This article is about the theme, you may be looking for the video game, 5707 LEGO Friends.
Friends is a theme to be released in April 2012. It will replace Belville, and include 23 sets total. Sets include houses, a cafe, a vet clinic, a beauty shop, and stables. Brick colours include pink, purple, turquoise, and tan. It will be a more story-based theme following five girls (known preliminarily as animal lover, smart girl, beautician, singer, and a social girl). Sets include some mini-dolls that you put together and are about the same size as regular minifigures. There will be custom moulds for horses, cats, porcupines, and cupcake bottoms, that are not seen in any other themes.
