THE BOX:

Hedgehog also has a hog house to rest in. The box has curved sides of the Friends line of boxes, plus the image of the fives Friends on the corner.

INSIDE THE BOX:

There are two bags of parts and an instruction booklet. The bags are not numbered. It may not be needed for a small set. Although I find I can build faster with numbered bags.

Here are the contents of the smaller bag. You get a printed 2x2 bullseye target round tile. There are a couple of cherries and an assortment of flower/leaf pieces.

Here are the contents of the larger bag. You get an apple and a hedgehog. The hedgehog has only been available in 4 other sets. You get one crossbow that first appeared in the 2015 Millenium Falcon set.

THE MINIDOLLS:

The set comes with one Mia minidoll. Mia is sporting new torso and legs for 2016. The same torso and legs would later be reused for the 2017 Friends Heartlake Sports Center set Mia.

THE INSTRUCTIONS:

Here is a sample page of the instruction booklet. The steps are well laid out and clear. I had no problems following them.

THE BUILD:

With 114 pieces and good instructions, the build was completed quickly and without any issues. Here is the finished set. Mia looks like she is ready to shoot something.

SUMMARY:

Playability: 8/10
Design: 7/10
Price: 7/10
Parts: 7/10
Minidolls: 9/10
Overall: 7/10

There is something fun about shooting targets with a crossbow. It is a challenge to aim Mia's arm correctly. For play, I give it an 8/10.

For design, I like the target stand and hedgehog house. But I am not sure about Mia's shelter. It feels like it was an afterthought add-on.  Maybe it should be a weapon storage shed instead. I give it a 7/10.

The price seems in line with other sets. I got mine for free so I can't complain. 7/10.

Most of the parts are pretty Friends set generic. I don't see it as a part pack set. I do like the printed bullseye and stud shooting crossbow. You also get a hedgehog.  I give 7/10.

You get a Mia minidoll in a new 2016 outfit. She is my favorite Friends character. There may be some bias in the 9/10.

Overall, I give this set a 7/10. It has good play value. It is not all that great for a parts pack. The weapon, minidoll and hedgehog are cool.

 

Ok, hedgehog, please stay still...

Pew, pew, pew... (Ok, so I like Star Wars sound effects.)

The set goes together nicely with other Adventure Camp sets. Is there an archery challenge?

Note: Chewie is not included with the Friends sets.

I remember I hoped this set to have MALE hedgehog, Shame is once again female and male stays rare...

But that hedgehog make no sense and another target or a tree would be much better.
