsical shop has lots of face-painting supplies, capes & brooms to
celebrate the harvest moon.
Nick has used Sophie's mud-mask face for added spookiness as she finds a crystal-staff to
complete her look, while helping Friends get ready for trick-or-treating.

Lego minidoll costume shop
Making sure there are plenty of clever costumes for all, the Heartlake Minidoll Costume Shop 
by mber4 & kids is a 2-story shop built with eerie display windows out front.
Lego minidoll costume shop
Inside upstairs you can see it's practically a monster-mash of Friends searching for that
certain costume so they can trick-or-treat too!
Lego minidoll costume shop
The first floor has lots of hats and ghoulish accessories that we can see since this MOC is
modular too.  Be careful going up those stairs ... we've seen what's at the top!

Here's a better look at the costumes worn by Friends at Palixa's The Pumpkin Diner:

LEGO accessories really do make the combinations limitless with your own imagination!

Lego Friends Halloween Party
Lots of fun costume varieties and a candy cauldron here at this Halloween Party by Tina

Day 276 of 365: Yum Yum House
As for heading out onto the streets ... beware of the Yum Yum House built by dr_spock_888 ... it looks enticing for the evening's fun, yet be sure your costume won't turn to permanent after enjoying those treats!!

We hope you've been inspired straight to your bones! Enjoy building during this fun season!


Petshop Girls - A Rooftop Band

Music has always been an aspect of LEGO Friends lifestyle, and the latest Pop Star sub-theme
adds even more.  So, taking a set concept as the Vet Clinic plus Pet Shop and adding a musical
flair like Charles & Adrienne Esseltine have done is fun & creative!
Petshop Girls (03)
This MOC incorporates designs from original sets, while adding rounded architectural
features (not easy) and light-up bricks to give it that extra "live concert" effect.

Petshop Girls (27)
The characters created to make up the band are whimsical, fun, and eclectic like real-life bands.

Petshop Girls (29)
The blend of animal aspects tie in with the Pet Shop theme -- making it hard not to smile while
imagining the band playing :-)


Friendly Settlement

Imagine Heartlake City many years ago . . .

Friendly Settlement
A Friendly Settlement is how Piotr Machalski's creation portrays the origins.
Enjoys some other views of this "Friends Village" to see all the activity.


Heartlake High Street

   Inspired by LEGO Friends sets converted into modular buildings by other fans, Big_Sal_224 created "High Street" as it might exist in Heartlake City.

Heartlake High Street
This creation was on display at the Yorkshire Bricks fan convention in the UK in May 2015.

Heartlake High Street
Imagine yourself strolling along and be inspired!


LEGO Friends Animal Park Fan Creation

Celebrating all the wonderful animals we enjoy with the LEGO Friends theme, Anne Mette VestergĂ„rd and Lasse VestergĂ„rd (mother and son) have created a wonderfully-detailed zoo layout. 
Even the sign "Animal Park" is brick-built with a commonly found color in Friends sets.

   If you are lucky enough to attend "Friends days" at Legoland Billund (Denmark) this June, you can see the Heartlake Hot Air Balloon sets cleverly turned into a Ferris Wheel ride.
For additional images (33) of the massive creation, see her Flickr set.


Music Store and Food Market Modulars in a row

The Pop Star Recording Studio (41103 Summer 2015) has been modularized into a Music Store by DDoshini and set next to a modulized version of Heartlake Food Market (41108) along the row with last set wave's salon.

For additional views of the sides of each building individual, check out the set on Flickr.


Olivia's House as Full Modular build

As the flagship set for Friends, Olivia's House also represents a gain in modular-style building techniques.  The concept of: build/play/build, while being able to build sections that can be rearranged later is a core tenet of the LEGO Friends line.
Olivias house
This fan-built Olivia's House by LegoOzp has four complete sides and roof.

Olivias house
The rear of the house has been fitted with a patio, a garden, tree, sandbox, and the original swing-set has been expanded to two swings.

Olivias house
An aerial view with the roof off gives us a glimpse inside for details.  This full house has managed to incorporate three bedrooms (the original Olivia's House has only one).  The addition of the garage also provides a place for a car.

Olivias house
The wonderful thing about modulars is being able to remove floor sections to see into and play in more areas of a structure -- such as the bottom floor containing the Kitchen, Foyer, and Living/Dining room.

No attention to detail has been spared on this creation while it stays true to the original TLG issued design.

Please enjoy additional images of this lovely MOC here.


Friendly Food Carts and Trucks

Hungry for a snack or something more?  You won't have to look far around Heartlake City to find a satisfying bite to eat!
Our February Building Challenge creations rolled in with a nice variety of flavors:
Emma's Fruit Cart
Emma's Fruit CartEmma's Fruit Cart
Emma's Fruit Cart by Kristel showcases the colorful and delicious fruit LEGO people are fortunate to have available!  In addition to a clever cart stand for stability, there's even a built-in step for easy access in loading the sweet cargo.

Friends Popcorn Cart
Inspired by a real life Popcorn Cart, Palixa and The Bricks created it with bricks in the classic colors for easy identifying the crunchy-salty treat along any street, near the mall, beach, or park.

LEGO Friends Milk Cart
In another classic style, dr_spock_888 built a horse-drawn cart for Milk Delivery to the front door of some Heartlake City residents.  Maya must not mind getting up early ;-)

Serving traditional Puerto Rican shaved ice, this Piragua Cart by A Pretty Rock bursts with colors of the various flavors for the cooling treats. It's a bike-pulled cart, so you never know which street you'll find it tomorrow.

Cotton Candy food truck
Cotton Candy truck by mber4 has clever brick usage to simulate the spun sugar bowl function and the truck color surely makes this popular treat easy to spot on any street.
cotton candy and balloon animal cartIMG_0371
There's even fun balloon animals being made and another type of cotton candy.

Coffee Truck
Grab a cup of coffee because we have more creations to share!  This Coffee Truck by Nimura uses the Friends colors in a "pick-me-up" way that would certainly give mornings or afternoons the perk we need many days.

Monster Greens - a juice and smoothie truck by mber4 for a healthy thirst quencher.
IMG_0380Monster Greens open for business
You can see the blender for smoothies and the van color makes it easy to think juicy.

All Terrain Food Truck by dr_spock_888 features a barbeque area on the back so no matter if Friends are in the mountains or by the lake -- even in winter they can get a bite to eat.
Day 058 of 365: All Terrain Food Truck with BBQ
The roof comes off for easy access and hungry Friends can ski right up to it.

Taco Truck El Lago (Lago Corazon!! :p )
The El Lago Taco Truck by fujiia is certainly a welcome roving source of saucy good meal selections for the end of the day.  Hearty tacos from a menu of personal taste gives these Friends a place to sit while enjoying their choices.
Taco Truck El Lago (Lago Corazon!! :p ) -On the road
Make sure you get to the spot before the truck moves on -- you can probably follow the scent to the next street.
Taco Truck El Lago (Lago Corazon!! :p ) -Open truck
Not only is this creation sure to make you hungry for tacos (especially a fish taco) fujiia made sure it is accessible and playable.  That's a good thing for replenishing the food supplies in this truck, because I think we now have lots of hungry Friends after this building challenge!
