LEGO is finally launching their new building sets for this year. While there are great options for adults and teens, there are also 20 new LEGO Friends sets that are great for kids ages 6 and up

LEGO Friends help kids develop social-emotional skills as they work together to build and role-play with the mini dolls that come with each kit. Here are just a few of the new sets that dropped this week!

Older kids can build a more ambitious set with the Downtown Flower and Design Stores set. Designed for preteens ages 12 and up, the biggest set in this LEGO Friends launch comes with more than 2,000 pieces that kids can put together to create purple and yellow storefronts on Unity Street. The visual difference between the classic florist storefront and the angular design building with huge, open windows makes for a great playground for kids and their LEGO Friends. The Downtown Flower and Design Stores set is available for $159.99. Buy it here. Other new business-themed LEGO Friends sets include the Donut Shop, the Organic Grocery Store, the Hair Salon, the Mobile Bubble Tea Shop, the Heartlake Downtown Diner, and the Skate Park
