FIRST IMPRESSION | Score: 9

I picked up this set for my 6 year old daughter, and we broke it out this weekend to put it together.  (Easter present).  My first impression - besides just HORSE (as the Friends line seems to be famous for) was that it looked interesting.  I thought it might be small and underwhelming, but thought it would be a nice addition to my daugther's Friends line.

UNIQUE PARTS | Score: 5

Nothing unique about this set.  Emma and a horse.

PLAYABILITY/BUILD EXPERIENCE | Score: 9

The car and trailer combo are fun.  Plenty of room for the horse to fit in there.  The jeep looks nice.  And there is a small stable area with room for cleaning supplies, food, and to hang the briddle.

VALUE FOR MONEY | Score: 7

At $24.99 MSRP, I feel this set as an appropriate bang for the buck.  I don't see any value in parting this set out, but do feel, from the "playability" side, this set has value.

THEME POPULARITY | Score: 8

Friends has a lot of popularity at this time.  This is one of the early sets, so there's a lot of value to be had here.

EXCLUSIVITY | Score: 3

Not a limited edition set.

PACKAGING | Score: 7

The packaging shows off the product every well.

GROWTH POTENTIAL | Score: 6

Personally, I feel that you'll get some growth in this set.  Not necessarily double MSRP, but probably closer to 150% over MSRP.  The balance here is that it isn't a particularly big set, so there will be a point where it won't grow any more.

On the other hand, this would go well paired with the horse stables or other horse related Friends products.  That makes it unique to this line, and could help create additional demand for this set.

DISPLAY QUALITY | Score: 9

On display, this set looks extremely nice.  Everything goes together nice, the colors look good.  This would pair up rather well with the Stables, and be a great display.

CONCLUSION & FINAL ANALYSIS | Score: 8

I really like this set.  The daughter really likes this set.  I'm glad I picked one up for her before it retired.  This is a great smaller Friends set, and pairs well with other pieces in the Friends collection.
