I disagree with those who hate on Lego’s Friends line precisely because those sets are not the culmination of the creative process of building with Lego, but instead are the beginning. Case in point, 17-year-old Anika Brandsma of the Netherlands added actual automation to her Lego Friends Olivia’s Invention Workshop (#3933) model with the help of Mindstorms motors. And lest ye doubt the ‘leetness of Anika’s Lego skills, check out her ripcord-powered Lego flyer, her lovely robotic duck and an epic NXTified Technic UNIMOG model. Plus, her stop-motion fu is superior! Video of the Friends model after the break.
