My friend Amelie from London Mums Kids Club and I recently attended the opening of Heartlake City, a brand new LEGO® Friends themed area, guests to the LEGOLAND Windsor Resort. To celebrate there was a temporary gigantic 2.6m x 3.6m LEGO mosaic of singing superstar Taylor Swift after she topped a poll asking youngsters which celebrity they would most like as their best friend. The mosaic was created by fans visiting the Resort on the Bank Holiday weekend using a total of 35,840 individual bricks.
It was our first visit there and we were super excited. Check out our video review of the new Lego Friends are as well as the whole park.

I am 13 years old and I love being a child reporter for London Mums Magazine. I have done this since I was 8! I am a crazy Lego engineer, I like Fortnite but I am still a big fan of Shaun the Sheep, Wallace & Gromit, all Aardman & Johnny English movies. I also have a passion for airplanes and I would like to become an aircraft engineer one day. Check out my posts here and my videos on the London Mums YouTube channel.
