    My Take on the Lego Carousel
    | 45-54
    I would recommend this to a friend!
    Purchased for: Self
    This is one of my favorite Lego Sets to build and here is my take on the Carousel build and overall look of it. First the overall look of the carousel from my perspective. This compliments the Lego Ferris Wheel very nicely and using animals instead of traditional horse is a very brilliant move. The carousel is beautifully detailed with trim that it makes you wish you could shrink yourself to that size and ride it yourself. The instructions are nicely done and if you follow it step-by-step then you should end up with a solid Lego Carousel. I have read other reviews saying that they are afraid of picking up and carrying it because it breaks on them. I for one don't find that the case and I would guess if it's falling apart easily either you don't have something right or something is not clicked down. Here are my few negatives on the carousel. The first one is the stickers, for I personally can't stand putting stickers on parts. However, I have become better at applying them and I understand it would drive up the cost of the Lego products if everything was printed. The second one is the small holes that randomly shows up on the decorative trim . It would had been nice if all of them were solid, but it's not a deal breaker for it really isn't that noticeable unless you are really looking for imperfections. I would also guess on a real life carousel that was transported from location to location you would see small imperfections - well that is how I look at it. Thirdly, I hate when I finish a Lego Build for they go to quick. LOL I'm 53 years, so playability isn't a factor; however, I would think the Carousel would have more playability than some of the other sets that I have built.

    My First Creator Set
    | 35-44

    Had fun doing this set. And I have newfound respect for Lego designers. Fairly challenging to make, one just needs to pay attention to details. My only complaint is about the blue arch pieces, I ended up with some holes showing. :( Minor thing though. I added fairylights to this fairy tale carousel. I think it makes it look more like the real rides. :)

    Fun to Build.

    This is a great set to build. The animals are so much fun to build. It is well structured. The biggest flaw is the repetition when you reach Bag Set 5. Overall, I loved it.

    A challenging build
    | 45-54
    I would recommend this to a friend!
    Purchased for: Self
    I would have done this much faster, but I used the wrong pieces in one area, and had to rip it apart again to rebuild it right. This is a challenging build which is now part of my county fair. I really enjoyed this set. It is again a hybrid Lego/Technic set. The Lego minigifs can ride the animals, and they really are very cool the animals go up and down exceptfor the swan. The frog is the hardest to make stable. The decorations on the canopy are very easy to bump and have them fall off. The merry go round would go really well with a music box which can be driven by the same crank/motor. It is really a pretty piece and can be moved by picking it up from the base which is stable. Don't try to grab it like my friend did on the canopy, It was a lot of time repairing it once it came apart. To summarize, a fun and challenginig build. Well designed. When you move it, do so by the base.
