LEGO Friends Sunshine Ranch
( Lego Systems, Inc. $69.99 Score: )

For kids who love riding and horses or dream of both, this Sunshine Ranch is a great pretend setting. A two story ranchhouse with stables for the three horses that Mia and Liza enjoy grooming and riding. They also like to do a fair amount of gardening at the ranch. This is an elaborate 721-piece building set with tons of small details and accessories to keep players busy pretending. But first they need to assemble the ranch and corral and even the hen house. Our 7-year old tester's mom wrote that the instructions were extremely easy and her daughter was ecstatic that it came with more than one doll. She did wish that the box was sturdier so the pieces could be put back in the box and then rebuilt. We know there are some who find the Friends sets as too gender specific, but in fact, we like the active roles the Friends play with their jobs and entertainment. If it brings girls to the construction toy aisle we say go for it! That's the way to help them develop dexterity, patience, spatial skills and imagination. 6-12
