Happy Halloween! No tricks here today… just treats! I read over on BrickSet that it is anticipated the new Disney Princess LEGO sets should be in stores tomorrow, November 1st! That’s super exciting for one little girl over here and I can guarantee you there will be a lot of whining if one of these isn’t under the Christmas tree this year.

For those of you who already don’t like this set because of all the “girlie” touches, just think of what you could do with all the new pieces in unique colors. You could recoup some of the cost of the set by simply selling off the Anna and Elsa minidolls. Or, be nice and love on a little girlie girl who would be head over heels for you once she got these two cute minidolls wrapped up in a special box for Christmas.
Go on… you know you wanna give a special gift.
